Create shipments with Send to Amazon

Important: For a one-year period starting April 12, 2022, we will provide an average discount of 50% on Amazon Partnered Carrier program fees for domestic FBA shipments sent to fulfillment centers in Germany, France, Italy, and Spain. To learn more about this discount, go to Amazon Partnered Carrier program promotional discount FAQ.

Send to Amazon is a streamlined shipment creation workflow that requires fewer steps to replenish your Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) inventory.

With Send to Amazon, you can do the following:

  • Save time creating shipments with simplified process steps.
  • Create reusable case pack templates to provide box content information, box weight and dimensions, and prep and labeling details for shipments of single-SKU boxes. The templates are ideal when you use the same box configuration for a SKU because you won't have to re-enter the details each time you replenish inventory.
  • Pack single-SKU and mixed-SKU boxes before you create shipments, and update quantities as you pack, before you confirm your shipment destinations.
  • Choose the best option to ship your inventory as individual boxes (small parcel delivery) or pallets (less than truckload delivery).
  • Compare estimated carrier fees to make the best choice between shipping your inventory as individual boxes (small parcel delivery to Amazon) or pallets (arranging for an LTL or truck load delivery to Amazon).
