That's it! From there you can test the system and begin populating fulfillment data as needed.
A. No. Our store import will do that for you. Depending on the size of your store, this can take anywhere from five minutes to a few hours. The amount of time it takes to publish your store in Yahoo is a good indicator of how long the import will take.
A. Yes, you can choose to re-import and update your store products at any time.

A. Cactus Complete Commerce Order Management can be populated with fulfillment information as orders come in to get you using the system as quickly as possible!
Our revolutionary Missing Data Queue will allow you to see what information is required to fulfill orders that have come into the system. You can fill in the needed information once you get an order for that product.
There is no point in spending months filling out spreadsheets if the store's product is never purchased or if it delays using the system until the information is out of date. Cactus Complete Commerce Order Management simplifies data maintenance to allow you to provide "need to know" data.
A. Cactus Complete Commerce Order Management has separated the data you need to receive e-commerce and phone orders from the information needed to fulfill the orders.
You can quickly get up and running to take and receive orders. Missing Data alerts you to any orders that are missing information needed to fulfill them, such as cost of goods, which drop shipper to submit the order to, etc. This allows you to deal with only items that have been sold for a quicker start into the system.
A. Yes, we have included bulk update tools to help you assign products to the right fulfillment agent and populate needed information. In fact you can view all items that need information at any time in the system from the Data Maintenance Queue. This will give you instant visibility to items that were added to the store but not set for fulfillment in Cactus Complete Commerce Order Management. This is particularly useful in maintaining the system on an ongoing basis. You can always easily see what information is needed.

A. These types of options are considered non-inventory options that do not effect the actual product being shipped. This helps eliminate irrelevant combinations of options and minimize data maintenance as much as possible. You can omit certain option names and values when creating your combination of options in Cactus Complete Commerce Order Management.
A. Yes, you can actually have multiple drop shippers and warehouses for each item that you sell and prioritize which to fulfill from based on availability.
