Amazon ShopLocal is an invitation-only program that allows sellers to ship eligible products within their city, sub-state or state, instead of nationwide, which is required for all other products. Sellers participating in this program can choose to ship products only within their state regions (for example, California), sub-state regions (for example, Southern California), and cities (for example, Los Angeles). Customizing regions outside of those defined in a seller’s Shipping Settings is not available.
The ShopLocal program is currently extending a limited number of invitations to select sellers. If you are interested in the program, apply online.
Only certain products are eligible for Seller Fulfilled Local-Only. Eligible products include:
You can also offer services on your selection, such as: installation or assembly. Learn more about offering services for your local products on the Services Help page.
Any product in the Grocery category.
Selection that is restricted from being sold to a certain region can possibly qualify for Amazon ShopLocal. Examples include:
To ensure that your selection is accurately enrolled in Amazon’s ShopLocal program, please include weight and dimension information in all of your ASINs during onboarding. As the seller of record on Amazon, you are solely responsible for controlling shipment of your products, including those items with regional distribution restrictions and you must ensure you select the right regions when creating your shipping settings. Failure to abide by applicable regulations will result in your expulsion from the ShopLocal program, and if relevant, the Professional Healthcare Category.
Furthermore, if you include selection in Amazon ShopLocal that does not qualify through any of the categories outlined above, we will ask you to remove the selection from your regional template or, if applicable, update weight and dimension information. If you fail to do so after two notices, we will reassign the selection to a Standard Nationwide template with a shipping rate of $4.99/Order + $0.99/lb. We will also remove your eligibility to participate in the ShopLocal program. If your eligibility is removed, you can appeal the decision by submitting a plan of action to firstname.lastname@example.org. Describe how, if you became eligible again, you would ensure that your selection in ShopLocal would not violate program requirements again.
Amazon ShopLocal offers are only shown to customers located in deliverable regions. For customers located outside deliverable regions, these offers will not appear in search results or win the BuyBox. If the offers are unique, customers will also see a message in the Offer Listings Page (OLP) stating there are no deliverable offers to their Location. If, while shopping, a customer changes their address to a deliverable region, deliverable local offers that were previously undeliverable will reappear in search and OLP and will be able to win BuyBox.
