What is B2B bulk return?
B2B return implies the returns in bulk. In business operating on the JIT model or SOR model, the seller buys items in bulk from the vendor and then returns in bulk all the rejected items. These returns are consolidated on a daily or weekly basis depending on the order volume. One slot of return may contain orders fulfilled against a number of Purchase Orders.
How is B2B return different from B2C returns?
- B2B return is in bulk hence segregating items Sale Order wise is a cumbersome process.
- B2B returns are generally through a gate pass so the vendor is not aware of the expected returns, till he sees the list of all the items returned.
- The amount of the returned items is adjusted against future orders hence credit note is of great importance for the seller.
- In order to reduce their work of consolidating multiple credit notes, few sellers find it easy to create just one credit note against the gatepass.
- Since the return is in bulk, at times those items are received which do not belong to the vendor. The vendor needs to segregate them and needs to identify the missed items. The customer would send back the missed items and take the wrongly delivered items through a buyback PO.
Uniware Currently has two major B2B marketplaces –
- Myntra 2. AJIO
Apart from these two, the sellers may have B2B orders through their website or through any other channel (which they would manually punch in uniware).
Traceability: None, SKU
In case of bulk returns constituting items from multiple sale orders, instead of segregating the items order-wise and then processing returns, the sellers can now club multiple CIRs to one reference ID and take returns against this reference ID. They can also print credit notes for all these CIRs with one click.
