Increase Your Bottom Line and Profitably Manage Your Inventory with The Edge
WHAT IT IS
Special Orders are a three-part process within The Edge.
Initial intake at Point of Sale (POS).
Receiving special order merchandise into inventory and matching it to the open order.
Final pickup at Point of Sale (POS).
WHAT IT DOES
Allows you to manage and track Special Orders every step of the way, from customer service, to inventory, and back to customer service.
You should Note these things when working with Special Orders:
Special Orders are not recorded as sales until time of pickup.
Commission is not rewarded on a Special Order until pickup.
Special Orders cannot be picked up until they are filled (readied for pickup).
When you attempt to pick up a Special Order but the pickup button is not lit, this is because the order has not been filled with an item.
Inventory ordered as part of a Special Order is treated differently as it pertains to the aging process and the Levels feature. For example, a Special Order item is often in your possession for a short period of time until it is picked up. This should not be confused with being a fast-seller.
