Setting Up Facilities

Jazva Support Team -

Learn how to set up facilities and warehouses in Jazva.



A facility is a physical location that stores your inventory. Facilities may or may not process shipments. Each system user, such as an admin or warehouse employee, is assigned a default facility, so at least one “Main” facility has to be defined, even if if you do not process any physical inventory.


Jazva recognizes 3 types of facilities, including:

  1. Warehouse - a distribution facility that houses inventory and fulfills orders or transfers inventory to other facilities.
    • Receives, stores and ships inventory to customers.
    • Processes internal inventory transfers.
    • Processes returns.
    • Inventory is tracked at bin level (if needed).
  2. Retail - a retail location that houses inventory sold in-store only. Online orders do not pick; inventory from Retail facilities and their inventory counts are not pushed to channels.
    • Assigned to one retail location.
    • Receives, stores and transfers inventory internally.
    • Inventory is NOT tracked at bin level.
  3. External - 3rd-party facilities that house inventory. Online orders do not pick inventory from External facilities and their inventory counts are not pushed to channels.
    • Owned and operated by 3rd-party (e.g. Amazon FBA).
    • Receives internal transfers.
    • Tracks remote inventory.
    • Inventory is NOT tracked at bin level.

Jazva uses facilities to automatically select the best warehouse for each shipment, based on inventory levels and the customer’s location. All inventory transactions will be associated to a warehouse with a physical address.

You can also set up business hours for each facility that will act as a cut-off time for shipments. These work hours can be used on your Jazva web store to inform customers of shipping times based on order placement (For example, you can say, “Ships today if ordered within the next 30 minutes”).

Amazon FBA external facilities are created automatically when you add an Amazon FBA channel. This is a virtual warehouse and is used to transfer inventory between your physical warehouses and Amazon’s warehouses where your FBA orders will be fulfilled directly by Amazon. To learn more, please visit Setting Up an Amazon FBA Channel.

Editing Your First Facility
Your Jazva instance comes with a default warehouse facility (Main WH) to help you onboard faster. We’ll need you to fill out some details to make sure everything is in order.

  1. From the main menu, go to Setup and select Facilities.
  2. Click on MAIN WH under the Name column. 
  3. In the Facility section, update the text fields and options.
    • Name – Rename the facility or leave it as default.
    • Code – Give your facility a code for your own record, or leave it as default.
    • Type – Select the type of facility. This will most likely be a warehouse.
    • Priority – Set the priority rank order. The facility’s ranking number will determine the order from which facility the system would first pick inventory from. Setting a lower number will increase its prioritization, as the highest priority is 1. The default is 100.
    • Reorder Weight - Reorder weight is used to distribute inbound purchase orders across your warehouses. Enter a percentage in this field if you wish to utilize this feature. For more information, please visit Distributing a PO Across Multiple Warehouses.
    • Manufacturing - enable this if you would like to use Jazva’s light manufacturing features. please visit Light Manufacturing Support.
