The Optimized Seller-set Transit (OST) feature helps display more accurate delivery times to customers for seller fulfilled standard shipping orders with just a single click. This feature uses historical carrier shipping data to dynamically adjust your transit times based on your default warehouse location and the customer location. This allows you to provide more accurate estimated delivery times to customers, while using your carrier of choice.
To enable the OST feature, follow these steps:
Customers love faster deliveries and are more likely to purchase products that have faster estimated delivery times. Products with faster estimated delivery times are also more likely to be the Featured Offers on product detail pages. By enabling the OST feature in your shipping templates, you will have an opportunity to provide more accurate (and as a result, faster) delivery times to customers.
To maintain a great customer experience, we'll monitor your delivery performance to ensure you remain eligible for the OST feature.
