What is ship from store?

What is an order management system?

If you’re processing a high volume of online orders, keeping an overview of all your fulfilment processes and orders (from all channels) can be very hard. An order management system, or OMS, helps you with this.

An OMS automatically handles and tracks all your sales, orders, inventory and fulfilment cycles and gives you the overview and control that you need.
