    • Draft
    • Allocated
    • Assigned

    • Invoice: An invoice represents funds captured as payment for an order. An invoice lets you reconcile the funds captured with your external financial management systems. You determine the timing for invoice generation within the framework of your fulfillment workflow.
    • Credit Memo: A credit memo represents a payment refund resulting from a product return. A credit memo lets you reconcile refund disbursements with your external financial management systems. A credit memo is generated automatically when you process a return.

  • By implementing a distributed order management workflow you can:
    • Optimize your network: Use your network of stores and distribution centers to offer fulfillment from each location.
    • Reduce costs: Build in logic to identify the smallest set of locations that can combine to fulfill the order to reduce shipping costs.
    • Fulfill faster: Dynamically route orders to the best location for fulfillment based on time/speed to deliver to boost customer satisfaction.
    • Work smarter: Seamlessly unify digital and physical experiences for a single source of truth across all data and order records.
