Does scheduled ship date affect FBA orders?

When I press send order, the pop up window has "scheduled ship date". Since I use FBA MCF, I figure I'd put tomorrow or following date. However I hope that is not to tell amazon FBA to ship the items later. Can someone confirm what is "schedule ship date" is used for?

    Hey Ken@4077F,

    That option allows you to schedule the date when you want ShipStation to submit the fulfillment request to Amazon. In a way, it is telling FBA to ship the items later because you are asking ShipStation to delay the initial fulfillment request.

    Hope that helps clear things up!
