Amazon Multi-Channel Fulfillment (MCF) fulfills orders for your sales channels at the same delivery speed as Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). For more information, go to Multi-channel fulfillment, our program page.
Delivery times are calculated from the time an order ships from our fulfillment center to when it is delivered to the buyer:
Exporting orders to buyers outside of the EU is currently not available.
Multi-Channel Fulfillment (MCF) fulfills orders outside of Amazon, including your own website. You can create MCF orders through our quick order form, bulk order upload, or API integrations with providers such as Shopify, ChannelAdvisor, ShipStation, and WooCommerce.
A quick order form allows you to place a single ship or hold order against available FBA inventory by entering your customer's delivery address, items, and delivery speed. Multi-Channel Fulfillment bulk orders allows users to create and cancel multiple orders at once by uploading a completed template.
If you select "place order," you will create a “ship” order that will plan and ship within two business days for Standard speed and next business day for Expedited and Priority speeds. Creating a hold order will plan an order, reserving your inventory. The order must be activated on Multi-Channel Fulfillment order details page before the expected ship date to ship and meet the expected delivery date. If the order is activated after the expected ship date, the order will likely be delivered at a later date and may not update the expected delivery date. If the hold order is not activated within two weeks, the order will be cancelled.
You can cancel any MCF order for up to five minutes after placing the order by clicking the "Cancel" button in the Order details page.
If you would like to cancel an order after the first five minutes have passed, contact us. We will try to cancel it for you but can't guarantee successful cancellation.
You are not charged for MCF orders that are successfully canceled before shipping. If some items in an order have shipped, charges for the shipped items apply.
MCF charges fulfillment fees for domestic orders.
You are eligible for reimbursements on your MCF orders if we determine that they have been lost or damaged. Check the status of your existing reimbursements on the Amazon Fulfilled Inventory report or the Payments report.
You are ineligible for reimbursements if any of the following applies:
If your order is not delivered within seven days after the estimated delivery date, you are eligible to file for lost reimbursement by contacting Selling Partner Support. Orders that are marked as delivered by the carrier are not eligible for reimbursement.
The reimbursement amount is calculated according to the FBA lost and damaged inventory reimbursement policy. Amazon reimburses you, not the buyer. It is your responsibility to resolve the issue with the buyer.
If your order is damaged in transit to the buyer, you are eligible to file for damaged reimbursement by contacting Selling Partner Support. To receive a reimbursement, you must provide photographic proof of the damaged item or items.
MCF supports returns to Amazon fulfillment centers. You can generate a return merchandise authorization (RMA) and track the status of a return by checking your Order details page under Orders. For FBA customer returns, you can track the status in the Return reports. Go to MCF program for more details.
You can change the name and text on your packing slip in Multi-Channel Fulfillment settings.
