Default transit times for domestic sellers

Amazon sets the default transit time for new shipping templates, as shown in the table below. The default transit time is the setting that is automatically populated when you create a new template. If you are not able to meet the maximum allotted default transit time with your current carrier, then you need to set different timelines in your shipping templates.

UK Seller Delivery Policy

We require sellers to offer Standard Delivery to all addresses in the UK for the same delivery fee. This includes addresses in England, Scotland (including the Highlands, Orkney, Shetland and all other islands), Wales, Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Isles of Scilly and the Channel Islands. Failure to comply with this policy may result in action being taken against your selling account. The following actions are examples of seller behaviour that are not permitted given this policy:

  • Using product description bullet points to refuse delivery to certain regions or to request additional delivery fees
  • Using product description bullet points to request that customers in certain regions choose ‘express delivery’ in order to collect additional delivery fees
  • Contacting customers to request additional delivery fees.
Note: The only exception to the above policy is for products that are eligible for scheduled delivery as part of their enrolment in the Heavy & Large Programme. As part of this Heavy & Large Programme, sellers can adjust delivery charges in regions via their Delivery Settings, but they are still required to comply with all other requirements of the policy.
