GetFulfillmentPreview

Returns a list of fulfillment order previews based on shipping criteria that you specify.

Description

The GetFulfillmentPreview operation returns a list of fulfillment order previews based on shipping criteria that you specify. Each fulfillment order preview contains the estimated shipping weight and the estimated shipping fees for the potential fulfillment order, as well as ship dates, arrival dates, and estimated shipping weights for individual shipments within the potential fulfillment order. In Japan, the GetFulfillmentPreview operation optionally returns delivery windows for scheduling Multi-Channel Fulfillment orders. This operation also provides information about unfulfillable items in fulfillment order previews.

Note: If an inbound shipment has a status of WORKING or SHIPPED, Amazon considers the items in that inbound shipment to be fulfillable. This means that the GetFulfillmentPreview operation can return weight and shipping fee estimates for fulfillable items that have not yet arrived at an Amazon fulfillment center. For this reason weight and shipping fee estimates for items in inbound shipments with a status of WORKING or SHIPPED will often be incorrect.

Availability

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

Throttling

The GetFulfillmentPreview operation has a maximum request quota of 30 and a restore rate of two requests every second. For definitions of throttling terminology and for a complete explanation of throttling, see Throttling: Limits to how often you can submit requests in the Amazon MWS Developer Guide.
