Orders Dash will be the dashboard that will import and display your orders from all marketplaces supported by Sku Grid and will allow you to update your items back to their default quantity after sales (if enabled). It checks for sales every 15 minutes! From your Orders Dash home page, you will be able to see all of your sales data for all of the marketplaces that you're selling on and using with Sku Grid. You'll be able to view the date of sale, customer name & address info, marketplace item links with matching supplier urls, tracking information, status of the order (i.e. pending, ordered, shipped, delivered, etc.), and much more. Orders Dash is FREE** for all active, paid members of Sku Grid.
As an added bonus, Sku Grid has integrated with the Spot-N-Paste chrome extension to help you automate your order processing. If you're a Spot-N-Paste subscriber and you have the extension enabled, you'll be able to view all of your customer's address information right from the main Orders Dashboard page. There will be a Copy button that when clicked will copy your Buyer's name and address information and take you to your supplier item url. That way, all you have to do is click the Copy Button, add the item to Cart and go! It doesn't get much easier than that!
If you do not already have a Spot-N-Paste account, you can create an account HERE and your first 3 days of your subscription are free!
