Setting Handling Time for Media items

Blog Post created by kwallace on Apr 20, 2018

In version 5.9, Monsoon added the ability to set a unique handling time for items within the Books, Music, VHS Videos, and DVDs categories for your Amazon Home Market. This can be done by editing the value of the Lead Time to Ship (In Days) field for any given SKU on the My Inventory tab.


The Lead Time to Ship field can be found below the Jacket Condition field for the Book category, and below the Keywords field for the other media categories.


This is an item-level setting, but specifying a handling time for every item is not a requirement. If the value is left blank, then the default will be used. If you wish to change your handling time for all items, you can do so with an inventory import.


Please note that entering a value in this field will also override the eBay Handling time that you have set in your eBay Shipping settings in Monsoon. So if you do enter a handling time at the item level, be sure it matches your eBay Handling time for that item. This may require creating additional eBay shipping rules if items in your inventory have different handling times.

This setting will only impact handling time on Amazon and eBay.
