With Buy Shipping you can purchase your shipping labels through Seller Central with supported carriers for your seller-fulfilled orders. At this time, we offer DPD, Hermes and Royal Mail as supported carriers in the United Kingdom.
To use DPD as a carrier to fulfil your seller-fulfilled orders, you can start the onboarding process via this link and indicate your preferences. There is no requirement to have an existing DPD account. After you have completed the registration process, a DPD representative will contact you to get you onboarded. Once the setup is complete and your first DPD collection has been confirmed, you will receive confirmation from Amazon and you can start purchasing DPD shipping labels through Buy Shipping services. Do not purchase a DPD shipping label until you have confirmation of setup from Amazon and DPD.
If you want to use Royal Mail drop-off services, you can begin to purchase shipping labels immediately. If you are willing to use Amazon’s negotiated Royal Mail drop-off rates, no additional setup is required, and you will be able to see these options in Buy Shipping straight away. If you are using this option, you will need to drop off your seller-fulfilled orders at a Royal Mail Customer Service Point (CSP). You can find your closest CSP here.
If you have an existing business account with Royal Mail you may access your own pre-negotiated rates for the following ship methods: Tracked24®, Tracked48®, Royal Mail 24® and 48®. If you have these services and you prefer to use Royal Mail to fulfil your seller-fulfilled orders, you can complete the registration process here and link your Royal Mail account automatically through Manage your carrier accounts. For further information on how to link your account, click here.
You can use Hermes drop-off service and begin purchasing shipping services immediately, no additional setup is required if you are willing to use Amazon’s negotiated Hermes drop-off rates. You will be able to see the delivery options in Buy Shipping straight away. If you are using this option, you will need to drop off your seller-fulfilled orders at a Hermes ParcelShop. You can find your closest Hermes ParcelShop here.
Shipping labels will only be available for you to purchase in Buy Shipping after carrier onboarding has been completed. This means once the first pick-up with the carrier is scheduled. Carrier onboarding is expected to be completed in 3-5 working days after you have completed the self-service registration process. After carrier onboarding has been completed, shipping options will become visible in Buy Shipping and you can purchase these to fulfil your seller-fulfilled orders.
