Introducing Shopify locations
Shopify requires tracking and inventory updates to include a location ID. Shopify locations are created in the Shopify site, and their location IDs will be imported into Sellercloud. You must create and configure Shopify locations on your Shopify site so you can track inventory and fulfill orders at these locations.
What is a location in Shopify? It’s a physical place or app where you perform any of the following activities:
- Sell products
- Ship or fulfill orders
- Stock inventory
The IDs of Shopify locations will be imported into Sellercloud; you can view these imported Shopify locations and re-download them into Sellercloud by clicking Settings > Company > Toolbox > Website > Sellercloud Integrated Website > Shopify Locations:
- Learn more about locations on your Shopify site.
- Set up these locations in Shopify by following their instructions.
- After you integrate Sellercloud with your Shopify site, you map these location(s) to your Sellercloud warehouses to prevent errors when tracking or updating your inventory.
Mapping locations to Sellercloud warehouses
After Shopify is integrated with Sellercloud, you must map each of these Shopify locations to a warehouse in Sellercloud. This mapping will determine which warehouse’s available inventory is sent for which location, and prevents errors when updating inventory or tracking. Note that if the warehouse is unsellable and does not need to be sent to Shopify, you do not have to map the warehouse.
To map Shopify locations to your Sellercloud warehouses:
- Click Settings > Company > Toolbox > select the Channel Warehouse Mapping tool.
- In the Select Channel field, choose “Website.” The page refreshes with the following:
- Local Warehouse column – Shows all warehouses in Sellercloud
- Channel Warehouse Code column – Lists all locations imported from Shopify
- Map all Shopify locations to your Sellercloud warehouses, then click Save.
