Step 2: Choose Your Shipping Preferences

Receiving and returning a Snowball device involves shipping the device back and forth, so it's important that you provide accurate shipping information.

To provide shipping details

  1. On the AWS Snow Family Management Console, in the Provide shipping information section, choose an existing address or add a new address.

    • If you choose Use recent address, the addresses on file are displayed. Carefully choose the address you want from the list.

    • If you choose Add a new address, provide the requested address information. The AWS Snow Family Management Console saves your new shipping information.


      The country that you provide in the address must match the destination country for the device and must be valid for that country.

  2. In the Shipping speed section, choose a shipping speed for the job. This speed shows how quickly the device ships between destinations and doesn't reflect how soon it will arrive after today's date.

    • One-Day Shipping (1 business day)

    • Two-Day Shipping (2 business days)
