Amazon Logistics now mandatory for Seller Fulfilled Prime sellers

According to a recent blog post from XSellco, Amazon is muscling in even further to fulfilment. This time by making Amazon Logistics a mandatory option for sellers using Seller Fulfilled Prime (SFP). You can read the blog post in question here.

There are also changes in Germany. Here’s what XSellco say: “Amazon has added itself as a mandatory carrier on Seller-Fulfilled Prime (SFP) – making Amazon Logistics the only option for UK sellers. It has also made parcel delivery company DPD the mandatory carrier for SFP in Amazon Germany.”

And as they also note: “Amazon is not yet covering all UK postal codes, meaning sellers will still have multiple options for some destinations.”
