Modern Retail’s Ship From Store feature treats your stores as warehouses, automatically routing online orders to your stores for fulfillment. What’s nice about this feature is you can sell all the inventory you have across all your stores and locations. No longer will you have inventory “locked” in a store because you don’t have a means of showing its inventory online or the ability to fulfill orders from that location.
Modern Retail has teamed up with ShipStation and will send online orders to the correct store or warehouse based on rules that make sense for your business. Rules such as geo-location (closest location with inventory), location with the most inventory, location least inventory, or simply specifying the location to use first, second, third, etc. can all be defined in Modern Retail’s Ship From Store.
Shipping is easy, simply log into ShipStation where you’ll see all your online orders automatically broken up by the location. That’s right, your store in, say Chicago, will see just their orders, whereas, your store in New York will see theirs.
