Allocation (Product Rationing)

If your business often encounters a situation where there is not enough stock on hand to satisfy multiple orders (e.g. if there are supply chain issues and difficulty buying stock in a timely fashion), you may wish to allocate portions of the available stock across different customers so that they at least receive some of each product.

To do this, click the “Allocate” button on the Fulfillment (Unfulfilled Sales Orders) page (Note: this is not available if you have set “Fulfill Fully Satisfiable Orders First” to Yes on the Settings page).

You will see a row for each product with active unfulfilled sales orders. Click “Allocate” on each row to ration the product across customers, using a percentage for each.
