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 Mapping
Ship Mapping allows Dsco to normalize shipping options which enables more comprehensive reporting and functionality surrounding SLA enforcement while allowing retailers and suppliers to utilize their own shipping codes. Whenever an order is imported into Dsco, we will check the designated shipping option against the ship mapping and, if we find a match, we will normalize that shipping to Dsco's standard codes. If no mapping is found, we will compare the code against the standard codes and normalize accordingly if a match is found. Otherwise, we will use the designated shipping carrier/method/service code as-is without normalization. In that case, Dsco will not be able to enforce SLA's or provide other functionality surrounding shipping reporting.
To set up your ship mapping as a supplier, please follow these steps:
Step 1: Log into your Dsco account.
Step 2: Move your mouse over your account name at the top-right and select Settings and then select Ship Mapping.
Any shipping carrier/method combination that your retailer(s) have enabled will be highlighted in yellow. This means that it is important for you, as the supplier, to set up your mapping for at least these shipping options.
Step 3: If you wish to map your own shipping service level codes to Dsco's standard codes, put a check in the box under the Customize column and then enter your own values into the Carrier, Method and Service Code boxes.
Step 4: Select Save Changes.
