eCommerce to ERP integration is all about moving manual tasks out of the merchant or brand’s way.
In the weeds on sales fulfillment in NetSuite
We have a merchant that fulfills sales orders outside of NetSuite but uses NetSuite for their financial reporting.
Instead of creating a new Sales Order every time there is a new order, it makes sense to simplify the processing of an order within NetSuite. We made their integration flow 'create an Invoice' instead of 'create a Sales Order.'
Easy, simple and smart.
What merchants normally do
The process typically is to create a Sales Order. Then the user creates an “Item Fulfillment” for the order and does the picking and packing. They then ship it and close the item fulfillment which generates an Invoice.
Why this new feature saves merchants time
So by creating the Invoices for those that fulfill outside of their ERP, we skip the entire manual process if their orders are being shipped outside of NetSuite such as Amazon FBA.
Hope this was helpful!
