Getting started with Amazon

Part 4: Managing Amazon orders with Zenstores

Zenstores also has a number of tools and features that can be used for order management to further improve your packing and dispatch process. Within your Zenstores account you will be able to create multiple users for one account, assign orders to team-mates, flag orders and sort them, add team notes and manual customer notes.

Setting up team members in Zenstores

If your ecommerce company has multiple employees then it will be useful to set them up as separate users on your Zenstores account. You’re able to set up as many users on your Zenstores account as you like, each with their own login details, and then assign orders to different users and add notes to orders for them. It’s also possible to manage what team members can access by managing your team’s permissions.

Adding a team member:

  1. Within your Zenstores account hover over ‘Settings’ in the top right hand corner. Then select ‘Teammates’.

With different team members set up on your Zenstores account you can organise orders and split the workload by assigning orders to different members of staff.


Assigning orders:

  1. In the New orders list you will find an ‘Assign new team member’ icon on the right hand side of each order.
