Please, keep in mind that your shipments will be, by default, split between multiple fulfilment centres. In this way, the delivery times are cut-off, which is of paramount importance for the Amazon Prime deliveries. That is why the sellers can’t choose a preferred Amazon fulfilment centre location to store their goods.
