Now that you have created packing templates, you can proceed to step 1 in creating a shipment with Send to Amazon, Choose inventory to send.
To choose inventory to send, follow these steps:
Select your Ship from address. This is the address from which you will send your inventory. By default, this will show the last address from which you shipped.
Select the Marketplace destination. This is the Amazon marketplace where your inventory will be sent.
The drop-down menu lists the marketplaces where you have already enabled Multi-country Inventory storage, as well as those marketplaces where you can choose to enable it by accepting the MCI terms and conditions. Once you select the marketplace destination, the page will display the list of your FBA SKUs for that marketplace.
Select a SKU, choose an existing packing template, enter the Number of boxes to send and click on Confirm. If an expiry date is required for your product, you will be prompted to enter it. If you have a manufacturing lot code (MLC), you can enter it in Additional details by clicking on the drop-down arrow.
After adding all the inventory you want to send and verifying the prep and labelling fees (if applicable), click on Confirm and continue.
Note: Make sure that you select the packing template that matches the inventory you are sending. You can change SKUs or quantities until you confirm shipping in step 2 of the workflow. At this stage in the workflow, your inventory selection will have an associated Send to Amazon workflow ID. Once you confirm shipping, shipment IDs and Amazon reference numbers are assigned.
To learn how to change or cancel your shipment, refer to Send to Amazon: Change or cancel your shipment.
Frequently asked questions
What are the ‘All FBA SKUs’ and ‘SKUs ready to send’ tabs?
All FBA SKUs displays all of your SKUs that have been converted to Fulfilled by Amazon for the marketplace destination you selected. SKUs ready to send lets you review just the SKUs you have selected to send to a fulfilment centre.
What is ‘Ship from’?
This is the address from which your inventory is shipped. By default, this will show the last address that you shipped from. You can change this address until you confirm shipping in step 2 of the workflow.
Important: Amazon requires an accurate ship-from address to ensure proper placement of your inventory and the accuracy of shipping charges.
What if I have a partial box in addition to a few full boxes to ship?
Currently, for each shipment you create in Send to Amazon, you can only use one packing template per SKU. We are working to enable shipments with more than one packing configuration per SKU.
