Assign SKUs to shipping templates

In Shipping settings, you can assign sets of SKUs to different shipping templates. There are two ways to assign SKUs, depending on how many changes you're making:

Use the Seller Central Manage Inventory page for up to 50 changes at a time:

In Manage Inventory, the shipping template name displays in the Price column for each SKU, underneath the price.

Note: The shipping price will not display if the SKU is out of stock.

  1. Select one or more of the SKUs that you want to update.
  2. Click Actions in the top-left corner.
  3. Select Change shipping template.

Use feeds for more than 50 changes:

  • Excel feed: The Inventory Loader has a column called merchant_shipping_group_name. Use this feed to assign SKUs to shipping templates.

Check the shipping template assigned to a SKU

You can check which SKUs are assigned to which shipping templates in one of two ways:

From Manage Inventory:

  • In Manage Inventory, the shipping template name is displayed in the Price column for each SKU, underneath the price.
  • Choose a SKU and click Edit, then scroll down to find the Shipping template assigned to it.
    Note: The shipping template field is shown only if the ASIN is set to “fulfilled by merchant”.

From the Active Listings Report:

  • Download the Active Listings Report from Inventory Reports, and open the file in Excel (or copy paste from Notepad into Excel). Under the merchant-shipping-group column, you will see the assigned SKUs to each template.
