You can set Buy Shipping preferences for purchasing shipping through Buy Shipping in Seller Central. By entering preferences, you can decrease the time that it takes to purchase each shipping label.
To learn more about how to buy shipping, see Buy shipping through Seller Central.
To set your preferences:
Select Settings at the top right of any page in Seller Central, click Account Info, and then click Buy Shipping Preferences under Shipping and Returns Information.
Certain preferences will be for all shipping locations, while other preferences will be specific to the location selected.
If you frequently ship packages of the same size, you can create custom package types to choose from when you buy shipping. This will save you time since you won't have to repeatedly enter the same dimensions. Enter a name for the package type so you’ll remember what it’s for.
Select your preferred method for receiving confirmations.
Insurance preferences allow you to set optional insurance settings for all of your shipments, or only for shipments over a defined package value. These settings will apply to all shipments regardless of which warehouse they are shipped from.
To learn more, see Enter Buy Shipping preferences for all shipping locations.
Use these preferences to prioritize your available shipping methods in Buy Shipping. Drag carriers from right to left in order of preference. To exclude a carrier, leave it outside of the box. If you don't have a preference, you don't need to change anything.
To learn more, see Enter Buy Shipping preferences for ship-from locations.
Amazon charges shipping and related services to your seller account. If you have an account with one of the listed carriers, you can sign in to buy shipping through your carrier account instead. Based on this prioritization, Buy Shipping will select the lowest cost shipping service your carriers offer that meet the required delivery date.
