Frequently Asked Questions
Is this the same method you’d use for sending items with a coupon?
No, for coupons and marketing purposes you would set up a campaign. Coupons also take 4 hours before you can use them. Click here for more information on that
What if I want to send it to another country?
As of March 2020, this is now possible with the addition of steps 9 - 12
When would you use this method?
If you need to inspect your product again - maybe you've seen a sudden spike in returns marked “damaged” and want to make sure nothing happens in freight. Again as mentioned, you might also want to send this to a friend, photographer, or marketer.
Is this when you do a quality inspection of your Amazon?
No! You will already have inspected your product and can get a trusted shipping agent to do this for future orders if you are replenishing often
