Auto-MCF – Intelligent order allocation scheduler
We are glad to introduce one of most premium feature Auto-MCF for our Orderhive users. If you are using FBA ( Fulfillment by Amazon ) for stocking & shipping, and selling across multiple e-commerce stores & marketplaces, then Auto-MCF will dramatically simplify your life by automatically submitting your multi-channel orders to FBA.
Orderhive adds sophistication to the feature by allowing you to set specific criteria & parameters based on which your incoming orders will be automatically sent to AmazonFBA.
Apply the Auto-MCF logic that helps you best optimize logistic cost and speed up delivery
Orderhive enables you to set Auto-MCF logic which works as a scheduler and runs periodically, capture orders that meet the predefined criteria and automatically send it to Amazon FBA.
You can set Auto-MCF in few simple steps
( a ) Set the automation name
Based on naming conventions, you can set a unique name for the automation rule you want to apply.
For eg., if you want to set rules for Shopify orders, you can set the name as “Shopify order allocation scheduler”.
( b ) Apply Rules
You can apply combinations of factors to dynamically assign orders to FBA.
The Auto-MCF will filter order based on your store name, order status ( confirmed or not confirmed ) and payment status ( paid or unpaid ) and run the scheduler for a particular period.
For eg., if you want to assign only paid Shopify orders to FBA for a specific time period, you can set such rules in the Orderhive back-end.
( c ) Set Parameters for warehouse selection & shipment speed
Set criteria for warehouse selection and optimally fulfill orders based on your global inventory availability. Dynamically select the required shipment option based on the delivery urgency.
( d ) Enable or disable partial shipment option
If you want Amazon to partially ship the order, you can enable the option for partial shipments. You can view the unprocessed item of the order in Orderhive and create shipments for the same.
( e ) Review and set your Auto-MCF scheduler live
Once your Auto-MCF scheduler is live, Orderhive will send orders to AmazonFBA warehouse whenever they fall under the specified rules.
