Warehouses (form)




View information about a specific warehouse. You can also create a new warehouse or change information for an existing warehouse.

  • Unspecified – No profile activity is specified for items.

  • Basic – Sell or purchase items without any limits.

  • Commission agent – The commission agent sells items in his or her name on behalf of the company (principal). The commission agent receives a commission in exchange for selling the items and is responsible for the price calculations for the end customers.

  • Principal's agent – The agent of the company (principal) sells items that belong to the company but is not responsible for the calculations that are performed for the end customers.
