Enter Buy Shipping preferences for all shipping locations

These Buy Shipping preferences apply to all shipping locations, regardless of the default shipping address that is used. You can set custom package types, confirmation preferences, and insurance settings.

On the Buy Shipping preferences page, you can create custom package types for shipping your products. When you create a new package type, enter the dimensions into the Buy Shipping preferences page. Once complete, this allows you to select that package type when purchasing shipping.

To create, modify, delete, or reorganize custom packaging, go to the Buy Shipping preferences page:

  1. 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.
  2. Next to an order, click Buy shipping, and then click Buy Shipping preferences.
  3. Click Edit in the Preferences for all ship-from locations area to manage custom packages.
  4. Perform one or more of these actions:
    • To add a new package type, click Add New package button and fill in the columns.
    • To delete an existing package type, click delete on the right side of the row.
    • To modify an existing package type, type the new information over the existing information.
  5. Click the Save all changes button to save your changes.
Note: In the second column of Buy Shipping Services, you can select the Custom package and type in different values for any of the three package dimensions for a one-time shipping purchase. The one-time dimensions will not be saved for future use.

Confirmation preferences allow you to preselect settings for all of your shipments or for shipments over a defined package value. These settings will apply to all shipments regardless of the warehouse they are shipped from.

In the Confirmation preferences section, select one of the following preferences:
  • None: Confirmation will never be preselected in Buy Shipping.
  • For all packages: Your preferred confirmation method will be preselected in Buy Shipping.
  • For all packages over a defined value: Your preferred confirmation method will be preselected in Buy Shipping for all packages over the value you define.

If you select confirmation for either all packages or packages over a defined value you will have the following options:

  • Delivery confirmation: Carrier will confirm when package is delivered (charges usually apply and vary per carrier).
  • Signature confirmation: Carrier will obtain a signature when package is delivered (charges usually apply and vary per carrier).

Insurance preferences allow you to set your 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 the warehouse they are shipped from.

In the Insurance section, select one of the following preferences:
  • None: Insurance will never be preselected in Buy Shipping.
  • For all packages: Insurance will be preselected for all packages.
  • For all packages over a defined value: Insurance will be preselected for all packages over the value you define.
Notes:
  • The package value for insurance coverage will be set to the total cost charged to the buyer (excluding tax).
  • The default insurance based on the carrier and shipping method is always available. For more information, see Optional coverage for loss or damage.
