The inventory transfer tab will allow you to transfer your inventory to other Shipbob fulfillment centers or directly to Amazon! You can see your existing Transfer Orders and create new ones.
To create a new transfer, begin by clicking the transfer inventory button on the top right of the page.
- Choose your transfer type
- External Transfer (Amazon FBA)
- Shipbob Warehouse
- Transfer to and from location
- Packing instructions
Click Next and choose:
- shipping options
- ship date
- when inventory should be picked
Click Next and add items and quantities to the order details page. From here you can still edit the ship date and other order details.
You should send inventory to the fulfillment center(s) closest to the majority of your customers. By keeping shipments within the closest shipping zone possible, you can greatly reduce both costs and shipping timeframes. See here for shipping zone charts from each fulfillment center.
If you choose to send inventory to more than 1 fulfillment center, the dashboard will automatically assign orders to the FC closest to the recipient destination. *Note: if 1 FC runs low on inventory, orders will be assigned to another FC with the needed inventory in stock.
