Welcome to YYZ-Prep's video tutorial on how to create an inbound shipping plan on our platform.
First, log in to your account on the YYZ web app and click on the 'Inbound Shipments' tab on the left hand side. Then, click the 'New Shipment' button on the top right of the page.
This opens up the Create Inbound Shipment information page. Over here, you only have to edit the Shipment Name input. The rest can be left as is.
Your shipment name should consist of your supplier name followed by an order identification code such as an Order ID or Order Number. These are used to match each order you place with an inbound.
Each order you place with a supplier should have a different inbound created for that order number. Once you've added the title, click on 'Create Shipment'
It will take you to the inbound shipment page for the shipment you just created. In this page, you can add notes on the top left in the white textbox.
Notes can be anything useful for the receiving team to read when they are inbounding your delivery such as backorders, cancellations from suppliers, known discrepancies, etc. If you have a US and Canadian account with us and are splitting one supplier order into both accounts, it's also good to note that here.
Next, you can add all the items you are expecting to receive from your supplier to this inbound shipment plan. To do this, click the Add Items button on the right. From here you can search and filter your products to find the ASINs you are expecting to receive, along with their expected quantity. Please be sure to add the same ASINs you expect to ship them out as.
For example, if your supplier is shipping you individual toothpaste boxes and you're selling them as a multipack of 3, you should put the multipack of 3 ASIN in this plan. If you're getting 30 individual bottles and the total amount you need to be shipping out to Amazon is 10 units of the 3 pack, you should put 10 units of the 3 pack ASIN into this inbound plan.
If you already know the lot numbers or expiry dates of your products, you can add them here. If not, don't worry - we'll take care of it when we're prepping your items. Don't worry about adding any services to your products here, the outbound team will take care of this when they prep your units.
