[HOW-TO] Setting Up Domestic Backup Warehouses

Print Friendly and PDF

Once you've set up a warehouse, you need to set backups for it so that Skubana will know which of your other warehouses to pass an order to in case the warehouse runs out stock.

This is the domestic order counterpart of a warehouse's international rank for out-of-country shipments (see Setting Up a Warehouse's International Rank).

This is particularly important if you use three or more warehouses for order fulfillment. If you only have a couple of warehouses, Skubana will automatically set your other warehouse as the backup. 

1. Click the wrench icon to the right of the warehouse name, then click Domestic Backup Order.
2. On the Domestic Backup Warehouses page, the default backup order is based on the order your warehouses were entered into the system. You may reorder the list by dragging a warehouse up or down into the appropriate slot.
3. Click Save.

NOTE: All domestic orders will originate from the primary backup warehouse in case the main warehouse runs out of stock, with Skubana moving on down the other backup warehouses in case the primary backup warehouse also runs out of stock.
