Some of our customers have already received emails with red-hot news from Amazon earlier this week:
In addition to DPD, Hermes and now DHL can be selected by sellers for the Prime shipping method. Amazon is also working on a solution with its own logistics fleet for the future.
Below you will find a brief summary of the most important information from Seller Central relating to the service requirements of DHL Paket and Hermes. You can find the framework conditions for DPD here.
To use Prime by Seller with DHL, DHL requires the following conditions to be met:
Hermes offers daily pickup only to sales partners who ship at least 1,500 Prime packages per month . Further conditions are:
If you send at least 2,500 Hermes Prime parcels in one month, you will receive a volume discount for all your Hermes Prime labels purchased via Buy shipping fee in the following month. Your eligibility for a discount in the following month will be reviewed monthly. In the first month of participation in the Prime program by sellers, sellers will be charged the discounted rate.
Before you become eligible for Prime by Seller, you must first prove it during a trial period. Get more info here.
However, we will be happy to help you assess which Prime shipping method is right for you. Please contact us at email@example.com without obligation.
