Option to send only FBA Available inventory to Store

Hello, We have some items that we only ship out via Amazon MCF for our direct to consumer orders, but still keep some stock on hand for other larger orders. So we would like to be able to choose to send only the FBA available stock to our stores. Currently we can only choose between Stock on hand or Stock on hand plus Amazon FBA inventory. We need to be able to choose only Amazon FBA stock to be sent to the store. And this is very related to a previous feature request: htt...

Inventory of Bundled Products

I still don't see the an inventory count when I click on a bundled product:   October 25, 2019 10:18  Share Completed Hello! This is request for the feature to go back to where it was. It appears to have changed recently.  On the bundled product detail page, it used to show the inventory status for each of the individual products that made up that bundle. Made it easy to see which item was the limiting factor. Now I have to click on each item to see what it's inventory...

Duplicate Purchase Order Function

I would like to be able to duplicate purchase orders.  Every month I order pretty much the same items from the same suppliers.  Rather than creating a new PO from scratch each time, it would be nice if I could simply duplicate my previous order.

New Buttons for the Item Screen

Two Suggestions: I would like the ability to duplicate an inventory item. This would be helpful when creating a series of nearly identical SKUs, with minor variations. I'm typically adding 1-3 SKUs at a time, and it's just faster to do this through the web interface than through a spreadsheet. On the item screen, it would be helpful to have arrow buttons that allow me to move backward and forward through a captured set.  For instance, if I search for items with a specific ...

Hidden Products in Volusion

I have two Volusion stores and came to rely on Shipping Easy's inventory synchronization functionality. This functionality worked beautifully from when it was introduced in August 2016 until sometime in late 2018, when for some reason all of my products were mysteriously delinked.  After much trouble shooting, I learned that now Shipping Easy no longer supports linking of "hidden products". This is a very big problem for me and any Volusion merchant with configured product...

Multiple Variants in Inventory Control Grid - Very Frustrating!

I have parent/main products with multiple options - as many as 100 in some cases. When I search for a variants SKU in the Shipping Easy inventory grid, I get the main product and then a dropdown for "Multiple Variants". That's fine, but the problem is the sub-grid for the variants only includes 10 variants that can be easily accessed and whose inventory can be quickly updated. When you hit "View All," the grid disappears and you get a list of each variant SKU. To update in...

Enable Product Name Overwrite by Store

Currently I can only overwrite product names at the SKU level so it affects the way it shows for all stores.  This removes the pre-order information (Pre-Order Now app)  from Shopify stores which causes many issues internally and with customers.  I need to be able to select through the Store settings whether I want to overwrite product names with the product catalog names for that store only. This is a critical feature for us, and I'm sure useful to other customers as well.

Bundle SKUs need to be allowed to have Suppliers

I will be providing good examples as to why my pitch for Bundled SKUs needing to be allowed to have their own Suppliers. The other logical fix is to implement a way for a product that are ordered from suppliers as packs of (quantity #). And be able to split those packs for sale as smaller quantities. I'll give you an examples below:If I was a subscription snackbox company. And my vendors only sell their snacks in quantities of say 100 in one supplier SKU. But I want to bre...

Expand Keyword Search Options on the PO page

Unit Value change to accommodate more decimal spaces

Just encountered a minor problem while making a PO and inputting in the Unit Value. We order things in large bulk quantity sometimes and our vendors would value large quantities in more than two decimal spaces. For example: $6.341 per unit. Shipping easy requires you to round up or down. But if I am ordering hundreds or thousands of units of a product, the total cost would be inaccurate.

Increase the preview to include all variants instead of first 10; pull up specific variants when exact sku is typed in

If I only have one or a few SKUs that I need to update the inventory count, say I come across a couple of defective items, it is too cumbersome to go through uploading the whole csv file.  So I'd go to Product Catalog and search for the product and then click on the arrow to expand to preview my variants.  It only shows 10 variants.  Most of my products have more than 10 variants; some even have over 60 variants.  *If* the variant that I'd like to update is listed within t...

