Error: Can not create shipment and add items

Amazon requires seller to create a shipment within 48 hours after the item is assigned to a fulfillment center. After 48 hours you can no longer create a new shipment for the item to that fulfillment center. You can add that item to an existing shipment to that fulfillment center.


  1. Try to add test items with multiple quantity until an item is assigned to the same fulfillment center as your pending items.
  2. Create a new shipment to that fulfillment center with your test item only. This will create a new shipment to that fulfillment center.
  3. After the new shipment is created, select all your pending items to the same fulfillment center and add them to this new shipment.
  4. Remove the test item from this shipment.

Best Practice

Always create a new shipment or add to existing shipment for the pending items before you exit the program.
