Download Orders From a Channel

Overview

For the majority of sales channels, Sellercloud downloads orders automatically on a regular basis. However, in some cases, you may have to manually download orders from a channel

This option is most commonly used during the initial setup of a channel integration or as a regular way to import orders for an integration where you can’t download orders automatically. It can also be a helpful backup option if something prevents the default automatic order download. Another potential use is resolving an issue with a specific order – you can delete the order and then re-download it.

This article guides you step-by-step through the process of downloading orders from the following channels:

For most core channels, you can also manually download orders using the Import Orders action available in the Actions menu on the Company Settings > Channel > General Settings page.
You can also import orders to Sellercloud by manually uploading a file. See Import Order Information From a File for details and a step-by-step guide.
When downloading orders, Sellercloud cross-checks the list of channel order IDs being imported with the already imported channel order IDs to prevent importing duplicate orders. To re-download an order, delete the previously imported order with the same ID.

Download Channel Orders

To manually download orders from a specific channel to Sellercloud:

  1. Go to Orders > Tools > Download Orders from Channel.
  2. Select the channel to download from.
  3. Configure the download by selecting the Company to download orders to, the Date Range with orders to import, and any other options, if available.

    When downloading orders from Amazon, make sure to stay within a time frame of one month. If you need orders from a more extended period, split your requests into one-month segments. This guideline doesn’t apply to other channels, but as a general rule of thumb, you should avoid downloading orders for extended periods all at once.
  4. Click Download.
  5. Sellercloud creates a Queued Job. Click the link in the notification at the bottom of the page to view the queued job. Note that the orders may not be visible right away.
