Amazon Ship By Region Template


Overview

Amazon’s shipping templates allow you to customize shipping options for different shipping regions, such as default service levels, transit times, and shipping rates. For example, you can set up different shipping rules per state and offer 2-day shipping in one region but not the rest of North America.

Once you have created your shipping templates on Seller Central, you can import them to Sellercloud as Ship By Region templates. Then, you can use Sellercloud to assign the templates to your products.

In Sellercloud, there are two types of shipping templates for Amazon – the Ship By Region templates described in this article and the standard Amazon Shipping Templates that allow you to configure rates for different shipping services. However, you can only enable and apply one type of template to your products at a time. By enabling Ship By Region templates, you disable the other type.
