Amazon.com will not require tracking from UK sellers

No primary category set

A few weeks ago we published new from Amazon.com that they would require sellers to send 95% of their shipments with tracking from February 2016.

We’ve had some good news come via Royal Mail who say that they have have spoken and confirmed with Amazon that this does not apply to UK sellers sending items within the UK or Internationally.

It only applies to Amazon marketplace sellers in the US, the changes do not apply to UK-based Amazon sellers that are listed on Amazon.com US site or selling items to buyers in the US. Senders can continue to use Royal Mail International Untracked services to send items to Amazon buyers in the US.

Amazon will apparently be sending a further message to their sellers in due course to advise them of this and to remove any concern.

Good news all round, although if you are looking for low cost tracked shipments to the US, the initial news did surface the availability of services such as etail-USA which does look a superb offering.

  1. Hi Chris
    This is an Amazon related message but it is in the “Ebay News” section.
    Should it not be in the Amazon section?

  2. As a UK seller that sells on both amazon.co.uk and amazon.com, does it still mean my amazon.com sales need to be sent tracked?
    Reads like it does…
