OK, so as the title says, I’ve been trying to find out whether SFP sellers are allowed to use Tracked48 again. Since they taken it away a good few months ago, it’s cost us a fortune having to upgrade orders to Tracked 24.
I read on these forums a few weeks ago:
“For Standard orders, you may notice on some occasions that only a Next Day ship method is available and you do not have the option to buy a slower one. In these instances you are temporarily permitted to buy shipping outside of the Buy Shipping tool, and may purchase tracked shipping labels directly from 3rd party carriers Royal Mail, DPD, Hermes, UK Mail, Parcel force or Yodel provided that you confirm dispatch and provide order tracking ID in Seller Central.”
I wasn’t sure how true this was, so I have created a case to the SFP support team, their reply was a bit wishy-washy and less specific than above, it just basically said if you don’t have offers on buy shipping then you can use 3rd party carriers and later give these order ID’s to amazon so they can annotate the account. Heard that hundreds of times and it doesn’t really answer my question on ‘standard’ orders. I will go back for a more detailed answer there.
So what I’m suggesting is, ignoring the offer of Tracked24 on buy shipping and instead buying a Tracked48 label directly from RM and upload the tracking details to amazon. Is anyone doing this?
