Learn how to block Amazon logistics tracking within Listing Mirror
NOTE: Block Amazon Logistics Tracking must be turned off inside of Amazon Seller Central for this setting to work through Listing Mirror.
Blocking Amazon logistics within Listing Mirror allows you to fulfill some orders using Amazon carriers (to capture the lower fulfillment price), and use traditional carriers such as USPS and UPS to fulfill other orders. This allows you, the retailer, to get the best of both worlds!
1. On the menubar, select Integrations, and click Manage Integrations
2. Select the integration you'd like to manage.
3. Click the inventory tab, and navigate to Block Amazon Logistics
Remember, this only works for FBA inventory sources, so make sure at least one is enabled. You will need:
1. One or more FBA inventory source must be enabled for the marketplace.
2. Update Quantity must be checked.
3. AutoFill MCF Orders must be enabled.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can this feature be enabled for just one marketplace and not affect all integrations?
A: Yes, this setting is set up at an integration level. If you want it set up for your entire account, you'll need to enable it for every integration. Keep in mind that if you are fulfilling through MCF for Walmart, it is required to block Amazon Logistics.
Q: Does Amazon charge extra for this feature?
A: Yes, there is a 5% surcharge for this feature on Amazon. It's 5% on top of your normal MCF rate, so it would be .05 times what you are currently paying for MCF. You can check out their Fulfillment Fees page to learn more. Listing Mirror does not charge extra for this feature.
Q: What if I have the setting turned on inside my Amazon Seller Central account?
A: If you select "Yes" inside of Amazon Seller Central (shown below), we will fill all channel orders using the Block Amazon Logistics option. This will result in a 5% surcharge fee for all orders, regardless of how you have set up your channel settings inside of Listing Mirror. Be sure to set your Amazon Seller Central account to "No" for the Block Amazon Logistics setting, and utilize Listing Mirror's integration settings to get the best of both worlds!
