Set Faster Default Handing Time For Seller Fulfilled Orders

Set a Faster Default Handling Time

 đź“˘ Amazon has recently announced its new customizable default handling time settings for Seller-Fulfilled Prime orders!

Effective May 25, 2021, sellers with professional selling plans can now set one-business-day lead times for their products—one day faster than the previous two-day handling times!

With quicker estimated shipping times, you will be able to serve your customers better, and you’ll be more likely to be highlighted as the “Featured Offer” on Amazon’s product details pages. Therefore, leveraging this update could lead to increased customer satisfaction and sales. đź’°

But for sellers who don’t have the operational capabilities to pack and ship orders within one day or who can ship only a portion of their catalog within one day and need to adjust settings on a SKU by SKU basis, Amazon recommended selecting a longer handling time using:

  • Amazon Seller Central’s Inventory page for updating each single product on by one
  • Upload of Inventory Excel files for bulk catalog updates

To change your product’s default handling time from two business days to one business day, follow Amazon’s step-by-step guide in this post.
