Amazon Preferred Shippers Programme for EU sellers outside the 5 European stores

What is the Preferred Shippers Programme?

Amazon’s Preferred Shipper Programme is a referral program available to FBA Sellers from European countries located outside Amazon's 5 European stores (UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain). Amazon has negotiated competitive rates with our preferred shippers to enable sellers to inbound inventory to Amazon Fulfilment centres across Europe.

What are the benefits of the Preferred Shippers Programme?

  • Easily manage the shipping of your inventory from EU countries outside the 5 European stores to Amazon fulfilment centres in Europe.
  • Get an optimal service level with trusted carriers who are familiar with Amazon delivery appointments and inbound procedures.
  • Decrease your inventory shipping costs between 15% to 50% on standard rates offered by carriers (depending on origin country).
  • Choose either to drop parcels to a local pickup point or request a carrier to collect them at your facility.
  • Estimate shipping rates, make payments directly to carriers and track the parcels you ship.

How can I take advantage of the Preferred Shipper Programme?

To participate in the programme, visit the sites of the carriers listed above and follow the instructions as outlined. In most cases, you will be directed to create an account with the carrier. This will identify you as an FBA Seller and give you access to the negotiated rates.

What makes it different from the existing Partner Carrier Programme with UPS and DHL?

The Preferred Shipper programme is currently a non-integrated offering whereby Amazon has negotiated rates with carriers and can refer FBA Sellers to these rates.

Please be aware that if you elect to retain a carrier, you will be contracting directly with that carrier, which will be providing services directly to you. You will engage in a contractual agreement with the carrier and make payments directly to them. Amazon will only refer you to these carriers.
