Blacklisting Orders

[accordions id=’7325′]

Understanding blacklisting

You can create rules which can blacklist orders based on certain criteria. For example, if you have a customer who repeatedly orders, and then gives bad reviews, you may want to flag and cancel orders from that customer. Or let’s say you want to prevent orders with a shipping address to a freight forwarder because of potential complications  with those delivery services. Creating blacklisting rules can flag those orders and prevent them from shipping.

Blacklisted orders can still be shipped in Sellercloud. However, in ShipBridge, you can prevent your shipping department from shipping blacklisted orders by enabling Stop Blacklisted Order in the General Settings tab.

Search for blacklisted orders with blacklisted filter in Advanced Search tab. The orders blacklisted status will display in the order status column together with the blacklisting rule’s ID that  is applied to the order.
