Update to FedEx shipping methods on Amazon Buy Shipping

Announcement reposted from Amazon United States:

We’ve updated two FedEx shipping methods on Amazon Buy Shipping. FedEx Ground Economy, formerly FedEx SmartPost, is now available and FedEx One Rate is more easily accessible.

FedEx Ground Economy is a shipping option for small and medium businesses to ship low-weight packages to residential addresses. Currently, FedEx Ground Economy is only for non-linked accounts and offers:

  • Delivery of packages in 2 to 7 business days
  • Domestic deliveries in the US with full residential shipping
  • Deliveries 7 days a week (Sunday residential coverage for nearly 80% of the US)
  • Shipment of packages 1 to 70 lb and up to 130 inches (length plus girth)
  • Twenty-four hour shipment visibility with FedEx tracking

While FedEx One Rate has already been available on Amazon Buy Shipping, it’s more accessible now. As long as your package dimensions are within the One Rate package type range, One Rate shipping options will be available to you for predictable shipping costs that don’t require calculating.

With FedEx One Rate, you can:

  • Select a package size from one of the flat rate boxes, envelopes, packs, and tubes offered by FedEx, or bring your own box.
  • Provide the dimensions of your box and we’ll calculate the volume into a One Rate package type (small, medium, large, or extra-large). Packages must be under 50 lb and envelopes must be under 10 lb.
  • Use with Amazon protection to be refunded for claims due to delivery issues when you ship on time.

You can now buy shipping labels for FedEx Ground Economy and One Rate on Amazon Buy Shipping through Seller Central, Shipping API V2, or certain multichannel shipping integrators.
