Consignment

Consignment is based on a warehouse/zone supply and sale. It's only possible if the consignment zone is configured without locations. This means all products need a GTIN/EAN.

Create a new zone

Create a zone in an existing warehouse or a new warehouse, representing the consignment.

Customer Attributes

Create two customer attributes in Magento.

  • consignment_type type:dropdown, options: supply,sale
  • consignment_zone type:text

Supply the Consignment zone

To supply the consignment zone create a customer and set the attributes:

  • consignment_type : supply
  • consignment_zone : the consignment zone

Do not use a customer with this settings to create a normal sale.

Any order placed using this customer, with these settings, result in a move from the picking zone to the chosen consignment zone. It will not reduce the inventory!

Sale from the Consignment zone

To sell from the consignment zone create a customer and set the attributes:

  • consignment_type : sale
  • consignment_zone : the consignment zone

Any order placed using this customer, with these settings, result in a sell from the consignment zone. It will automatically reduce the consignment zone inventory, without picking or packing!
