What is your second biggest B2B eCommerce Challenge? Multiple Ship Tos

In large business-to-business (B2B) transactions, it’s fairly typical for a business customer to have multiple locations where they need to ship products. A good example is a construction company that has multiple active jobs and needs supplies sent to those jobs.

With xTupleCommerce, your customers can log into your eCommerce site and manage the shipping locations for specific orders. First, they would start by adding items to their cart, continue to check out, and then choose the appropriate "Ship To" location for the order. The system is directly connected to their customer record in their xTuple ERP, so if they have multiple ship-to locations set up in the ERP, they can choose which address the order should ship to.

Additionally, if they need to add more ship-tos to their account, they can do so from their customer profile, and the information will be saved to their customer record in the ERP.


As I promised, this is the next in a series of blog posts that introduces you to the xTupleCommerce system. Look for more upcoming information, and please don’t hesitate to contact me and the xTuple Web Services Group (WSG) team with questions.
