Product Update Prepare for Peak

Welcome to our latest product update, preparing for peak. We’re constantly looking to improve the Linnworks platform and we understand how important the peak period is for sellers across the globe to get right.

This is why we’ve made improvements to features, released new products and created some important resources to help you not only navigate the busy peak period, but excel. We’ve made innovations and upgrades across our entire service.

Boost productivity for peak and beyond

Automate repeatable tasks. New feature available in beta.

Action Chains allows you to configure a set of actions to happen in sequence and only on orders that meet specific criteria. This functionality helps to speed up and automate order processing as well as reduce possible human errors. 

Join the waitlist! Current users can email to get on the waitlist.

Automate fulfilment decisions

Fulfilment Networks.

  • Create groups of locations and arrange locations in order of priority sequence. 
  • Automatically route orders to the correct fulfilment locations based on stock availability.
  • If there is no stock in the first stock location, the system will automatically route the orders to the next most appropriate fulfilment location.
  • You can also configure automation rules to make the system automatically determine which orders need to be routed to respective fulfilment networks.
  • Get access! Email to get access to Fulfilment Networks
With Linnworks, everything is integrated automatically and linked together. All we need to do is press a button and then it’s out the door. There could be 10,000 orders the next day, and they’re still going to be processed.

Founder, RC Geeks.

Enhance your buyers experience

Introducing BOPIS : Manage collection orders for both Shopify and Amazon in Linnworks. 

BOPIS (Buy online, pickup in store) is a service that allows buyers to place orders online and then go to the store/warehouse to pick them up instead of waiting for orders to be delivered. In Shopify, this service is called local pickup for online orders. BOPIS benefits:

  • Update order status as Ready for Collection in Linnworks, which will mark the order as Ready for Pickup on Shopify and Amazon.
  • Filter orders using the Collection identifier.
  • Advertise your BOPIS locations’ inventory availability on the respective Shopify and Amazon stores.

What do you like best about Linnworks?

As a sole trader who works alone, I need to find time savings wherever I can especially in peak periods. Linnworks does precisely that.

Linnworks has also helped Buy Wholefoods Online when it comes to growth and handling a bigger capacity because it’s scalable. Arthur mentions, “If we get twice as busy [during], for example, peak periods, I know Linnworks can handle it. I’m confident that it just works and is reliable.”

Rinkit has been able to automate a number of manual tasks to improve day to day business efficiency. Certain daily tasks, such as sorting through orders, have been removed from the process entirely, making the team more efficient and able to cope with the large volume of orders coming in each day, as well as the influx in sales over peak periods.
