Shipments CSV

The following guidelines should be noted when creating your Shipments CSV file for import:

  • Each row in the csv will represent a shipping parcel with allocations.
  • Shipment Name will be used to find existing shipments.
  • If no match is found using Shipment Name, a new shipment will be created for that row.
  • When creating a shipment automatically set the Origin Location - follow same logic as today (Site Owner's Default Billing Location).

Validation of the import file will fail if any of the following information is not correctly provided:

  • Shipment Date is set to a value in the past
  • Unable to find a matching Tax Rate
  • Billing or Destination Locations
  • Unable to find a matching region or country (Billing & Destination)
  • Parcel dimension (L, H, W)
  • Parcel mass units (not provided or unable to find a match)
  • Parcel dimension units (not provided or unable to find a match)
  • Parcel Order Item allocation is not provided
  • Order Item Number match could not be found
