Warehouse Management Overview


Overview

You can set multiple warehouses in Sellercloud and configure them according to their use. This includes setting different Ship From warehouses using the Channel Warehouses option, configuring your warehouse to be used for FBA shipments, or setting your warehouse as a returns warehouse for RMAs.
You can mark your warehouse as Sellable, which will make the inventory in these warehouses available for sale. If a warehouse is marked as Unsellable, the inventory will not be included in the product’s available inventory. However, inventory will appear in the total physical inventory count.


Warehouse Types

The table below lists the types of warehouses in Sellercloud along with descriptions of what they contain.

TYPE DESCRIPTION
Normal Warehouse The most common type of warehouse. Refers to a typical in-house facility in which you store your products.
FBA Warehouse This is associated with products that are stored at an Amazon Fulfillment Center.
Interim Warehouse Represents inventory that is in transit between two warehouses (i.e., between a Normal warehouse and an FBA Warehouse). This means that when shipping a product from your Normal warehouse to an FBA center, Sellercloud will track your shipment by placing it in an Interim warehouse. When Sellercloud is notified by Amazon that the shipment has been received, the inventory will automatically transfer into the FBA warehouse.

You can create multiple Interim warehouses that can be assigned to different shipments. For example, you can create an Interim warehouse called “In transit to FBA warehouse for FBA” and another interim warehouse named “Company Truck” to use when transferring inventory from one physical warehouse location to another.

DropShip Warehouse This is typically used for vendor feeds. Inventory in the dropship warehouse will not be included in average cost calculations.
Untested Warehouse Inventory in this warehouse will not be included in backorder calculations. This warehouse will not be available under Warehouse Inventory Transfers requests when choosing from and to warehouses.
NewEgg Warehouse This is related to products stored at NewEgg fulfillment centers. Shipped by Newegg.com (SBN) is a fulfillment service that is both efficient and price-conscious. There are three steps you must complete to use this feature. You will need to:

  • Set up your SBN seller account (one-time task)
  • Create an SBN shipment
  • Generate a shipping label

WFS  This is associated with products stored in WFS warehouses. Used for WFS Shipments too.
