Overview

The Manage FBA Shipments page in Sellercloud gives you quick and easy access to all your FBA Inbound Shipments. On this page, you can:

  • View all FBA shipments in your Sellercloud account
  • Use search filters to show only specific shipments
  • Save your filters to effortlessly repeat searches
  • Sort the list of shipments based on different columns
  • Show or hide data columns from the list
  • Perform individual and bulk actions related to shipments

Page Overview

To access your FBA inbound shipments, go to Inventory > FBA Inbound Shipments > Manage FBA Shipments.

There are three components to the Manage FBA Shipments page:

  • Search Filters – Search criteria used to get specific results. You can save searches for repeat use.
  • Search Results – A list of FBA shipments matching your search filters. You can sort it differently and show or hide data columns.
  • Actions – Actions related to FBA shipments.

Search Filters

Filters offer multiple-choice selection lists or allow you to enter specific values. Your choices build on each other. Each subsequent choice narrows the scope of your search results further and affects what the page displays. You can add as many filters as you like or none at all.

There are Default filters that are always displayed and Custom filters that you can display manually by clicking the Add filter button and selecting a filter from the list. To remove a custom filter from the page, click the Trash icon next to it.

After you click Search, each filter you apply gets highlighted in orange or green. If a filter is gray or not displayed at all, it’s not active. You can add or remove filters and search again at any time.

Once you have set up your filters, you can click Save View to save the search. Then, you can repeat the same search by selecting it from the Saved Views menu on the top right.

For a list of all filters and their descriptions, see the Filter Descriptions.

Search Results

The search results display a list of shipments matching your search criteria, with data columns showing various shipment details.

You can add, remove, and even reorder data columns. To do so, click the three dots icon at the top right and select Customize Columns.

Now you can:

  • Reorder columns by dragging them vertically in the list
  • Hide columns by clicking the Trash icons
  • Add columns by clicking Add column

You can also sort the shipments list in a different order based on a specific column using the Sort by drop-down menu.

For a list of all data columns and their descriptions, see the Column Descriptions.

Actions

The Manage FBA Shipments page also has actions for shipment management.

The Actions icon is located on the bottom right of the page. By default, it is a green plus icon that allows you to create a new shipment. When you select shipments from the search results by checking the boxes to their left, the icon turns blue. Once it’s blue, you can click it to manage all selected shipments.

You can use the search to find a specific action quickly. Click the Star icon next to any frequently used action to pin it to the top of the actions list for quick access.

Some of these actions will display a notification at the bottom of the screen when used, telling you that a Queued Job has been created. You can click the link to the queued job to view it. Make sure to refresh the page to update the job’s Status.

For a list of all actions and their descriptions, see the Action Descriptions.
