If you already have a shipping solution in place that you want to continue to use, there is a way to tie Unify Enterprise into that process. Here is how:
Third party shipping solution
Your current shipping solution will be first in line [A] to download orders from your online store and get them shipped. Here is what you need to know about your shipping solution:
1) After an order is shipped, your shipping solution must able to send the tracking information back to the online order in the store. [B]
2) Once the shipping information (tracking info, method) is in the order in the online store, is the order status changed to reflect the shipping (Shipped/Completed, etc)? [C]
These two functions are essential for communicating with your customers that the order has been shipped as well as how Unify Enterprise will download the orders.
In Unify Enterprise [C]
If your shipping solution modifies the order status, which indicates the order has been shipped and is ready to be posted to QuickBooks, here is how to set that up in Unify Enterprise:
1) In Unify Enterprise go to file->Configuration store and select the Orders screen.
Note: Order statuses vary from online store. Select the status you specifically utilize within your store.
2) Select the order status that you use to indicate in your online store, that an order has shipped.
3) The process payment column should be set to "No, Mark as Paid" = orders will appear as "Paid" in Unify Enterprise.
4) The Process Shipment column should be set to "No, Mark as Shipped" = orders will appear as "Shipped" in Unify Enterprise.
Within the Unify Enterprise inbox
As you can see, the orders that are downloaded are Paid and Shipped. They are now ready to be posted to QuickBooks [D].
