Custom Rules

Custom rules in Linnworks refer to the ability to create and apply specific rules or automation workflows to various aspects of your e-commerce operations. These rules are customizable and can be tailored to suit your business’s specific needs.

They allow you to save time and reduce manual work by automating various tasks and decisions, ultimately improving your efficiency and accuracy in managing your e-commerce business. The specific capabilities and features of custom rules may evolve over time, so it’s a good idea to refer to official documentation or support resources for the most up-to-date information.

Some common use cases for custom rules:

Inventory Management:

Create rules to automatically adjust stock levels, reprice products, or allocate inventory to specific sales channels based on predefined criteria.

  • Repricing: Create rules to automatically adjust product prices based on factors like competitor pricing, profit margins, or sales channel-specific requirements.
  • Inventory Allocation: Automate the allocation of stock to different sales channels or warehouses based on predefined criteria.
  • Low Stock Alerts: Set up rules to generate alerts or notifications when product quantities fall below a specified threshold.

Order Processing:

Custom rules can automate the order processing workflow, including order routing, prioritization, and order splitting based on various factors like shipping method, location, or product type.

  • Order Routing: Define rules to route orders to specific locations or teams within your organization for fulfillment.
  • Order Prioritization: Prioritize orders based on factors like shipping method, customer location, or order value.
  • Order Splitting: Automatically split orderswhen certain conditions are met, such as shipping items separately or fulfilling from multiple locations.

Pricing and Listing:

Rules can be set up to dynamically adjust product prices based on market conditions, competitor pricing, or your desired profit margins. You can also create rules for listing products on different sales channels, making sure they meet each channel’s specific requirements.

  • Product Listing: Define rules to list products on different sales channels, ensuring they meet the specific requirements of each platform.
  • Dynamic Pricing: Implement rules to adjust product prices dynamically in response to changes in market conditions or competitive pricing.

Customize rules to generate reports or send notifications when specific events or conditions occur in your e-commerce operations. For example, you can receive alerts when a product is running low in stock.

  • Report Generation: Automate the generation of reports to monitor various aspects of your e-commerce business.
