I've only just noticed az's delivery DATES being provided...

Amazon Seller Topics
I'm thinking this will/should be to our (Canadians) advantage. Right?

Though I'm not sure how some 'foreigners' seem to have gotten around it, by setting their shipping to domestic only, excluding 'shipped from' in their settings; hence matching the canadians dates...

How long has this new feature been there?

Thanks.

If you look at any catalogue page, on the right, it now shows "delivery dates". I'm pretty sure those were not always there.

So for example, as of today, one shows:
* Arrives between November 23-30.
* Ships from NY, United States.

While for Canadians, it shows:

* Arrives between Nov. 18 - Dec. 3.
* Ships from ON, Canada.

And:
* Arrives between December 8-21.
* Ships from United Kingdom.


Is this in Books? I think I've noticed that in the past but never thought anything about it.


yes, in books. see here, for example, http://www.amazon.ca/gp/offer-listing/1614482578/ref=tmm_pap_used_olp_sr?ie=UTF8&condition=used&qid=&sr=

Actually, it must be across the board. I only sell a few dvds/videos...and those show the delivery dates as well.

I'm not seeing any delivery dates on any catalogue detail page (viewing from a desktop computer). As I buyer do get that info in my confirmation email, and as a seller it is on the order detail page.

Looked at the ASIN link you provided and do not see delivery dates.
Just the usual:

  • In Stock.
  • Ships from ON, Canada.
  • Expedited shipping available.
  • Domestic shipping rates and return policy.

It could be amazon doing selected beta testing again.

Yes, I've noticed this since last week. I thought it had to do with Holiday Shipping. Makes the buyer know the date it will be delivered if it's for a holiday gift.


Oh good, I'm not alone!

The only issue I can think of, is the (Canadian dates), should be shorter than the 6 business days amazon is stating. Not to mention, most of my sales are to Ontario and Quebec - which usually takes 2 days. HOWEVER, in that case, we may see an increase in 'expedited' orders ;) .

Btw, does this mean buyers are not seeing what we are??

Thanks.


The bad part is the Canadian seller delivery window is longer than for international sellers. I thought there was supposed to be only one delivery window for media because we cannot change it.

How are international sellers able to have shorter windows?


To be specific, the end date for Canadian sellers is 3 days longer longer than american sellers, but the first delivery-date is 5 days sooner.

But I've also noticed that ALL of the the International sellers, who have the shorter end date, do not show 'ships from'. So, somehow, they've manipulated the shipping details...I think.
