Send to Amazon will replace the send/replenish workflow for API-created shipments

What is changing?

Starting March 1, 2023, Send to Amazon will replace the send/replenish inventory workflow for API-created shipments for all sellers.

Shipments that have been created, viewed, or edited using Send to Amazon cannot be viewed or edited via API. This includes shipments that have been created or edited via API in the past.
