Amazon Shipping Templates

 
 

Overview

By default, shipping charges for Amazon products are configured on Seller Central as an account-level setting. However, you can override them on the product level by configuring Amazon Shipping Templates in Sellercloud and assigning them to products. With this feature, you can adjust the shipping charges for your products based on the shipping service.

Shipping templates can also be used on Amazon’s international sites.
In Sellercloud, you can also import and assign Ship By Region Templates to customize shipping for different regions. However, you can only enable and apply one type of template to your products at a time. This means that you can’t use Ship By Region templates while using the ones described in this article.
