Order Notes and Warnings

`


Overview

If an order includes customer service notes and instructions or is for products that come with warnings, these notes and warnings will require acknowledgment before the order is allowed to ship.

Warnings often appear when products are subject to Proposition 65 regulations. If so, the message will appear in all orders in Shipbridge to confirm that the appropriate warning labels exist before shipping is allowed.

Product warnings are automatically included in the attributes sent to the channel that lists that product. If that warning is used for Proposition 65 purposes, this makes the product’s listing compliant.

Understanding notes and warnings

If an order includes customer service notes and instructions or is for products with warnings, these notes and warnings will require acknowledgement before the order is allowed to ship.

Here are 3 sample situations for using this feature:

  • Customer service note— Add a note to ensure the warehouse ships the correct product if 2 color names are close; e.g., Grey and Dark Grey.
  • Product warning— Flag a product with a message that requires acknowledgement before shipping is allowed.
  • Customer instructions— Customer requested “This is a gift, please don’t include a receipt.”

A useful time for warnings is when products are subject to Proposition 65 regulations. If so, the message will appear in all orders in ShipBridge to confirm that the appropriate warning labels exist before shipping is allowed.
