Same-day handling time allows you to show the customer a faster delivery promise that reflects your ability to pick, pack and ship a product the same day of receiving an order.
For Same-day handling time, all orders received before the order cut-off time must be shipped and confirmed during the day the order was received to avoid late shipments. All orders received after the order cut-off time must be shipped and confirmed during the next day after the order was received.
For products with Same-day handling time enabled, the default order cut-off time for your Standard and Expedited Shipping orders is set to 2 p.m. local time (according to the time zone of your default shipping address). You can check and edit your default order cut-off time in the General Shipping Settings tab on the Shipping Settings page to accommodate your fulfilment operations. To learn more on how to configure order cut-off times, go to Order fulfilment settings.
All orders received before the cut-off time will be expected to be shipped the same day. If an order is received after the cut-off time, you will be expected to ship by the next working day.
Go to Seller Central and follow the below steps:
Orders are only required to be picked, packed and shipped the same day (subject to order cut-off times) when Same-day handling time is enabled
In contrast, Same-day delivery is a Premium Shipping option available to sellers who meet high delivery standards. Same-day delivery requires the order to be delivered to customers on the same day it was ordered (subject to order cut-off times). Amazon mandates that orders using this option be picked, packed and shipped the same day. To learn more, go to Premium Delivery and guaranteed delivery.
By default, Prime orders with Standard Delivery are expected to be shipped the next day after receiving an order. You will have the option to
1): Enable Same-day handling time for a Prime enabled shipping template. When enabled, you will be required to ship products the same day for Standard Shipping to non-Prime members.
2): Enable Same-day default handling time. When enabled, this will require you to ship orders Same-day for both Prime and Non-Prime orders for all ship methods.
No. At this time, Same-day handling time is not applicable for Scheduled Delivery. You may have a Same-day handling time for Arranged Delivery options.
No. All orders received before the order cut-off time must be shipped and confirmed during the day the order was received to avoid late shipments. All orders received after the order cut-off time must be shipped and confirmed during the next day after the order was received.
It depends how you set up Same-day handling time. If you set Same-day handling time as your default account handling time, it will apply to all ASINs that do not have an ASIN-specific handling time configured. If you configure an ASIN-specific handling time, it will override your default handling time for that specific ASIN. If you are eligible and set Same-day handling time on your shipping template, it will only apply to ASINs assigned to that shipping template and which do not have an ASIN-specific handling time.
