If you have multiple warehouses, it’s important to setup your default fulfilment location so that you can ship from the location that’s closest to your customer. To begin with, we need to set the zones we want to associate with each warehouse so we know where to fulfil from.
Secondly, we want to set the fulfilment locations on every product so the system won’t just select a default warehouse.
If you haven’t setup your warehouses already, see our guide on adding new warehouse locations.
Navigate to Stock control > Locations / warehouses. Edit your first warehouse and scroll down to the Zones section.
Under the Search For Zones to Add drop down, click the courier zones you wish for this warehouse to fulfil. For example, if it’s a Brisbane based warehouse, we want to add the Brisbane zones for all the couriers we use.
Save changes. Now complete the zones for the remaining warehouses.
Setting up your default fulfilment locations is done on the product level. Navigate to Products > View products and edit the product you wish to make changes to.
Click on the Warehouse & Picking tab.
Under Default Fulfilment Warehouse / Pick Locations, add your warehouse locations. If you have a preference over the warehouse you wish to use instead, set a priority number next to the warehouse (remembering the highest number will be used first).
Save changes and now your fulfilment locations are complete. However if you’re like most people and have a lot of products you want to make changes to, you can instead do this in bulk.
You can use the example template we’ve setup to assist you. Under the Warehouse Locations column, use the following to set out your warehouse locations, pick priorities and locations within the warehouse.
