If you are eligible to set Same Day handling time, you will be able to do so on your current and new Shipping Templates. This option is only applicable to Domestic Standard and Expedited Delivery options. To enable or disable Same Day Handling Time, you will need to take the following steps:
Under General Shipping Settings, you will be able to view the current order cut-off time for Standard and Expedited Delivery. The order cut-off time only applies to products enabled for Same Day Handling Time. All orders received prior to the cut-off time will be expected to be shipped the same day. If an order is received after the cut-off time, you will be expected to ship by the next business day.
By default, the cut-off time for Standard and Expedited Delivery is set to 11:00 a.m. local time (as per the time zone of your default shipping address). You may edit this setting to accommodate your fulfilment operations. Click here to learn more on how to configure order cut-off times.
No problem! Make sure you have disabled the Same Day handling time option from your shipping templates. Disabling this will cause the handling time to be calculated based on the value that you have set for the SKU on the Manage Inventory page.
Same Day Delivery is a Premium Shipping option available to sellers who meet high delivery standards. Same Day Delivery requires the order to be delivered to the Customer on the same day it was ordered (subject to order cut-off times). Amazon mandates that orders using this option be picked, packed, and shipped the same day. Click here to learn more on Premium Shipping Options and Same Day Delivery.
In contrast, Same Day handling time applies only to Domestic Standard and Expedited Delivery options. Orders are only required to be picked, packed, and shipped the same day (subject to order cut-off times) when Same Day handling time is enabled.
By default, Prime orders with Standard Delivery are expected to be shipped the next day after receiving an order. You will have the option to enable Same Day handling time for a Prime enabled shipping template. When enabled, you will be required to ship products the same day for Standard Shipping to non-Prime members.
No, at this time Same Day handling Time is not applicable for Scheduled Delivery. You may have a Same Day handling time for Arranged Delivery options
