Setting up an Amazon Logistics Integration
This page will help you set up an integration for Amazon Logistics within StoreFeeder
Before you can ship orders using Amazon Logistics, you will need to login to your Amazon Seller account and agree to the Amazon logistics terms and conditions which can be found here.
Additionally, we recommend doing smaller pickwaves for logistics orders due to restrictions with amazon API. We typically recommend around 20 orders per pickwave.
Integrating StoreFeeder with Amazon Logistics as one of your couriers is a simple process. Just follow the instructions below and you should be up and running in no time.
You will need to add packaging size dimensions to your packaging sizes in StoreFeeder as well as ensuring that all of your products have packaging sizes assigned to them.
To add the packaging size dimensions, first go to Settings>Shipping Configuration>Packaging Sizes and enter the packaging dimensions in millimeters into the 'Height', 'Width' and 'Length' fields as shown in the image below. You will need to add dimensions to all existing packaging sizes that you will be using to ship orders through Amazon Logistics.
If you do not have packaging sizes set against your products, you will need to add one to every product that will be shipped via Amazon Logistics. You can add packaging sizes to products individually by clicking 'Edit' on a product and then the 'Additional Information' tab. In the 'Size & Shipping Details' section, you can select the packaging size and enter the packaging quantity. For more information on packaging sizes, see this knowledgebase.
The packaging sizes can be added to your products in bulk using the Product Import / Export Feature.
You will need to ensure you have a fulfilment warehouse set up in your StoreFeeder account to use for Amazon Logistics shipments. To create a new warehouse go to Settings>Warehouse Management>Your Warehouses and click the 'New Warehouse' button.
Enter the warehouse address as the location that your orders will be collected from and set the Warehouse Type as 'Warehouse Fulfilment'.If your Default Fulfilment Warehouse already contains your collection address then you do not need to add another one. However the address has to be close to the collection address registered with Amazon on your account.
