Order Type

There are a number of different order types to help to distinguish where an order originated. By default orders placed through the admin panel are automatically assigned an order type of AdminPanel. It is recommended that you use the AdminPanel type for orders manually placed through the Vin65 admin panel. For more information, including a list of order types, please see the Order Type Documentation.
Sale Type If you are using ShipCompliant you will have the Sale Type selection in your admin panel. This allows you to mark an order as being place OnSite (or on your premises) or OffSite (through the website, off the property, or outside events).

Sales Associate

If you are using the Sales Associate option you will be able to assign an order to a specific sales associate to assist in order tracking and commission for orders placed. The sales associate will be recorded on the order and cannot be changed once the order is placed. Sales associate information will appear in sales reports such as the Sales By Date report which contains a Sales Associate column. For more information please see the Sales Associates Documentation.
Sales Attribute Sales Attributes allow you to create additional markers to tag your orders with. Like Sales Associates a Sales Attribute is recorded on the orders and cannot be changed once the order is placed. Sales attribute information will appear in reports such as the Sales By Date report which contains a Sales Attribute column. For more information please see the Sales Attribute Documentation
Source Code The Source Code field allows you to add additional free-form text information to flag an order for a specific purpose. The order source code can be found in your Sales Detail/Sales Detail X Report.
