By assigning a default supplier to your products and marking SKUs for automatic dropship, incoming orders can be automatically split into supplier-specific orders and promptly sent via email to your designated default supplier. Learn how to simplify your order fulfillment process with these easy steps.
Here is how it works step-by-step:
- Assign SKUs to be automatically dropshipped by a supplier. See this support article for steps.
- Once orders import:
- Orders containing a mix of a dropshipped products and/or non-dropshipped products will be split into separate orders.
- The split orders with automatically dropshipped products will instantly get emailed to the assigned supplier(s). These orders can be viewed in the Dropshipment Requested filter.
- You can set the Supplier Unit Price to always be included in the dropship requests. See this article to learn more about this.
- The split order with handled in-house products will stay in your Awaiting Fulfillment filter until you ship it yourself.
- Once your supplier confirms the order has shipped with a tracking number, you can update it in Ordoro, so your cart and customer will be notified that the order is on its way.
- Order M-dropship-order is placed for three items. Two are marked as automatically dropshipped, and one is handled in-house.
- Dune DVD – dropshipped by Supplier A
- Krull DVD – dropshipped by Supplier C
- Dark Crystal DVD – handled in-house, i.e., shipped by you
- Ordoro automatically split the order into three new orders.
- Order M-dropship-order-1: emailed to Supplier C for the Krull DVD. Order is in Dropshipment Requested filter.
- Order M-dropship-order-2: emailed to Supplier A for the Dune DVD. Order is in Dropshipment Requested filter.
- Order M-dropship-order-3: remains in the Awaiting Fulfillment filter so you can create a label yourself
Orders -1 and -2 in the Dropshipment Requested filter
Order -3 in the Awaiting Fulfillment filter
