Bypass Compliance/Fulfillment

If you are using an integrated Compliance (WineDirect Compliance or ShipCompliant) and/or an integrated fulfillment provider with a direct integration (WineDirect Fulfillment or Copper Peak Logistics) you can mark SKUs that you fulfill in house so that they are not sent to compliance and fulfillment with this settings.

SKUs will be recorded in the order in Vin65 and will be sold but the SKU information will not be passed into your compliance and fulfillment software.

Once a product with a Bypass Compliance/Fulfillment setting has been purchased it will always be excluded from webservices on the order. You would have to remove bypass setting on the product, refund the order, and place a new order with the SKU in it's non-bypassed state to send it to compliance and fulfillment.

WD Fulfillment

Allows you to control how the product will be sent over to WineDirect. (Only appears for if your Vin65 account is integrated with WineDirect fulfillment).

  • Send to Fulfillment Normally: If selected, this will control how the SKU will be sent to WineDirect. This function will slightly vary between bundles and non-bundle SKUs.
    • Wines, Products, etc (non-bundles): The SKU will be sent over as a normal SKU.
    • Bundles: The bundle SKU will not be sent over to fulfillment, only the subSKUs that make up the bundle, so that WineDirect knows which wines to pack for the order. This would be used for bundles that are not prepackaged at WineDirect.
  • Send to Fulfillment/Compliance as Parent SKU: If selected, the bundle SKU only will be passed to WineDirect fulfillment, not the individual products that make up the bundle. This allows you to still deplete the individual wine inventory in Vin65 while selling prepackaged GSETS* at WineDirect. (Only appears on Product Bundle/Set product types).
  • Send to Fulfillment as SPCL**: Allows you to send non-bundle products to WineDirect with an SPCL note in the Order Notes so that the order is held in WineDirect fulfillment and let's the fulfillment team know that there is action needed for this SKU such as custom packaging.

*GSETs are prepackaged bundles that are picked, packed, and stored at WineDirect fulfillment.

** SPCL is used by WineDirect for orders needing special fulfillment attention such as holiday orders, special packaging, etc.
