Amazon Buy Shipping API
Buying shipping label from Amazon is required for participants for “Amazon Seller Fulfilled Prime” programs. Teapplix supports the new Amazon Buy Shipping API so you can purchase shipping labels for Amazon orders directly in Teapplix software, in bulk.
Auto Recognize Prime Orders
Teapplix recognizes Amazon Seller Fulfilled Prime orders automatically. In the “Shipping:” field, Teapplix will show “SELLER PRIME-xxxx”, where xxxx is the speed of shipping class chosen by the buyers, which is typically Standard or 2Day. This allows such orders to be filtered automatically and moved into a separate queue for expedited handling. (To learn how to setup such an automatic filter, go to our Order Management section of the help site.)
Purchase Shipping Labels from Amazon
Sellers that turn on “Buy Shipping API” for their Amazon account will be able to bulk print shipping labels using the same automated process in Teapplix today. To turn on “Buy Shipping API” in your Teapplix account, go to Setup => Amazon, and click the checkbox “Buy Shipping API” for your Amazon account that qualifies for the service, and press “Save”.
To print labels for Seller Fulfilled Prime orders, you musst turn on Buy Shipping API in Teapplix. Label for those order will be purchased from Amazon automatically. Teapplix supports all the carriers that Amazon provides today: USPS, UPS, FedEx and Stamps.com.
If you will use UPS and FedEx provided by Amazon, you need to go to Setup->Shipping page, check "Enable Amazon Fulfillment', and expand "configure shipping methods" to select those ship method you would need under Amazon Buy Shipping API (please ignore the Amazon FBA ship methods).
Using Stamps.com vs Amazon USPS on Amazon Buy Shipping API
If you would like to use Stamps.com linked to your Amazon account, rather than normal USPS account provided by Amazon, you need to email firstname.lastname@example.org. We have to change a setting in your Teapplix account for this to work.
Endicia is not offered currently as choice on Amazon Buy Shipping API.
When you click on the “rate” link in Teapplix on a seller fulfilled prime order, Teapplix shows you the rate of the currently selected method from Amazon, as well as rates for all other shipping methods that Amazon currently allow for such an order.
For each order, based on the buyer's address, Amazon might only allow certain ship methods to be used. If the ship method you selected is giving an error, please click on the Rate action link and find out all the ship methods that are allowed to use for that specific order.
Voiding Labels and Refunds
If a shipping label was printed incorrectly, it can be voided on in Teapplix using the “cancel label” link. The order will be marked as unshipped and return back to open orders.
Note that the refund for the voided label may take five days to five weeks, per Amazon policies and practices. (All charges and refunds for shipping labels are managed in Seller Central.)
