Before reading how Deliverr helps sellers pass the SFP trial, head over to our intro to Amazon SFP if you are not familiar with the program.
How does Deliverr complete the SFP trial for sellers?
Simply put, Deliverr completes the SFP trial by fulfilling trial orders per Amazon's requirements (see above). However, since trial orders do not have the Prime badge, buyers have the choice of selecting their shipping speed. Buyers can choose from the following:
- Free Standard Shipping. Amazon requires this for trial orders for all buyers in continental 48 states + DC.
- 2-day Shipping. Deliverr follows Amazon's recommended 2-day shipping cost, which is $10.99 + 0.99 / lb. If desired, sellers can charge a different 2-day cost, but must do so across the 12 shipping templates Deliverr creates in their account. This 2-day shipping cost covers all customers during the trial, but will only apply for non-prime customers after the trial (since Prime customers get free 2-day shipping).
Once Deliverr has successfully fulfilled the required SFP trial orders (a minimum of 50 orders), Amazon will automatically apply Prime badges to the seller's Merchant Fulfilled listings. At that point, all Amazon Prime members will see the Prime badge on the seller's merchant fulfilled listings, and when they purchase, will receive free 2-day shipping, which Deliverr will fulfill.
Importantly, if a SKU has inventory in Deliverr and a listing in Amazon, then Deliverr will assume that the seller wants that SKU activated for Seller Fulfilled Prime. Said another way, all SKUs with inventory in Deliverr are enabled for SFP. If a seller does not want Deliverr fulfilling a SKU as SFP, then the seller must follow this process.
