- The standard Actions you can take on each order are as follows:
- No Action - will leave the order on the page after saving the changes
- Ship with email - will remove the order from your Ship page; update the order status to Processed on AOB; send a confirmation to the originating venue, if automated confirmations are accepted on that venue and will send a Confirmation Email based on the template you've selected in Shipping Settings.
- Ship no email - will remove the order from your Ship page, update the order status to Processed in AOB and send a confirmation to the originating venue, if automated confirmations are accepted on that venue.
- Move to history - will remove the order from your ship page and from your Sales Stats so that its total is no longer included in your Earnings totals.
- Move to On Hold - will remove the order from your Ship page and relocate it to your Hold list which has all the standard Actions of the Shipping page.
- Move to Aux Hold - will remove the order from your Ship page and relocate it to your Aux Hold list which has all the standard Actions of the Shipping page.
- Some venues (like ABE) which allow per-title status changes will display extra Actions to be selected here and affect all titles in this order.
- Use the actions below the Title in the Title column to override this action for a particular title.
- Create MCF - if you have FBA enabled in AOB you will see this link on your orders that are for FBA items that have been ordered on other sites. This will allow you to pass the order data to Amazon for fulfillment.
- If for any reason Amazon does not accept the order data the order will display in your On Hold list with the Amazon Error message in the Comments section.
- When Amazon sends notification that the order has been shipped, the confirmation, including tracking, is sent to the selling site and your order in AOB will be moved to a Processed status.
