What is DirectShip?

DirectShip is one of the FBP (Fulfilled by Partner) models that sellers can choose based on certain criteria to manage their business operations.


DirectShip Overview

DirectShip is ideal for sellers who sell items that aren't bulky and that don’t require installation. It is a fast back-to-back operations model which requires sellers to prepare orders for fulfillment themselves. They'll have to pack items in the noon packaging and label them, then hand them over to noon for shipping. 

To process DirectShip orders, sellers will use our user-friendly app (only compatible with Android phones and tablets) that will enable them to conveniently scan packages, barcodes, and easily take pictures for quality assurance. They can then track their orders, and access fulfillment reports directly on Seller Lab.
