Is there any integration with Amazon Logistics/Shipping so I can buy/get my shipping labels from them for my Seller Fulfilled Prime or Premium orders?
I can see that in the Features section there is a Carrier Integration with Amazon Shipping to import labels - but I was wandering if I can get PP to buy the labels from Amazon? (A little like an import of orders like I do for Royal Mail C&D)
Or do I have to buy the labels in Amazon manually then use Shipping Rules to disregard these orders before sending the remaining orders to Royal Mail C&D?
We are looking at integrating with Amazon Shipping, but things have been a bit hectic here, so we haven't finished it.
We'll have a chat about it tomorrow and see wherewe are, then get back to you.
In the mean time, yes the best way is to use shipping rules to exclude any you ship with Amazon shipping. When you come to print, from Amazon, you can import that PDF into Packing Partner.
When you come to do this can I suggest you import or use the ZPL file from Amazon (direct integration with the Zebra thermal printer).
The PDF files supplied by Amazon is next to useless as the quality is so bad that when printed I cannot read the return address and the codes often do not scan.
The quality of the labels we get, should be OK.
Is there any info yet on having PP directly integrated with Amazon Buy Shipping?
Amazon has a new VTR metric. If I buy my Royal Mail 24/48 labels using Amazon Buy Shipping then the tracking code is automatically deemed valid. If I buy the same labels through RM Click & Drop then only if the parcel is scanned on delivery (although all should be, I'm finding about 10% are not) is the tracking deemed valid.
As Amazon expect a VTR of 95%, this means I will now need to buy the labels through Amazon to satisfy the metric.
Although I can separate these out with filters (like I currently do for my Prime orders) it would be far more useful to have PP do it for me. Currently if I get 2 separate Prime orders in Amazon from same customer I have to buy 2 labels using their system, whereas with PP it would have combined the orders for me.
We are working on that right now. We should have been able to release a post and update today, but there have been a few issues along the way.
If all goes well from here, I'm hoping to update before tomorrow morning.
