ConfirmPreorder

Confirms a shipment for pre-order.

Description

The ConfirmPreorder operation confirms a shipment for pre-order. Call this operation after calling the GetPreorderInfo operation to get the NeedByDate value and other pre-order information about the shipment. To get a list of shipments that are confirmed for pre-order, call the ListInboundShipments operation and sort the result set by the ConfirmedNeedByDate response element.

After a shipment is confirmed for pre-order, the pre-order Buy Box displays for all of the items in the shipment with release dates on or after the date in the ConfirmedFulfillableDate response element. A shipment that is confirmed for pre-order must arrive at an Amazon fulfillment center by the date in the ConfirmedNeedByDate response element to avoid promise breaks.

Note: After a shipment is confirmed for pre-order, items in the shipment with release dates on or after the date returned in the ConfirmedFulfillableDate response element are subject to the following restrictions:
