ConfirmTransportRequest

Confirms that you accept the Amazon-partnered shipping estimate and you request that the Amazon-partnered carrier ship your inbound shipment.

Description

The ConfirmTransportRequest operation confirms that you accept the Amazon-partnered shipping estimate, agree to allow Amazon to charge your account for the shipping cost, and request that the Amazon-partnered carrier ship your inbound shipment. Prior to calling the ConfirmTransportRequest operation, you should call the GetTransportContent operation to get the Amazon-partnered shipping estimate (indicated by the PartneredEstimate response element.) For more information, see Using an Amazon-partnered carrier for your inbound shipment in the MWS for FBA Sellers guide.

Important: After confirming the transportation request, if you decide that you do not want the Amazon-partnered carrier to ship your inbound shipment, you can call the VoidTransportRequest operation to cancel the transportation request. Note that for a Small Parcel shipment, you have 24 hours after confirming a transportation request to void the transportation request. For a Less Than Truckload/Full Truckload (LTL/FTL) shipment, you have one hour after confirming a transportation request to void it. After the grace period has expired your account will be charged for the shipping cost.
Note:
  • Only sellers in the Amazon European marketplaces (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom) and in the United States can use an Amazon-partnered carrier when creating inbound shipments using Amazon Marketplace Web Service (Amazon MWS). Calling this operation in other marketplaces returns an error.
  • In the Amazon European marketplaces, before using an Amazon-partnered carrier for an inbound shipment, you must first review and accept the terms and conditions of the carrier and the terms and conditions of Amazon's Partnered Carrier Program. You can do this on Seller Central. If you attempt to use Amazon Marketplace Web Service (Amazon MWS) to create an inbound shipment using an Amazon-partnered carrier before accepting these terms and conditions, the service returns an error.

Availability

This operation is available in all marketplaces except Brazil and China.
