How long does it take inventory to be updated once it is delivered to the warehouse?
Once received (moved to "Arrived" status upon receipt), inventory takes up to 5 business days to be updated.
The Warehouse Receiving Order will be moved to "Processing" and then to "Completed" in your dashboard.
Note: Inventory that arrives without a WRO attached to the outside of the shipment will be put into on-hold receiving until a WRO is linked. Inventory will be stocked within 3-5 days from the time the WRO is attached. Related: On-Hold Receiving and UROs
When will orders be shipped and have tracking numbers available?
Orders imported before 12 p.m. will have tracking information the same business day.
Orders imported after 12 p.m. will have tracking information by the next business day.
B2B/wholesale orders and FBA/pickup orders (anything over 20 total units per order) imported before 12 p.m. will be processed within four business days. Larger orders, freight orders, FBA, or wholesale orders requiring special instructions should be made as a B2B order.
Orders 10 units and under shipping normally (even going to a business) should be input as B2C to ensure they ship within the usual 1-2 day turnaround.
Note: imported orders must be in "Processing" before 12 p.m.. For example, if the completion of a WRO or the edit of an invalid address moves an order from "Exception" or "On Hold to Processing" after 12 p.m., the order will have tracking the next business day.
