This is the fastest option for shipping a couple of orders. The Dsco portal enables you to ship one order at a time. Shipping information can also be added at the same time the invoice is created. Shipping an order moves the order to the Shipped status.
Adding Shipment Info Directly to an Order
Instead of reading this documentation article, if you'd prefer to see a walkthrough of this feature directly in the Dsco portal then click this link: Ship an Order
Step 1: Log into Dsco and select ORDERS.
Step 2: Select SHIPMENT PENDING.
Step 3: Find the order you wish to update and select the PO number to view the order details.
You may also go to ALL ORDERS and search for a specific PO number using the search box at the top of that page.
Step 4: Select the Add Tracking button toward the top of the page.
Step 5: Enter the Tracking Number, making sure to select the right quantities for each SKU that is included in the shipment, select the right Shipping Method and select Save Shipment.
If you need to add another shipment, select the Add Another Package button to save the current tracking information and add more shipment information.
Adding Shipment Information with an Invoice
Beginning January 2018, shipment information can also be added at the same time the invoice is created for an order. The steps below show the actions required to add that shipment information to the order via an invoice. Go here for more help with creating an invoice in the portal.
Dsco requires that an order be shipped before it can be invoiced. However, we also allow the shipping information to be provided with the invoice. When Dsco processes an invoice with shipping information, we will check our records to determine if we have seen that tracking information previously and, if we haven't seen it, we will store it on the order and allow the invoice to be created.
When this type of invoice is created through Automated options, such as EDI or TAB delimited exchange, the system handles this logic automatically.
When attempting to create an invoice for an unshipped order through the Dsco portal, the portal will detect that the order in question is not in "shipped" status and display the following message:
If you see that message, follow the steps below to add shipping information to that invoice:
Step 1: Select the I'll provide shipping information on the invoice button.
Step 2: If the entire order was shipped, locate the Shipping section on the next page. Much of the information for the invoice will already be populated, but you'll need to add the correct shipping info in the Shipping section. Make sure to include the Number of Units Shipped, Shipping Method, Shipping Carrier, and Tracking Number.
Step 3: Alternatively, if only certain line items were shipped, scroll down to the Line Items section to add the shipping information for each shipped line item.
