Purpose: Use this screen to specify the order type to identify a ship-for-pickup order that originated in a retail location, which sent the order to Order Management System for special order processing.
Code field: Enter the code that identifies the special order type. When you generate a pick slip for a ship-for-pickup order of this type, the system submits the order to the Order Broker and indicates the e-commerce order number (displayed as the Alt ord number at the ) as the order_id.
Why send e-commerce order number? Since special ship-for-pickup orders originated in the retail location, they are identified primarily by the store system’s original order number, rather than the Order Management System order number. However, if there is no e-commerce order number for the order, then the system sends the Order Management System order number.
Leave this field blank if you do not process special ship-for-pickup orders.
