How to: Allocate Stock to my unshipped orders

Created:   |   Updated:

ShippingEasy's Inventory Management allows you to allocate stock to your oldest orders first. By allocating stock to your unshipped orders you can prioritize which orders are shipped out, and ensure that you only print a shipping label for orders with enough inventory to fulfill all items in the order. Learn more about Stock Allocation.

How to: Allocate Stock on the ORDERS page

  1. From the blue navigation menu, click the ORDERS tab.

    NOTE: An order is either fully allocated or it is not. You cannot partially allocate stock to an order. An order will only be marked as Allocated if all items in the order have enough inventory to ship.
