Last Updated on March 24, 2021 by

In this article, we will discuss How to update the handling time on Amazon through the inventory loader file.

The Handling Time is the number of business days between receiving an order for a product and shipping the product. Amazon refers to handling time as “Fulfillment Latency”.

The default handling time that is sent to your Amazon store is 1 – 2 business days. If your handling time is longer than 1 – 2 business days, you can specify handling times in ShippingEasy. The handling time values will be included with inventory updates sent to your Amazon store.

For updating the handling time through  Bulk Update on Amazon

you need to follow the below steps:

Step 1: Log in to Amazon seller central, then go to Inventory and click the Add Products via Upload option.
