How to: Allocate Stock to my unshipped orders

Created:   |   Updated:

ShippingEasy's Inventory Management allows you to allocate stock to your orders. Learn more about Inventory Management.

Stock is always allocated to your oldest orders first. By allocating stock to your unshipped orders you can prioritize which orders are shipped out. You can also 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.

NOTE: in order to allocate stock, you must have the Inventory add-on. Learn more.
