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.
All sellers are required to offer standard delivery. 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. To offset the difference, you can adjust your shipping charges or the price of your product. For more information, see Configure shipping rates & restrictions and Manage your inventory.
To customise shipping preferences, go to your Shipping Settings.
