Shipping credits for individual sellers

  • This Help page does not apply to sellers with Professional selling plans.
  • Sellers with Individual selling plans cannot update shipping charges.

When you ship an order, you will receive a standardised shipping credit. Amazon sets shipping charges based on the product category and the shipping method selected by the buyer, and then credits what the buyer was charged to your account.

For media products (Books, Music, Video and DVD), sellers may also elect to offer Express Delivery UK or international delivery.

You must ship orders even if the shipping credit is less than your total shipping costs. For more information, go to Configure shipping rates & restrictions and Manage your inventory.

To customize shipping preferences, go to your Shipping Settings.
