Modify handling time

Amazon provides the estimated delivery time to buyers on the offer listing and checkout pages. We base this estimate on the time between when the buyer places an order until the delivery reaches the buyer's address.

Total Delivery Time = Handling Time + Transit Time (+ any holiday)

Handling time: The elapsed time between when the buyer places the order until you hand the order over to your carrier.

There are two ways you can modify the handling time:

  • You can use the Add a Product tool or select Edit on the Manage Inventory page:
    • Enter the number of days you need to prepare the product for shipment in the Handling Time field.
      Note: You can view your default Handling Time in your Shipping Settings, under General Shipping Settings.
  • Using the Price and Quantity Update:
    • Enter the number of days you need to prepare the product for shipment in the lead-time-to-ship column on the Price Template tab.

Transit time: The time between when you hand the order over to your carrier until its delivery to the buyer’s address. You can modify the transit times for your SKUs by editing your shipping templates. To learn more, see Create, edit, or delete shipping templates.
