SKU Alerts notify you if there are orders that can be merged, if any orders have been skipped and not downloaded into Skubana, or if inventory has failed to update for some of your listings. These alerts periodically pop up on your screen.

If an alert appears while you're away from the screen, a badge with the number of missed alerts will appear in the top-right corner of the toolbar.

To view your SKU Alerts, go to the top-right corner of the toolbar, hover your cursor over the hamburger menu, and select SKU ALERTS from the dropdown.

Below is a sample SKU alert that recommends combining open orders to save on shipping costs. These alerts usually occur when a customer places multiple orders using the same name and shipping address.

To delete an alert from the SKU Alerts window, click the x icon in the Dismiss column.

To delete all alerts, click the Delete All button in the bottom left corner. Once SKU Alerts are deleted, they will not reappear.

To view the current SKU Alerts at any time, hover your cursor over the hamburger menu in the top-right corner and select SKU ALERTS from the dropdown.

Details

In order for the "Combine Orders" SKU Alert to be prompted, orders must:

  • Include the same Customer Name and Address,

  • Have one of the following order statuses: Awaiting Shipment, Awaiting 3PL Export, Awaiting Dropship, Awaiting MC Fulfillment.

The orders that this alert is prompted for do not need to be assigned to the same warehouse. These alerts can also be triggered for manual orders and split orders (regardless of whether they were split manually or via orderbot). SKU Alerts occur when an order is processed in Skubana.
