  2. After you have marked your inventory as shipped, the shipping information you can edit will depend on the delivery type and the carrier you selected.
  3. If you cancel a shipment after you have sent it, contact your carrier to have your inventory returned. If the shipment's status is "Receiving," any inventory already scanned will remain in inventory unless you submit a removal request. Make arrangements with your carrier to return your unscanned inventory.

Editing a Shipment

Until the shipment is received, you have the ability to make edits as mentioned above. All shipments can be cancelled, with the exception of shipments that have been Closed.

If you discover that what you have shipped does not match what you have entered in the shipping workflow, you can edit your shipment up until it has been received at the fulfilment centre. From the Shipping Queue follow these steps.

  1. Click on the Shipment Name or "Work on Shipment" (this can also be "View and Track" if the status is "Shipped" or later).
  2. Click the step in the workflow bar where you want to make edits.
  3. Make the changes and click "Save & Continue."
Note: Any steps in the workflow navigation bar with padlock icon are locked (read-only) and cannot be edited.
 

Deleting or Cancelling a Shipment

You can delete or cancel a shipment if the status is not "Closed." If you have already shipped your inventory, make arrangements with your carrier to have the shipment returned or rerouted.

From the Shipping Queue, you can delete (cancel) a shipment.

  1. Click on the Shipment Name or the "Work on Shipment" button (this can also be "View and Track" if the status is "Shipped" or later).
  2. Click "Delete Shipment" or "Cancel Shipment" (depending on the status of your shipment) at the bottom of the screen.

Once a shipment has been deleted or cancelled, it can't be reopened.

When your shipment is in "Receiving" status, you can verify whether your inventory has been received by checking the quantities received in the shipping workflow Summary. If there is a discrepancy in the shipment, it will remain in "Receiving" status until the discrepancy is corrected. The discrepancy could be for any of the following reasons:

  • Items are not labelled properly
    • No sticker
    • Mislabelled (sticker does not match item)
    • Labels not scannable (low ink or toner in your printer, smudged labels)
    • Labels missing information (barcode, FNSKU, title)
  • Items are not listed on the website or have an unknown title (listing needs to be created)
  • Items are not listed with the Shipment ID
  • More items were shipped than what is expected (overage)
  • Items are missing
  • Items are damaged
  • Items don't match indicated condition (new, used, etc.)

Note: Storage fees may apply to all items received whether processed for fulfilment or not.

If it's been more than three business days since your inventory was delivered to our fulfilment centre, and it has not been Closed, file a support case by using the Contact Us form.

Inbound Shipment Notification

After you ship your inventory, you have the option to receive notifications as your inventory arrives and is checked in to an Amazon fulfilment centre. There are three notifications you can receive by e-mail.

Inbound Shipment
Checked-In

Notifies you when an inbound shipment has been checked in to the destination fulfilment centre.

Inbound Shipment
Receiving

Notifies you when inbound shipment inventory is being processed into inventory at the destination fulfilment centre.

Inbound Shipment
Received In-Full

Notifies you when an inbound shipment's contents have been fully received into inventory at the destination fulfilment centre.

You can enable or disable these notifications. The default for all accounts is "enabled." You can change the settings by going to Seller Central > Settings > Notification Options.

  1. Click "Edit" under Order Notification.
  2. Next to Inbound Shipment Notifications, select your preferred option: "enabled" or "disabled."
  3. Click "Update" at the bottom of the page.

You can modify a shipment up until the time it has been received at the fulfilment centre. From the Shipping Queue, click the Shipment Name or the "Work on Shipment" or "View & Track" button. This will take you directly into the shipping workflow where you last left off.
