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

Send to Amazon highlights

  • Simplified process steps, reducing time spent creating shipments
  • Reusable case pack templates to provide box content information, box weight and dimensions, and prep and labeling details for SKUs shipped in repeatable single-SKU boxes. Once you save those details in a template, you will not have to re-enter box content information for each shipment, saving you time during replenishment.
  • Pack single and mixed SKU boxes before creating shipments for optimal placement and update quantity as you pack to account for any discrepancies before confirming your shipment destinations
