Note: While creating Sale Order, enter the same SKU Code on which we have imported the Tolerance imports .


6- Once we have successfully created the order, the Sale Order Item corresponding to the Sale Order should have Dispatch Tolerance Value which we have defined .

Whenever inventory will be synced to the Channel at that time only that inventory will be synced whose effective Dispatched Tolerance Value (e.g. 30 or more than 30 days) we have defined through the import.

Points to be noted:

  • It has been made compulsory by Government of India to display the expiry date of the products on the website for all expire able items.
  • It is recommended that the items dispatched to the customers have an expiry date that is equal to or greater than this one.
  • It is now possible to define tolerances at the channel and customer levels based on the number of days / percentage. The tolerance will not be used to determine when products will expire.
