Amazon Changes “Sold, Ship Now” Email Notifications Sent to Sellers

Posted on June 29, 2010. Filed under: Amazon | Tags: , , , |

Amazon will make changes to the “Sold, Ship Now” email notifications on July 6, 2010.  The “Sold, Ship Now” emails are the communications Amazon uses to alert sellers to new orders.   While the email notifications will include the same order details and will be organized in the same general way, Amazon is adding more order-processing and payment information to the email notification.  The new Email Notifications will appear as follows (information comes from the Amazon website):

Sellers should have sufficient inventory on hand to fulfill all orders on time. However, in those rare cases when ordered items are not available, please cancel the order promptly. After you cancel the order, Amazon will send the buyer an order cancellation e-mail.

You can cancel orders easily in Manage Orders:

1. From the Orders tab in Seller Central, click “Manage Orders” to find the order you want to cancel.

For information on cancelling orders using a feed, search on “cancel multiple orders” in Seller Central Help.

Note that if you have already confirmed shipment of the order, you will no longer be able to cancel it. In that case, you would issue a refund and work with the buyer to arrange a return. For information about refunds, search on “refund orders” in Seller Central Help.

This transaction will be posted to your Marketplace Payments account after you confirm shipment. Funds in your Marketplace Payments account are automatically disbursed to your bank account every 14 days.

Seems very clear and self explanatory. I am wondering what font size you get? PayPal in the last few months has started using about a 3pt font in their notifications. Even my accountant complained.
