Walk through a cross dock order

Let's create a test cross dock order. We will show you how to remove it at the end.

Start in Restock Suggestions:

Click Restock Suggestions, and choose a Supplier from the list. (If you haven't added any, click here for help.) You should switch to the Product list and see the assigned SKU.


Add the item to the cart:

Scroll to the right side of the screen and enter a reorder quantity for this test order, such as 5. Press enter.

If you see a prompt to choose the source of the order, choose the supplier. Click next.

Enter a test order name such as your initials + the date + "test"

Click “Cross Dock to Amazon” to indicate you are creating a cross dock order, then click Create Order. Let's pretend that is all you need to order for now. Click "Create PO" above the top right corner of the grid. 

RestockPro will display a preview of the order. Click “Save/Exit” to mark the PO as Sent and go to the Orders Page.  


Receive items at your prep location:

Go to the Orders screen and find the PO you just created, then click “Receive Items” under the Next Steps column.

Each PO has two tabs: Shipping plan and PO. 

Select the "PO" tab. 

Click "Mark all Received" to mark the 5 items as received, then click "Save."

RestockPro will prompt you to confirm your received quantities and inform you that the order cannot be edited once it is marked as received. Click “OK” to mark the order as received.


Now create the Shipment:

Select the "Shipment Plan" tab. Click the button “Ship”

RestockPro will display a prompt to choose how you will complete the shipment. Click OK to finalize the shipment in RestockPro. 

Review the shipping summary and choose who will prep if this item requires it.

Go to the shipping options and click next

RestockPro connects to Amazon to determine where to route the shipment.  View the shipping plan and click next.

The shipment has now been created as Working on your shipping queue.

On the last page, you will see options to print item stickers. If you print stickers, check out RestockPro's customizable stickers with the ability to print to sticker sheets or a thermal printer. When you are ready to move on, click "Go to Orders."

In the orders page, find the name of the shipment you just created and click its name to open it.

What if I'd rather create my shipment in Seller Central or elsewhere?

Fill in your shipping details:

Box contents - Enter a 1 near the top for the number of boxes, and fill in the total quantity you are shipping. Click "Send to Amazon" when you are done. Amazon will confirm the box contents are received in a few minutes. You can continue working and revisit the status later. 

Box & Label - specify the carrier, boxes, and other details depending on the shipping method. Review and accept shipping charges, if needed. Download the labels.

Wait and watch for shipment to arrive.


Cleaning Up

You can remove the order by scrolling the orders page all the way to the right and clicking the folder icon. RestockPro will display a prompt 

Open the shipment you generated. If you approved any shipping charges, go into Box and Label to void any charges.

In the shipment, click "Delete Shipment."  Since this is a test order, uncheck the box that would return the items to local inventory. Click yes to confirm that the shipment will be archived in RestockPro.
