Mail Classes

Select your preferred domestic and international mail classes to be used on orders sent to Ingram Content.

If you need to use set specific shipping methods on orders based on the method selected at checkout, set your preferences in the Shipping Class Match section.

Default Order Type

Select how you want Ingram Content to handle orders based on the stock availability of the items in the order. Options include:

Release when Full (RF): When all line items are allocated, the order will ship. This is the lowest freight charge option.

Dual Shipment (LS): Immediate shipment of all in-stock items. Backorders will allocate as stock becomes available. This will result in up to two shipments per warehouse.

Multi Shipment (EL): Immediate shipment of all in-stock items. Backorders will allocate AND SHIP as stock becomes available. This is the fastest delivery option.

These can also be set on a per-order basis, details below.

Import Partially Accepted, Move To

Choose a folder to move orders into if only some of the items have been accepted.

Automatically Send Imported Orders to Ingram Content

If you plan to automatically submit every order to Ingram Content for fulfillment, you can enable this setting. All orders will be sent as they come in to Order Desk.

If you have any other fulfillment services or will have any orders you don't want to send to Ingram Content, keep this disabled. Use rules to submit orders to the appropriate vendor or fulfillment service instead.

If you would like Ingram Content to send inventory reports to Order Desk, enable this setting. If enabled, your stock counts will be pulled into Order Desk on the interval selected in the next setting.
