General Address Tips

General address tips

Providing error-free "Ship From" addresses will avoid unnecessary delays and get your inventory into the right fulfilment centre. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  1. Leave fields blank if they don't apply to your shipping or billing address. Do not enter "N/A," "Not applicable," "None," "Same," and so on.
  2. Enter information in the appropriate fields. For example, do not enter city and province information in the "Address Line 2" field; use the provided city and province fields instead.
  3. Avoid using accent marks or non-English characters. Our systems cannot process Chinese characters, Cyrillic letters, and so on, and entering these into any of the address fields may delay receipt of your shipment to Amazon.
  4. Do not enter shipping or delivery instructions in any of the address fields.
  5. Having trouble getting your address to fit on Address Lines 1 and 2? Here are some common abbreviations that might help:
