Step 2: Shipment Setup

The first tab that you will arrive on to process your new shipment is the Package Setup tab. This is where you will setup the product and shipping details for the shipment as well as selecting optional automatic emails to be sent to the customer upon completing processing.

Shipment Options

The first set of shipment parameters that you will want to setup are the name & shipping options. Below are a list of field definitions and their actions.

Club Select the club you wish to process. This should already display the name of the club that you chose from the search options in step 1.
Shipment Name

Allows you to name your shipment.

Qualification Date

This date controls who will qualify for the shipment. Club members must have a valid club membership (not Cancelled or On Hold) before this date to qualify for the shipment.

  • Format = MM/DD/YYYY
  • If the member is on hold during the membership qualification date, before you add members to the shipment, then the member will not appear in the club shipment unless their membership hold is removed. If you place a member on hold after you add them to the shipment (but before processing their order) then an on hold message will appear under their name on the Club Members Tab.
Member Sign Up Month

Allows you to optionally filter in members that have signed up only in specific month(s) during processing. This will include members from any months you select across all years and can be used to give your customers more flexibility on when they receive their shipments, or run smaller batches on a more frequent basis.  

Future Ship Date

Allows you to set, an optional, future ship date for orders processed in the shipment. All club orders in the shipment will be assigned the same future ship date. Only use this if you are planning to hold off shipping the orders for a week or more. 

  • Format = MM/DD/YYYY

*Please Note: This option will only appear if you are using the future ship date option. For more information please see the Future Ship Date Documentation.

Shipping

Choose how you want your shipping to be charged by selecting either Use a system shipping rate or Use a flat rate.

  • System Shipping Rate: This will look at the shipping state for the membership and will then review the shipping strategy & shipping type you select for the shipment to calculate the cost of shipping for each member.
  • Flat Rate: This will charge the set flat rate shipping cost to all orders that are being shipped.

*Prepay & Pickup memberships do not apply. 

Flat Rate Shipping

If you select 'Use a flat rate' as your shipping option then the flat shipping rate field will appear. Enter the dollar value for the shipping costs that you would like to charge to all orders that are being shipped.

  • Example: 25.00 or to override shipping charges for shipping included on all orders set 0.00
Shipping Strategy Select the shipping strategy you want to use for the shipment. For more information on shipping strategies please see the Shipping Strategy Documentation.
Shipping Type

Select the shipping type that you want each of these orders to be shipped by. For more information on shipping types please see the Shipping Types Documentation.

  • Example: UPS Ground, FedEx Ground, etc.
  • If a club member lives in a area where your standard shipping type is not available you can set their membership to use a specific shipping type that will always override the option selected in the club shipment. You will want to adjust this on the membership level. For more information please see the Contacts > Clubs Documentation.
Pickup Inventory Pool Allows pickup order to pull inventory from a selected inventory pool such as tasting room inventory. If you are only using a single inventory pool you will not need to make a selection your default pool will be used. 
Shipping Inventory Pool Allows shipping order to pull inventory from a selected inventory pool such as tasting room inventory. If you are only using a single inventory pool you will not need to make a selection your default pool will be used. 
Is Active Allows you to archive shipments that have been completely processed. Keep the shipment 'active' until all members have had a successful order placed. Then archive the shipment. 

Email Options

Club shipments do not have any default email documents that are sent out when you process your shipment. This means that club members will not receive any notification of the shipment like they would if they placed an order online. There are options that allow you to choose specific email documents to be sent to members who either pick up their order or have it shipped to them. This allows you to send custom club emails per club.

Pickup Customer Email

There are two menu selects that control which email document will be sent to members who pick up their club shipment. The first select allows you to choose which category your mail document is in. The second select allows you to pick the specific document that you wish to send. This email document will only be sent after a club order has been processed. This email will only be sent to club members who are set as pickup members on their membership.

For more information please see the Contacts > Clubs Documentation.

Order

There are two menu selects that control which email document will be sent to members who are having their club order shipped to them. The first select allows you to choose which category your mail document is in. The second select allows you to pick the specific document that you wish to send. This email document will only be sent after a club order has been processed. This email will only be sent to club members who are set to ship to their billing address or an alternate shipping address on their membership. For more information please see the Contacts > Clubs Documentation.

Please Note:  For more information on creating email documents please see the Email Documents Documentation.

When you first arrive on the club members tab there will not be any members in your shipment. At the top of the Club Members tab will be a count of how many club members qualify for your shipment based on the Qualification Date. You can either add all members all at once or select individual members.

Add All Members To add all club members at once click on Add All Members.
Select Members To Add To view each of the members who qualify and select which specific members you wish to add to the shipment you will click Select Members To Add.

To add select members click the check box next to each member you wish to add and click Apply Changes once complete.

Searching/Filtering Members

Once you have added members into the shipment you can search for individuals by name or groups of customers by Status. You will want to click on the drop down menu to select which search or filter you would like to use. By default this will be set to View All. Once you have made a selection from the drop down you will need to click the magnifying glass icon next to the menu to complete your search/filter.

Search By Name

This option allows you to search for members by First or Last Name. When you select Search By Name an additional field will appear to the right of the drop drown menu where you will enter the name you are looking for. Click the magnifying glass to complete your search.

View All This options allows you to view all members in the shipment regardless of your status. This is the default search filter.
View All Active This option allows you to view any members who have active club membership within the specific shipment in which you are working. If you have cancelled or placed members on hold once they were added to the shipment (but before you process an order for them) then you will filter out these members.
Processed This option allows you to view all members who have been processed in the shipment. Once a member has been processed there status cannot be changed from 'Processed' or removed from the package.

Step 5: Order Processing

Once you have setup your shipment, managed your members, and previewed some of the orders for various members then you are ready to process your shipment.

The process tab is where you will run/batch process the remaining non-processed members, creating orders in bulk. By default the batch will have the filter selections set to All Members in All States. This means that both your Pickup and Ship members in all states/provinces will be processed together in one batch. However, there are further sort options are available to break your batch into smaller groups for processing.

Use the Membership Type drop down to filter Pick Members or Ship Members only. This will only batch process your pickup or ship members, leaving the other group to be processed at another time.

If you are shorting by Ship Members you can further filter by a specific Ship State. Each state/province will list the number of club members in the shipment that are shipping there order to that specific state. 

If you have select a specific Ship State than the results in the Process Status drop down will update to only include the members in that specific state/province.

When you come into a batch for the first time you will not have any declined orders (due to expired cards, etc) so the Process Status of All Members will be selected be default.

If you are working with a club processing batch that you have already begun to process you can filter between the Declined Members or only the Non-Processed Members left in the shipment. This is helpful because you do not want to attempt a declined order too many times in a row as the multiple attempts could raise flags with the club members credit card provider, causing the provider to reach out to the cardholder.

When you are ready to begin you can click the green Start checkmark in the lower left of the window.

A progress bar will let you know the status of your batch process. If you need to cancel the process at and point you can click the Cancel icon and Resume to continue processing again.

Orders that fail to process will be marked as Error, while all successfully processed orders will record as Success.

When you batch has finshed processing you can either click Next to proceed to the Summary screen or Apply Changes to save the batch and close the window.
