See each section below for column descriptions and available actions.

  1. Select the shipment to work on, if you have multiple shipments.
  2. Select the type of shipment, either small parcel (default) or LTL, for that shipment.

  4. Move items into boxes by hovering on any SKU in the Item Quantities section (below) to drag-and-drop them into the boxes
  5. Enter the weight and dimensions of each box in the Boxes section (below). Note: These two values will auto-populate if you are using the case quantity feature and if a product's Case Weight and Case Dimensions are configured on the product's Purchasing tooltab.
  6. When the Amazon Shipments section's Ready column shows a green check, you can either configure the next shipment if you have multiple shipments, or if done, click the blue arrow to move to the last step in the wizard: Shipping the items to Amazon.
