Frequently Asked Questions
How does Jazva handle Shopify POS orders?
When you set up your Shopify channel, you can configure Jazva to manage web orders, POS orders, or both, by selecting an option from the “Type of Orders Handled” dropdown menu.
For the POS orders to sync properly, the channel must have only one facility. If there is more than 1 facility associated with the Shopify channel, POS orders will be imported as regular Pending orders, and they will reserve stock from the best possible facility for this order.
Does Jazva’s Shopify channel support Amazon Multi-Channel Fulfillment (MCF)?
MCF can be used for Shopify web orders, but not for POS orders.
