When you want to remove your inventory from an Eshopbox, create a recall consignment request. You/Eshopbox create recall for

  • Good inventory because of slow-moving articles or subject to long-term storage

  • Bad inventory as they are not suitable for re-sale.

  • QC rejected as they do not pass QC check criteria. Eshopbox rejected them.

💡 You only need to request a recall of good inventory. For Non-sellable and QC rejected inventory, Eshopbox automatically creates a recall consignment.

This article will guide you step-by-step on how to recall your inventory from Eshopbox.

Step III - Scheduling Consignment

You schedule consignment to get an appointment for pickup. Scheduling consignment will help you to get the slot at your convenience. To schedule your consignment, provide the below information.

  • Select the date and time from the slots on which you would like to pick up the packed items. This will ensure a planned and smooth pick-up of items from the Eshopbox.

  • You require the document to schedule the pickup. You will use this for accounting. Documentation depends on the accounting model on which you enabled Eshopbox. If the accounting model is:
    - Billing: Eshopbox will provide an invoice.
    - Consignment model: You need to provide the document and ewaybill.

    Click submit.

💡 You can re-schedule your recall consignment in case you missed the pick-up.

Recalling of QC rejected/bad inventory

You need not create a recall request for QC rejected or bad inventory. The Eshopbox automatically creates a recall consignment for:

  • QC rejected: when you complete the inward consignment or Eshopbox initiates the packing processing of QC rejected items against the inward consignment.

💡 One recall consignment will have items of one inward consignment only.

  • Bad: at a regular frequency like weekly, twice a week, etc.
