Amazon Shipping FAQs

Can I use Amazon Shipping to ship Amazon orders placed via Amazon Marketplace?

Yes, but even though the order was created in the Amazon Marketplace, Starshipit will treat it as if it was created by an external platform (outside of Amazon).

Note: When the order is treated as coming from an external platform, the services and shipping speed to ensure the delivery promises offered by Amazon Shipping are slightly different, and you may not be entitled to the BuyShipping benefits offered by Amazon.

Can I use Amazon Shipping to ship international orders?

Currently, the integration only supports UK domestic Shipments (UK to UK).

Can I send multiple packages in one shipment?

This is not currently supported.

Does Amazon Shipping offer additional services such as Signature required or handling dangerous goods?

This is not currently supported.
