Amazon has a Handling Time Setting where you are able to set the number of business days between receiving the Amazon order and actually Shipping the order (delivery times). In other words, this shows your customers how long it takes to have your order shipped from the time of receiving the order. Delivery times are composed of handling time (the time you have to handover packages to the carrier) and transit times (the shipping speed for your order). Generally, customers are more likely to purchase products that have a faster-estimated delivery time/dates at checkout.
Now, within the Amazon App Settings of QuickBooks Commerce, you are able to directly set the Handling Time (within QuickBooks Commerce), which will then sync over to Amazon along with other updates.
If the Handling Time setting hasn’t been configured, the default value on Amazon is one to two business days.
How does this work on Amazon? For example: If you have a handling of 1 day set, orders for these products will be required to ship within 1 business day.
As mentioned above, Handling Time is in business days which means weekends are excluded. For example, an order you receive on Friday with a 1 day handling time is expected to ship on Monday.
