Thread: Feature Request - Items with more than QTY of one, print in bold

  1. #1

    Default Feature Request - Items with more than QTY of one, print in bold

    Just a small request, but very helpful to stop errors. WOuld it be helpful for anyone else.

    We sell items mainly in single quantities, but sometimes people order more than one of an item. Most of the time we spot it, but occasionally it is missed and only one sent. A small adjustment would go some way to eliminating these errors

    Would it be possible for the items with a Qty greater than one to be printed in bold.

    ie

    Item
    Qty
    Price
    Subtotal

    Model: 630509349296Star Wars The Force Awakens Mission Series Action Figure 2-Packs Wave 1 - Obi-Wan and Commander Cody 1 13.95 13.95

    Model: 630509251834Star Wars Black Series Action Figures Wave 7 - Commander Wolffe 2 9.95 19.90

    Model: 630509251797Star Wars Black Series Action Figures Wave 7 - Captain Rex 1 9.95 9.95


    Becomes

    Model: 630509349296Star Wars The Force Awakens Mission Series Action Figure 2-Packs Wave 1 - Obi-Wan and Commander Cody 1 13.95 13.95

    Model: 630509251834Star Wars Black Series Action Figures Wave 7 - Commander Wolffe 2 9.95 19.90

    Model: 630509251797Star Wars Black Series Action Figures Wave 7 - Captain Rex 1 9.95 9.95

    As I say, only a small change, but with multiple quantities printed in bold it would stand out on the invoice, it should help eliminate any errors.

    I would like this also, we have to write in big red writing in the admin notes '2 items' etc. to stop this error, I also thought that somewhere on the invoice we print it could say 3 lines to process or something similar.

    For us it would be easier if actually the total order quantity was shown in big bold writing at the bottom of the order as part of a double check. I am not sure if this can already be done but will investigate

    Simple answer. Employ people that can read and count

    I have asked for this to be looked at/improved so many times. People can read and write... but it is so easily missed, especially when it is an item when a quantity of more than one is unusual.

    A big online retailer has a neat solution. They literally list it again on the invoice or dispatch note, so instead of saying:

    2 Edible Dog Card Happy Birthday
    1 Suitical Dog Recovery Vest

    It says

    Edible Dog Card Happy Birthday
    Edible Dog Card Happy Birthday
    Suitical Dog Recovery Vest

    or

    1 Edible Dog Card Happy Birthday
    1 Edible Dog Card Happy Birthday
    1 Suitical Dog Recovery Vest

    Absolutely no missing that.

    If your multiple quantities are generally upto 3 then I think this would be good, however if you regularly get orders of 5 or 10+ of a particular item this may end up being more confusing

    Yes, but as with everything, it could be optional.

    As an aside, what is a "suitical dog"?

    And which is the best "edible dog" breed?

    Could cause more problem with pickers quickly scanning the picking list, if you sell the same product but in different colours/sizes such as

    Product A green qty 8
    Product A blue qty 7
    Product A red qty 6

    or
    Product A green qty 8
    Product A green qty 8
    Product A green qty 8
    Product A green qty 8
    Product A green qty 8
    Product A green qty 8
    Product A green qty 8
    Product A green qty 8
    Product A blue qty 7
    Product A blue qty 7
    Product A blue qty 7
    Product A blue qty 7
    Product A blue qty 7
    Product A blue qty 7
    Product A blue qty 7
    Product A red qty 6
    Product A red qty 6
    Product A red qty 6
    Product A red qty 6
    Product A red qty 6
    Product A red qty 6

    The pickers would have to count each line and and colour/size variation, and look how long the list would be

    This is exactly what would happen to us - it would be a nightmare and our packing lists would turn into 5 or 6 pages per order

    Which is why just BOLDING the multipile quantity lines would be the simplest, cleanest solution.

    Well not really, because if most of lines in the order had more than 1 as a quantity,
    Then most of the lines in the order would be in Bold
    So would not stand out from the single quantity lines

    So why not just have somewhere on the page, this order contains 4 product, or under the total price, total number of product = 4, or why not let us print the admin comments onto the invoice, or delivery note, so that they can be read by staff, when picking and packing.

    It seems that everybody has different views on what they want but none seem any better than what is in place at the moment.

    We used to use software called Packing Partner for our BP shipments - at the time it was the best way to do integrated labels as BP didn't offer those at the time. Anyway, PP simply put a circle around quantities greater than one. It really made them stand out and was simple.

    Now that is a good, simple and effective idea!

    SO in that case, sites that are used to selling multiple quantities, wouldn’t need to use it, as they would it would be normal to check quantities on every order. This request is for those site that usually only sell one per SKU, but occasionally customers order more than one of a certain SKU.

    That would work. Bold, circle, anything to make them stand out. Bold or Circle would look neat and professional IMO
