Ship From Address in Shipbridge

Overview

The Ship From address is the warehouse from which your shipment will be picked up for final delivery to a carrier’s fulfillment center.

The Ship From address is not your supplier’s address. Think of the Ship From address as your shipment’s last stop before being delivered to a fulfillment warehouse.

An order’s Ship From address is important as this is used for the shipping cost calculation.


Manage the Ship From Address

You can see the Ship From in the Address section in the bottom left corner.

By default, the label’s Ship From address is pulled from the profile of the company on the order.

To change that address in Sellercloud:

  2. Go to Address panel > Click Edit > Change the address.
  3.  Click Save.Changing Ship From address in Sellercloud

However, if you need a different Ship From address on the label, two options exist to override it: 

  •  Channel Company Profile This lets you set different Ship From addresses based on the originating channel.
  • Shipbridge setting Use Warehouse AddressThis setting is located in Menu > Options > Shipping, and uses the address set on the Ship From warehouse profile page. Use warehouse address

To change this, in Sellercloud:

  1. Go to Settings > Inventory > Manage Warehouses.Manage warehouses in Sellercloud
  2. Open a warehouse > Click Edit > Change the address in the Address panel.
  3. Click Save.Changing address in warehouse

By default, the Default Warehouse is the Ship From warehouse. However, you can set up Locations and Stations to ship from other warehouses. 


Locations and Stations

To keep track of order shipping, you can set a shipping station location to identify where it was shipped.

Warehouses can also be associated with locations for inventory movement. Orders shipped from that location will deduct inventory from the associated warehouse.

Locations and stations are added (and edited) in SellerCloud:

  1. Click Settings > Inventory > Warehouse Locations > Click the plus icon to Add New Location.
  2. Enter a location name; for example, New Jersey. If you want to associate the warehouse for inventory reductions, select a warehouse from the Warehouse dropdown.
