How to create a brand new Fulfillment Center or Location for your account

Your SellerActive account gives you the ability to create locations for your SKUs. Locations will be marked within the Order Manager when a purchase is made. Here's how to add a fulfillment center/location.

Things to note

  • If you do not set a custom Default Warehouse prior to integrating your sales channels, all of your items quantities will import and then be assigned to "My Warehouse". 
  • Within SellerActive, "Locations" actually refer to  Fulfillment Centers, e.g. "West Coast Warehouse", as opposed to a shelf location within a warehouse.
  • If you are working with Deliverr, Deliverr is its own location, separate from your own personal warehouse.
  • If you set a location for your items, you will be required to specify a location whenever you update quantities going forward.
  • Locations must be prioritized in descending order. The location you set as your #1 priority will be used to fulfill orders first, and once that location has a quantity of 0, SellerActive will automatically begin to fulfill orders from your #2 priority location.

How to Add a New Fulfillment Center or Location

Fulfillment Centers can be added through the Fulfillment Centers page or they can be created in bulk using a file upload template. 

Fulfillment Centers page

  1. Go to your Fulfillment Centers page under Settings -> Fulfillment Centers
    1. If you're creating your account for the first time, you might notice a Fulfillment Center here marked as "My Warehouse". This will be set automatically for your by default in order to establish a baseline for your catalog. The Default Fulfillment Center can be added and removed at any time. 
  1. Click "Add" to add a new Fulfillment Center. You can add the warehouse location address as well as make the Fulfillment Center your Default option: 
  2. Save your changes.
    1. Adding a different Default Fulfillment Center will not adjust the quantity away from your previous Defaulted option. You might need to edit your quantities in bulk in order to properly re-assign the new Fulfillment Center or make additional edits/changes.
    2. Here is more information on how to update quantities in bulk. 

After your Fulfillment Center has been created, you will see it in the list of options within each SKU. If you do not create a Fulfillment Center then every non-FBA item will be assigned to "My Warehouse" by default. 

  • You can review the Fulfillment Centers assigned to any SKU from the SKUPane. If you search either workspace, select the SKU, and then navigate to the Inventory Tab. You can also select the Quantity from the Listings Workspace to go directly to this page. 

    If you have more then one warehouse, drag and drop your location to assign the priority.

    In Bulk

    As noted earlier, the legacy application does see "Fulfillment Center" as "Location". They are one-in-the-same.

    You can create, delete, or modify the quantities of locations via a file upload. Location Priority is only required if you have more then one location.