Update suggestions for Create PO

I'd like to suggest the following changes to the current Create PO process based on my brief usage: 1. Add new PO lines at the top of the listing rather than the bottom.  This will prevent needless scrolling for POs that have more than just a few lines.  Or if easier, just move the SKU, Name input box to an area below the line listing. 2. The ability to add new part numbers as part of the PO creation process.  Seems like a simple change and again, would prevent needless ju...

Negative number inventory push

Hi, I would like to request a very important needed feature.    I would like for shippingEasy to be able to push over negative numbers of inventory to the stores ‘send stock back to store’. The reason for this is that we have a back order feature on our site. So the inventory from shippingEasy doesn’t properly push the correct amount of inventory to my Shopify store.

Have Case Pack quantity stored per SKU for easier ordering

We would like a way to save a case pack quantity to each SKU. That way on items that the supplier dictates the case pack size we can know when creating the PO how many have to be ordered to keep a full case pack. The current method of typing in the case pack value each time on a PO would be useful if we have to tell the supplier how to pack them, but more often for us it is the supplier (or just the product size) that dictates how big a case pack is. It would be nice to be...

Show items not linked to a Store or Marketplace?

Is there a way, currently, without clicking into each item one by one, to show which items are not listed to a particular marketplace or any marketplace at all? Ecomdash did this well when I was with them. On your inventory page, it had a little icon for each of your linked stores. For example, I'd have two eBay stores, one Etsy, one Amazon. If an item was listed on one of the eBay stores and Amazon, you'd see the eBay icon and Amazon icon next to the item, and if you clic...

Add Americommerce as a Supported Store Platform for Importing Product Data

Currently, the only way to import product data from an Americommerce Store Platform is to export data into a CSV file, then uploading it. It looks easier when using a supported store platform. Hence, this request.

Enable low stock cutoff for items that are dropshipped via Amazon MCF in a shipping rule

We have some items that we ship out via Amazon MCF, we have shipping rules set up to automatically do this which is nice.  The issue is that the only option for sending our inventory levels to our stores are either 'FBA + our stock' or only 'our stock'. So for these items that we ship out via MCF, sometimes we have run out of stock in Amazon FBA and need to ship it out via our warehouse. For these instances we want our shipping rule to be able to tell when the Amazon FBA i...

Have FBA inventory level sent to stores determined by product (or product tag) instead of store-wide

We have certain items that make sense for us to warehouse in Amazon FBA warehouses and have Amazon do the fulfillment for those orders instead of warehousing at our location and shipping ourselves. But not all products make sense to do that. What we need is to be able to select which products (via a product tag or something like that) have the FBA stock sent out to our stores instead of only being able to select having FBA inventory included for sending to stores at the st...

Warehouse Bins

We'd like the Warehouse Bins to be split into two fields. One for aisle, and one for bin. That way, we can sort by aisle when we need to do our inventory counts.

Fractional Quantities

We buy in bulk and break into smaller packs here at our packing center. We would love to be able to use fractional quantities to split up these bulk packs. As a fictional example, we buy six packs of Cokes as a unit from our supplier, but we'd like to sell just 1 can of Coke or 2, or 3 cans.

Provide a notification when a new sku is added from an incoming order

We're getting new sku's in ShippingEasy added based on glitches with incoming orders from 3rd party marketplaces like Amazon. It would be great to have a notification when these are added to our inventory so we can take care of before things get out of hand.

Available Stock display during Purchase Order Creation

It would be VERY helpful to have the Available Stock column display when creating a PO. Currently you need to have two screens open to see what the Available Stock is for an item.

Purchase Order Organization

I would love to be able to organize the items in my purchase order by dragging and dropping. I know products with the same name stick together, but since our sizing isn't alphabetical it makes it confusing for our vendors and for us when checking in orders etc.

As the negative sign "-" can be easily missed when viewing inventory information It would be very helpful if negative numbers could show in red. If that is not possible put in parenthesis e"(-1)" or "(1)".
