After pushing products to your Shopify store, you will need to go to Shopify All Products section. There you will select the product or products you imported to change the description according to your audience preferences. 

Remember that you don’t have to change variants or add new variants in your Shopify store. Otherwise, the SKU code will change and our platform won’t be able to recognize the order.

Fulfilling Orders

After connecting your store and pushing our products, every time you will receive an order, we will receive it too.

If you use some external applications (e.g. Zipify or Clickfunnel) to receive payments, be sure to communicate it to your e-com manager. In this way, our team will be able to make your orders visible on our platform too.

To fulfill your orders log into the platform and go to the “Orders to Pay” subsection from the Dashboard. You can also click on Fulfill in the Pending Order card from the Dashboard.

Here, you will see the list of your pending orders, including related information (e.g. order number, customer, store, product, date and total). You can select all the orders you want to pay, even if from different stores, and fulfil them with only one payment.

If you want to pay all the orders together, just select them all and then click “Pay all orders”. You can pay with PayPal, Stripes and with uDroppy Virtual Funds.

The date that you make this payment is considered the fulfilment date; we will begin processing the orders from this point on.

Buying uDroppy Funds is convenient. It makes the payment process quicker and safer, especially if you work while travelling. In fact, you won’t have to insert any personal data while using foreign networks.

Invoicing & Tracking Numbers

After the fulfillment of one or more orders, you will receive an invoice for your payment. You can check all the invoices in the dedicated section of the menu.

By clicking on one of the invoices you will also be able to open the detail. 

You will also be able to check tracking number of the shipped orders. 

All you have to do is going to the “Order History” section. It’s a subsection of the “Orders” menu.

Once there, open the details of the order that you need by clicking on the arrow. The platform will show you the tracking number related to that order. The code will be shared with Shopify first and then with your client.

Please consider that you will be able to track the shipping only when your order leaves our logistic center. To check the progress of the shipping process you can use the platform 17track. 

Virtual Warehouse & COD

You’ll see other features in the sidebar.

First of all the “Virtual Warehouse”. The Virtual Warehouse allows you to buy a stock of products to lower the unit costs and get access to white labeling (min. 500 pcs for products and 1000 pcs for packaging). We will then store the products in our logistic centres so that you don’t have to rent a warehouse. Moreover we will also take care of shipping to your final customers, so that you don’t have to deal with logistic aspects by yourself.

The Virtual Warehouse feature is not available in the free StartUp version of the platform, nor in the Traction plan.

If you have your own warehouse and you prefer to ship products directly to shorten the delivery times, you can buy in Bulk. You find the section in the left menu  of the platform.

Bulk is perfect if you want to lower the unit costs and do white labeling (here again, minimum 500 pcs for products and 1000 pcs for packaging). 

Moreover, we also support Cash on Delivery thanks to our top-notch logistic partner. The COD service is available in these select countries: Italy, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Bulgaria, Greece and Romania. Visit the COD section in the platform, and contact our team for more info.

This feature is only available to Pro and Platinum users.
