You can create a Picklist for Shipments and them sort it boxes using Packing Slips with Primaseller.
- Picklist – an aggregated list of all items that need to be picked from your warehouse/store for selected shipments that are in the packed stage grouped by SKU across all shipments. This makes it easier to pick items for all your orders instead of going to the shelves for each order.
- Packing Slip – each shipment will have a packing slip indicating what items need to go in that shipment. This will help you sort the items you brought in from the picklist into separate shipments.
Printing for each order
Both Online Orders and B2B Orders allow this at an Order detail level in the Shipment section under Shipment Actions dropdown:
Printing it in Bulk
You can Print it in Bulk for Multiple Shipments by Navigating to B2B or Online Orders -> Shipments -> To Process
This will generate a printable document whose first page will be a Picklist and subsequent pages will have Packing Slip for each Shipment.
Practically Using Primaseller’s Picklist and Packing Slips
Recommended pre-reading: Creating and processing Shipments
Once you have created shipments for your B2B or Online Orders, you will have Shipments created in Primaseller in the ‘Packed’ stage. However, physically your items are still in your storage shelves.
- Print the Picklist and Packing Slips for these shipments and keep the Packing Slips aside. Remember to ensure that you do not lose the packing slips and do not print duplicates as this may lead to double shipping.
- Use the Picklist to pick all items from the shelves and bring it to a packing area. Using a trolley or something similar to carry around is recommended for convenience.
- As you pick items and add it to the trolley, cross off the items on the picklist using a pen
- Bring all items to the packing area
- Use the Packing Slips to identify suitable boxes and keep one packing slip in each box
- Now use each packing slip, pick items from the Picklist-Trolley and add to the box. This process is called Sorting. When all items in the shipment are in the box, use a Marker to write the Shipment ID on the box for reference purposes.
- You may or may not seal the box at this time depending on your need to double check the packing slip while pasting the shipment label
- Assign a Shipper and print Labels.
- Use the Shipment ID written on the box (from step 6) or refer to the packing slip if unsealed to paste the correct shipment ID on the right box.
Using this process ensures you don’t miss out orders or mix them up. You may have a process that is better – this is just one way to handle multiple orders in an error proof way.
