In the event of the consignment being an international shipment, it can be mandatory to supply an Invoice Number to the Shipping Agent’s API in order for it to be successful. To aid this we have removed the option to post Shipment Only for Export warehouse shipments. On posting the only default option will be Ship & invoice.

In addition to shipping and invoicing, the system will update the consignment with the resulting Sales Invoice No. automatically.

If you don’t ship and invoice, and the shipment is posted, you will need to

  • Find the sales order and post the invoice or create a sales invoice, get shipments lines and then post the invoice

  • Find the consignment and add the invoice number

Success when posting and the Create Consignment and Submit Consignment flags are set on is a message similar to the following and a printed label(s).
