Lightspeed Orders Overview


Once you Integrate Lightspeed POS with Sellercloud, you can automatically download orders, monitor their status, update information, cancel, and issue refunds. If you manage multiple shops, it’s important to map them to your Sellercloud warehouses to ensure proper order handling.

If you have other orders coming into your primary company from the Local Store channel, it’s best to Create a New Company in Sellercloud to download Lightspeed orders separately.

Download Orders

You can download Lightspeed orders to Sellercloud automatically and manually.

Orders will be downloaded into Sellercloud with the following details:

  • The Channel will always be Local Store.
  • The Customer will always have the name LightSpeedPOS Order and the email address
  • The orders’ Ship To Name will reflect the actual customer’s name.

Cancel an Order

To cancel an order on Lightspeed, you need to use their platform – you can’t cancel it from Sellercloud. If you cancel an order in Sellercloud, the order only gets canceled in Sellercloud, and there is no effect on that order in Lightspeed. 

You can only cancel an order before it is marked Ship Confirmed. If it’s Ship Confirmed, you must issue a refund.

To cancel an order in Sellercloud:

  1. Go to Orders > Manage Orders.
  2. Open an order.
  3. Click Actions and select Set Cancelled Internally.

Refund an Order

If you refund an order directly on Lightspeed POS, Sellercloud pulls this info and marks the order as refunded. The total refunded amount will be added as a refund on the order, and an order note will be created, saying which items were returned and what the total discount is.

For returned items, you must create an RMA. You can issue refunds from the RMA.

To issue a refund:

  1. Go to Orders > Manage Orders.
  2. Open a completed order.
  3. Click Actions and select Issue Refund.
  4. Enter the Amount To Refund, Refund Date, and add a note in the Notes field.
  5. You can also select the Refund Method and Reference Number.
  6. Click Refund.
