See this article for a list of Frequently Asked Questions related to shipping Amazon Self-Fulfilled Prime orders with ShipWorks.
First Things First
If you have qualified for Amazon's Seller Fulfilled Prime shipping program and want to use Amazon as your shipper in ShipWorks, you must first:
- Submit a support ticket or give us a call to request that we enable the Amazon shipper option on your ShipWorks setup.
Set up Amazon as a shipper in ShipWorks. (You can do this now, or you can set it up when you ship your first Amazon Prime order via Amazon).
You will need to be on ShipWorks version 5.18 or later in order to batch process Amazon Self Fulfilled Prime orders, to automatically select the Least Expensive Rate for Amazon SFP orders, or to ship Amazon SFP orders using the Shipping panel. Click here for assistance with upgrading to the latest version of ShipWorks.
USING THE SHIP ORDERS SCREEN
1. Select the Amazon Prime order(s) you wish to ship.
2. Open the Ship Orders screen by clicking on the Home tab and then on the Ship Orders button or by clicking on the Ship Orders button in the Shipping panel.
3. Verify that Amazon is selected as the Provider. Then, configure the shipment by selecting the Service:, Weight:, Dimensions:, Confirmation: and Insurance: settings for each shipment.
Using the Least Expensive Rate Service Option
You have the option of selecting to have ShipWorks automatically select the least expensive service option. To do so:
a. Select Least Expensive Rate from the Service drop-down menu.
b. The least expensive service will be automatically selected. However, if you wish to select a different service, you can do so by clicking on the service you wish to use from the list of available service in the Rates window..
You might notice that some options normally seen on the Ship Orders' Service tab are unavailable here. With Amazon Prime orders, certain information, such as the ship-to address, is pulled directly from the Amazon order and is not editable or visible in ShipWorks.
Process the Shipments
4. Once the shipment is properly configured, click the Create Label(s) button to generate the shipping label(s).
USING THE SHIPPING PANEL
The shipping panel can be used to process Amazon Self Fulfilled Prime Orders one at a time. If the Shipping Panel is not visible, click on the View tab Show Panels button select Shipping.
1. Select the order for which you wish to create a shipping label.
2. Select the service you wish to use and verify that the weight and dimensions for the package are correct. If you wish to use the Least Expensive Rate option, see the above section.
3. Once the shipment is correctly configured, click the Create Label button to generate the shipping label.
If you have set up Amazon as a shipper, the label will be printed to the default printer selected.
If you have not yet set up Amazon as a shipper, the Amazon Setup Wizard will walk you through this setup now.
