If you are delivering through a 3P carrier, then you can choose any of the following carriers listed that are integrated with Amazon systems:
Blue Dart, Fedex, DTDC, Delhivery, Aramex, Xpressbees, Shree Tirupati courier, Safexpress, Spoton, Bombax, DotZot, Wefast, Gojavas, and Nowbikes.

Local Shops orders can be of three types: Priority (Same-Day), Next day (One-Day), Second day (Two-Day) delivery. You can identify these orders by going to Manage Orders page on Seller Central. Every Prime order will have a Prime badge next to it.
You can process Local Shops orders using two methods:
Similar to Self-Ship orders, you will also have Confirm Shipment option for all Local Shops orders. Additionally, you will also have Self Deliver option, if your account is activated to use Amazon Delivery App (mobile application).
Listed below are different features of both methods:
Confirm Shipment: This option must be used if you are using an Amazon integrated carrier for deliveries. While using this option to process orders, you must have a valid tracking number (searchable on carrier’s official website). In case, you choose a non-integrated carrier while ship confirming a Local Shops order, it may impact your Valid Tracking Rate metric.
To understand how Confirm Shipment option works, follow the steps below:

For more information on Self Deliver method of order processing, go to Local Shops - Amazon Delivery App.
All Prime/Guaranteed Delivery orders must be processed (ship confirm/ Self Deliver depending on how you deliver) within the ‘Ship by date’ and delivered within the promised date. Any orders that are not ship confirmed within the ‘Ship by date’ will be auto-cancelled by the midnight of ‘Ship by date’. This will impact your performance metrics and you will be charged a cancellation fee (100% of referral fee).
Amazon generates invoice on behalf of the sellers. You can print the invoice using Print tax invoice option from Manage Orders page or Order Details page. For more information on invoicing and reports, go to Easy Ship invoicing feature .
