In the Global Logistics solution, you can now stipulate that (1) shipments be delivered directly to an address, (2) that an adult signs for the packages once they arrive, and (3) that a package, due to its size and/or weight, needs special handling.

If you opt to use any of these value-added services, then the appropriate fees are added to the shipping quotes that customers select from during checkout and the necessary information is encoded in the shipping labels during fulfillments. To indicate which of these services you want to use, you can either (1) have Digital River store your selections in the product's SKU Group or (2) define logisticsOptions and pass it in API requests at run-time.

New limit shipping country feature

We're excited to announce new features in our Amazon Pay integration that aim to enhance the checkout experience for you and your customers. With these updates, you can specify shipping preferences directly within the Amazon Pay setup, offering clearer communication and streamlined checkout processes. Below are the details of the newly released features:

  • allowShippingCountries: Specify the countries you want to allow shipping by listing their two-letter country codes. Only addresses associated with these countries will be available as shipping destinations in the Amazon Pay wallet. Note: If a country code appears in both allowShippingCountries and denyShippingCountries, the allow list takes precedence, ensuring the country is available for shipping.

  • denyShippingCountries: List the two-letter country codes of the countries you want to deny shipping. These addresses associated with these countries will not appear as selectable options in the Amazon Pay wallet.

For more detailed information on configuring these new features in your Amazon Pay integration and insights into the broader capabilities of the Amazon Pay element, refer to the Configuring Amazon Pay and Amazon Pay element sections. This resource provides comprehensive guidance on optimizing your checkout experience using the latest features.
