Giving buyers more insight into Checkout orders

Friday, September 07, 2007

One of the highest goals of our seller team is to offer store partners the flexibility and tools they need to serve their customers. Starting this week, merchants based in the U.S. will have greater flexibility in communicating order fulfillment status to buyers. New API commands will enable you to ship and assign tracking numbers to individual items or groups of items. You can also mark individual items as back-ordered, returned, or canceled. Together, these capabilities give your buyers greater visibility into the status of their orders. For more details, check out the Order Processing API section in the Developer's Guide. Support for merchants based in the UK is coming soon, too.
