Exporting goods-out notes

Exporting individual goods-out notes

Goods-out notes can be exported one by one as a CSV file.

To do so, enter the goods-out note, either by going into the fulfilled sale and clicking the link, or going to Sales > Goods-out notes > Due to Ship and finding it in the list.

Once inside the goods-out note, click the 'Export as CSV' link:


There is currently no way to export batches of goods-out notes in a single CSV file.

Tip: If you need to send goods-out notes to your 3PL company, the goods notes details can be retrieved via the API.
