FBA Inbound Shipment Wizard > Tab 1: Shipment Details

Shipment Details tab

Here’s where you configure the initial settings for your FBA inbound shipment.

Tab #1 of the FBA inbound shipment wizard, the shipment details
You can choose the default values of four of these settings to retain them here for all FBA inbound shipments. See how in the two short videos below.
  • Video #1 – Choose Ship To Warehouse (Sellercloud FBA warehouse storing items when Amazon receives shipment):
  • Video #2 – Choose Sellercloud’s Ship From Warehouse and Interim Warehouse, and Box Content method:
  1. Review and/or change your settings as needed.
  2. When done, click the blue arrow to move to the next step in the wizard: Adding products.

The table below describes each of the shipment settings.

FIELD DESCRIPTION
Company If you have multiple companies, choose the company associated with the Amazon account for which you are sending inventory.
Description Defaults to today’s date and time, but you can enter any description.
Ship From Warehouse Sellercloud warehouse from which inventory will ship via an FBA inbound shipment.

Choose the Ship From warehouse for this shipment only, or choose the default for all FBA inbound shipments in Sellercloud’s Default FBA Ship From Warehouse Client Setting (see Video #2, above).

Interim Warehouse Sellercloud warehouse that tracks inventory in transit between the Ship From warehouse and the Ship To warehouse.

Choose the Interim warehouse for this shipment only, or choose the default for all FBA inbound shipments in Sellercloud’s Default FBA Shipment Interim Warehouse Client Setting (see Video #2, above)

Ship To Warehouse Sellercloud warehouse into which an FBA inbound shipment’s inventory will move upon receipt at Amazon’s fulfillment center(s).

Choose the Ship To FBA warehouse for this shipment only, or choose the default for all FBA inbound shipments using the company’s Channel Warehouse FBA setting (see Video #1, above).

Box Content Determines how a shipment’s box contents will be communicated to Amazon.

Choose the method for this shipment only, or choose the default for all FBA inbound shipments in Sellercloud’s Default FBA Shipment Content Source Client Setting (see Video #2, above)

  • FEED – Sellercloud will upload the contents directly to Seller Central, automatically
  • 2-D Barcode – Seller will download and affix 2D barcode labels with box contents
  • None – Seller will download a box contents file and upload the file to Seller Central. Box content information will not be provided to Amazon for this shipment. Seller will incur extra fees from Amazon.
Label Prep Preference Select the party – either Amazon or the seller – who will be responsible for labeling the items. This is only relevant for items that need labels.

Change the setting for this shipment only:

  • Amazon_Label_Only – Amazon will label all eligible products when received at their fulfillment center. Ineligible products will be rejected from the shipment. This service has associated fees.
  • Amazon_Label_Preferred – Amazon will label any products not labeled by the seller. Fees are applied as needed.
  • Seller_Label (default setting) – Merchant will label the products if required. The merchant may incur fees for unlabeled/improperly labeled items if Amazon requires labeling.

Note: The choice you make here may not correlate with the value on the Amazon Shipments tab’s Label Type field. For example, you may choose Seller_Label here, but Amazon may populate the Label Type field with the No_Label value when they preview the shipment. This would happen if they determine that no labels are needed.
