Review shipments to Amazon

On the Review Shipments page, you can review and approve your shipment. After you approve a shipment, the Review Shipments page becomes the View Shipments page.

Review Shipments is the fourth step in the six-step shipment creation workflow:


  1. Set Quantity
  2. Prepare Products
  3. Label Products
  4. Review/View Shipments
  5. Prepare Shipment
  6. Summary

When you create a shipping plan, the inventory in that shipping plan may be split into multiple shipments to different fulfillment centers in order to:

  • Manage special storage or handling requirements
  • Ensure proper processing at the fulfillment center

The Review Shipments page displays a list of the shipments, as well as the shipment ID and destination fulfillment center for each shipment. Each shipment created as part of a shipping plan has its own shipment ID.

Changes you make to your shipping plan may change the number of items in each shipment. For example, adding 12 items of a single product to your shipping plan may result in two shipments of six items each. If you change the total quantity from 12 to nine items, your plan may be updated, resulting in one shipment of seven items and a second shipment of two items.

Make sure you review your shipping plan before you approve it. We recommend that you do not print the pack list until after you approve the shipping plan. Pack lists printed before you approve a shipping plan may not reflect any changes you made before approving the plan, and may lead to errors in your shipments. For example, if you send an unexpected number of items to a fulfillment center (too many or too few), this discrepancy will appear in the Shipping Queue as a problem with your shipment.

Review shipment information

On the Review Shipments page, you can review and approve your shipment. The information provided includes:

  • Shipment name: A name is assigned to your shipment based on the date, time, and number of shipments included in the plan after it is split.
    Tip: You can change the shipment name by typing a new name in the text box. When you have an existing shipping plan for the same fulfillment center that you haven't yet sent, you can add the new shipment to an existing shipment.
  • Shipment ID: A shipment ID is created automatically.
  • MSKUs: The number of MSKUs (unique product identifiers) included in the shipment
  • Units: The quantity of each MSKU in the shipment
  • Ship to: The code and location of the destination fulfillment center

You can see the entire contents of a shipment by clicking View shipment contents. Click Hide shipment contents to collapse the list.

Approve shipments

Click Approve shipments to approve the shipping plan.

Make sure you confirm the details before you approve a shipment. After you approve your shipment:

  • You can’t delete it.
  • Your ability to update product quantities is limited,
  • Any offers currently listed as Fulfilled by Merchant will be changed to Fulfilled by Amazon.
    Important: Previous listings will become inactive on Amazon and you will no longer be able to fulfill orders for those products yourself. After your inventory is received at the fulfillment center, those listings will become active again and Amazon will begin fulfilling orders for those products for you.
  • Shipments that you approve will be expected at the assigned Amazon fulfillment centers.
    Important: We rely on your approved shipping plans to coordinate our operations. Misrouting your shipment can delay receipt of your inventory and, therefore, its availability for sale to buyers. Misrouted shipments may also necessitate additional, unplanned processing and handling services, which can increase your costs.

After you click Approve shipments, the Review Shipments page becomes the View Shipments page.
