Scheduled Delivery

A scheduled delivery shipping method is available for Multi-Channel Fulfillment orders in Japan. The scheduled delivery shipping method enables you to choose a delivery window within which your fulfillment order will be delivered.

To schedule a Multi-Channel Fulfillment order

  1. Call the GetFulfillmentPreview operation, specifying the following:
    • ShippingSpeedCategories = ScheduledDelivery
    • IncludeDeliveryWindows = true

    A range of DeliveryWindow response elements are returned, each containing a StartDateTime and an EndDateTime response element.

  2. Determine which DeliveryWindow response element accurately delimits the time range in which the fulfillment order should be delivered.
  3. Call the CreateFulfillmentOrder operation, specifying the following:
    • ShippingSpeedCategory = ScheduledDelivery
    • The StartDateTime and EndDateTime values contained in the DeliveryWindow response element from the previous step.
    Important:
    • The StartDateTime and EndDateTime values included with a call to the CreateFulfillmentOrder operation must be specified exactly as they were returned by the GetFulfillmentPreview operation. If you specify StartDateTime and EndDateTime values that were not returned by the GetFulfillmentPreview operation, the service returns an error.
    • It is possible that delivery windows that are available when you call the GetFulfillmentPreview operation will no longer be available when you later call the CreateFulfillmentOrder operation. If this happens the service returns an error. In this case you will need to start again from step 1.
