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