Creating inbound shipments

To create an inbound shipment,

  1. Go to and log in with your Shipvine username and password, if prompted.
  2. In the black bar at the top of the screen, click Inventory > Inbound Shipments.
  3. At the bottom of the page, click the blue "New Inbound Shipment" button.
  4. In the "Merchant Identifier" box, enter a name, purchase order, or other identifying mark that'll appear on the packages. This helps associate the right physical shipment with the appropriate inbound shipment.
  5. In the "Date Expected" field, enter a date that you suppose the shipment will arrive. It doesn't have to be perfect, but getting it in the right range helps us sort things out if you have a lot of inbound shipments coming our way.
  6. If you have a tracking number for one of the packages in the shipment, you can paste that in the "Tracking No" field. It can help us out if you have a lot of inbound shipments coming our way, but it's not required.
  7. Tell us what you're sending us by filling out the "Lines" section.
    • You can manually type them in by pressing the "Add Line" button. In the row that appears, type your SKU in the "Merchant Identifier" column, and type the quantity in the "Quantity" column. Repeat as necessary.
    • You can add a whole bunch of items at once by clicking the "Quick Paste" button. A dialog box pops up. If you have an Excel spreadsheet with two columns, one for the merchant identifier (SKU) and one of the quantity, then you can highlight the data in your Excel spreadsheet and copy and paste it into the "Quick Paste" dialog box. Then click the blue "Process" button.
  8. Click the blue "Save" button.
