If you use pick with pick lists, there are two general procedures to choose from when handling your orders.

Procedure 1

First, you print only the pick list, using the bulk action feature.

Second, you find the items on the pick list in your stockroom.

Only when all the goods have been found, you can create deliveries, print any delivery notes and capture payments on the orders.

Procedure 2

You print the pick list, create deliveries, print any delivery notes and capture payments in one work procedure, using the bulk action feature.

Then you find the items on the pick list in your stockroom.

Our recommendation

Using procedure 2 is not optimal for several reasons.

  • In some countries (for example, Denmark), it is not legal to capture payments on an order before the shipment is packed and ready for shipping.

  • You may run the risk of some items not being in stock, and you will then have to cancel one or more deliveries/shipments and refund money to customers.

  • Should any problems with your printer occur, the pick lists cannot be reprinted without manually canceling all deliveries and restoring them, which can be time-consuming.

We recommend that you manage your orders according to procedure 1, as it corrects and minimizes your risk of errors and cancellations.
