Once you have finished adding your styles to your order and before the order can be submitted, the proper Order Details need to be defined.
Navigation: Orders > Create
Step 3: Order Details
Order ID: * Is a required field and depending on your settings you may have a checkbox to “Auto Assign” the order ID, a textbox to enter an order ID or the option to use either.
Store PO: Depending on the customer, the order may or may not have a PO #. The Purchase Order number is provided to the customer when they ordered their goods.
Store #: For customers with more than one location, that may sort and redistribute orders from one central location, may have a store # used to identify its final location.
Department: For larger Consumers or Department Stores that may have Shipping or Delivery areas where goods are received and then redistributed to different departments, the Department may need to be identified on the packing list, invoice, or box.
Vendor ID: Vendor ID may be needed for department store routing and redistribution after delivery.
Store Category: Store Category may be needed for delivery and routing within a department store.
Order Type: Order Types are categorized into:
- Pick/ Pack: Orders that are pulled from inventory and picked and packed by the Distribution Center.
- Cross Dock: Pre-packed orders that arrive at the Distribution Center and need to be re-routed. Cross Dock orders will not pull from Inventory, and will always allocate 100%.
Stock Transfer: One option under Order detail is the Stock Transfer to option. This is for users who have a portal with more than one distribution center location. If a location is selected using the dropdown, Blast Ramp will automatically create a receiving receipt in the location selected identical to the order being created. Once the product ships from one location, the second location will have all the information needed to receive it once it arrives.
Order Terms: * Is a required field. Outlines how payments will be received for the goods and shipping terms, which outline the carrier or transit details. It will also state what the first order created for that Customer and the Customer Profile outlines. Once the order is created it can be brought up, unlocked and these can be altered by order, and set under the Customer Tab.
Shipment Terms: * Is a required field. Outlines how the order is to ship to the customer, whether it is Standard Ground, Express, Overnight, etc.
Start and Expiry Dates: The Start and Cancel Dates are negotiated between the brand and the consumer. The product should not be received by the store before the start date and should not arrive after the cancel date.
Rep Name: When creating the order, a rep name can be attached to it. Reporting can also be used to track sales to a specific person.
Tip: Rep Names can added under the Advanced Tab as a listed name or as a user account.
Comments: A comment can be placed on the order for the warehouse and/or customer; it will appear on the pickticket and packing slip.
Include Marketing Materials: A SKU can be flagged as POP/Marketing Materials to show up on the order entry screen instead of on the Linelist, so that it stands out to reps better.
Tip: The Marketing Materials option can be set up when the Linelist is uploaded or after the upload, through Mass Edit in the Inventory Tab.
Once the details have been entered, review your order and then select the “Submit” button to create it. A successfully submitted order will pass you to a confirmations screen that confirms your order ID and the details of your order.
