With no extra seller fees, you can participate in the Local Delivery program to expand your business and increase sales in your home country. Local Delivery allows you to fulfill orders directly to customers in your home country, using the inventory that you might have already stored locally.
Following are the benefits of this program:
Customers in your country shopping on Amazon.com are able to see your offers ship to them faster, and usually they are less expensive as your products are delivered within the same country. They can see these delivery benefits on the product detail page and the offer listing page. They can also find your products in the search results by using the Ships Locally filter. Products included in the Ships Locally search results display a fast local-shipping message. Your products might also appear on the merchandizing pages relevant for customers in your home country.
The Local Delivery program is applicable to you if you are based outside of US and its enrollment is currently by invitation only.
To participate in this program, you must meet the following requirements:
You must enroll in the Local Delivery program in order to enable local delivery in your shipping templates. After enrolling, your shipping templates display the Local Delivery checkbox in your home country section. You are required to offer fast local-delivery speed after you select Local Delivery.
If you are invited to this program, you can find the enrollment banner on the Shipping Settings page. During the enrollment process, you can choose to enable local delivery by updating all your existing shipping templates at one-go or manually updating them one by one. Updating all the existing shipping templates automatically updates the transit time and shipping fees for your home country and enables local delivery for all your existing templates. The SKUs assigned to these templates are automatically enrolled for local delivery. You must confirm that you have inventory in your home country for SKUs assigned to all the existing templates and can adjust shipping rates for each template. While manually updating the shipping templates, you can enable local delivery by following the steps below:
To create new templates, follow step 4 and step 5 above, and assign SKUs to the new template.
To enable/disable local delivery, you can edit your shipping templates by selecting and clearing the Local Delivery check box in your home country section.
