This page contains questions you should review if your shipments have not been received at the fulfilment centres.
From the Shipping Queue you can monitor the status of your shipments to Amazon's fulfilment centres.
If you have any questions about your shipments, follow these guidelines:
When a shipment's status changes to "Checked in" it means at least a portion of the shipment has arrived at the fulfilment centre, but no units from the shipment have been received. Once the fulfilment centre begins scanning barcodes and receiving the inventory, the status will change to "Receiving."
Shipments received at the wrong fulfilment centre can take additional days to be received. You can confirm the shipment is delivered to the correct fulfilment centre by comparing the delivery location from your carrier to the assigned fulfilment centre in your shipment Summary page.
When multiple shipments arrive at the same fulfilment centre, units may be received to a different shipment ID. The units will be received to your inventory, but will appear missing from the shipment. To verify the units were received, review the Received Inventory Report for the missing FNSKU.
If any of your units were not properly labelled and packaged, those units will be set to one side and could take additional time to receive. Learn more about Packaging and Prep Requirements.
Sometimes sellers inadvertently send the wrong product in a shipment. For instance, a seller who listed 20 red units in a shipment might have accidentally dispatched 20 blue units. Verify that the units you sent matched the ones you included in the shipment. From your Shipping Queue, go to the shipment Summary page and check if any SKUs other than what you thought you dispatched were received. This could mean that you substituted one product for another in the shipment.
Contact your distributor and verify the quantity of each product sent and the item-package quantity (for sets).
Check your orders to see if any of the units you sent in have been sold. This could account for the quantity not matching what you sent to the fulfilment centre.
Review the information in the Shipment Reconciliation Tool in the Reconcile tab on the Summary page in the Shipment Creation Workflow for your shipment. You can begin researching any discrepancies and classify them for additional research. You may be asked to provide additional documentation through the Shipment Reconciliation Tool. While Amazon may request documentation at any time, the following situations require additional documentation to be submitted to Seller Support for research.
