Before I upload to Amazon, I have a question....

Ok, (Ratesh if you are out there, I got a working barcode label code), so I'm ready to get my fba items up onto Amazon (UK).

My question is this. Once uploaded does it also create a shipment to work on in Amazon or is the inventory simply uploaded awaiting to be put in an FBA shipment.

I ask because I send my items by a pallet and Amazon can sometimes close a shipment destination they assigned to you mid shipment if you are taking a few days to complete the shipment.

So whilst testing Listtee out I don't want to upload a few hundred books to a redetermined warehouse and then have Amazon change the warehouse forcing me to either cancel the shipment or send a half shipment.

Many thanks and sorry for the long winded question!

    You should probably do the following

    1) list one item via listtee and give it a shipment name e.g "Clickdrop_pallet"
    2) then go back to listtee and every 20-30 items hit the 'list inventory to amazon' button and then select 'add to existing shipment name' . This will allow you to feed that shipment name

    Amazon has been changing warehouses frequently. So your best bet is to keep listing frequently rather than let items sit and accumulate in listtee.

    Also your ship-from address must be identical to what's on Amazon ( even lower case/upper case, commas, full stops etc ) Even then it may not be full proof for you to replenish within seller central and Listtee. Amazon is a bit strange that way and switching warehouse ids and items.

    I would advise on starting and finishing shipments via Listtee. In listtee, add/list/create shipment name - then keep replenishing that shipment name. Just start with one item - to test the workflow out.

    Hopefully I answered your questions.

  • Thanks Ratesh, one last question.

    On Amazon UK when you are building a shipment, you get assigned a box number and have to print out the box barcode to attatch to the box, once the box is full you then "start a new box" and you get another unique barcode to print out and put on the box.

    If you are sending a pallet you may have up to 50 boxes in that shipment. SO as well as the shipment label you print out at the end which gets attatched to each box to tie it to the shipment you also have to put on these box identifier barcode labels as well.

    I'm guessing Listtee doesn't work like this and you simple create a single shipment of one box and then when you complete the shipment you print off the number of actual boxes in the shipment and attatch say the 50 shipment identifier labels to each box.

    As we have only ever sent pallets to Amazon with unique box identifiers do you know of any Listtee users who do send UK pallets without the additional box barcode labels.

    I've attatched a of screen shot of the shipment building screen of Amazon UK to show you.

    Thanks

    Rich ,

    Preparing pallets in Uk or USA is the same. I do it all the time. You don't need to go the identifier route for each box which is probably a lot more work...

    In Listtee you create a shipment name after you have listed an item to Amazon, then you can come back to listtee and keep adding to that shipment name until you're done. Then when you're done , you can click on the shipment Q, click on work on shipment . Continue and follow instructions for LTL, pallets. You just print out for total number of boxes, and then 4 per pallet and then stretch wrap it. Which i'm sure you are familiar with..

    That's great news Ratesh. I work for a big charity and we use Mo****n there (don't want to plug them on your forum) and we have a few problems with FBA with them. Your interface is much cleaner, I'm glad we won't encounter any problems.

    All the best, and I'm super impressed with the speedy support and functionality implementations - great!
