Shipping and getting paid for your orders

Two things are true for almost all orders—they must be shipped and you'd like to be paid for them.

Here's how it works…

Shipping Credits

  • You can ship your orders using the carrier and method of your choice. We require only that the method you choose fulfills the order within the buyer's chosen timeframe.
  • Amazon collects a shipping fee directly from the buyer, then passes a shipping credit to you.
  • You must ship the order even if the shipping credit does not cover all shipping costs. Please consider the item's weight and regional shipping costs when selecting your shipping options.
  • For more information on how fees and credits are calculated, search on "commission fee" in seller Help.

Getting Paid!

The first step in getting paid for an order is for you to confirm the shipment. This notifies us and the buyer that the order is on its way, and it starts the process of crediting your seller account. If the shipment is not confirmed within 30 days of the order date, we will cancel the order and the buyer will not be charged.
