If you fulfill orders from multiple warehouses, as default, GeekSeller will select for you a warehouse with the highest amount of available quantities. However, there are situations in which you may want to force GeekSeller to prioritize some warehouses. For example, you may want to first try to fulfill an order using your 3PL company, before you fulfill it from your own warehouse. Another example: you may want to fulfill orders using 3PL company only for a single item order, but ship it yourself if more than 1 item is ordered. You can achieve all of this with GeekSeller automation rules.
Creating a general rule of priorities for all orders
- Go to Master Panel > Settings > Automation Rules.
- Create a new rule, selecting Criteria: For all orders (so that it applies for all incoming orders) and Task: Set Warehouses Priority
- Click Save.
Automation rule for Walmart 2-day orders
- An example below shows how you can prioritize a Deliverr warehouse for Walmart orders with the marketplace requested method being Express.
- We suggest also to create another rule that will be placed just above this one, which specifies priorities for all orders. For example, if you want for other orders the “Self” warehouse being the default warehouse, you will create this rule.
- And you will keep the general rule first, then the rule for Walmart orders. This is because the system will first try to fit the general rule, then try to overwrite it with the next one if possible.
Example of a rule that selects Self warehouse when an order has more than 1 product
There are a few important information to keep in mind:
- You can drag and drop warehouses to select their priority. If a new warehouse is added, later on, it will automatically be placed at the end of the priority list.
- There are a few types of quantity rules, in most cases you want “warehouse” type to be on top.|
- Rules are executed from the top to the bottom. This means, one rule can overwrite another if it is executed later in the queue.
