Shipping Report

Overview

In this article, you will learn about Sellercloud’s Shipping Report. This report is a valuable tool that tracks the shipping costs, methods, and fulfillment of your orders.

You can see the following:

  • Order information – order ID, channel, and channel order number.
  • Shipping information – carrier, method, tracking number, shipping promise date, ship date, final shipping carrier, address, and shipper.
  • Package information – package count and package weight.
  • Costs – shipping cost, shipping discounts, and shipping total.
  • Fulfillment performance – the timeliness of fulfillment in relation to the shipping promise date set on the order, based on the Order Promise Date.

Filtering by fulfillment performance can help you ensure that orders are shipped and delivered promptly and accurately.

You can run this report automatically on a regular basis with Scheduled Tasks.
