How can we help?
Order Holding Period
The order holding period is an optional time buffer between downloading orders from your channel and passing fulfillments to your shipping solution. Use this setting to allow time for fraud checks, address updates, line item changes, etc.
Account Level SettingTo set at the account level, go to Settings > General > Fulfillment Settings > Order Holding Period.
Channel Level Setting
To set at the channel level, go to Integrations > Channels > Settings > Order Holding Period.
To remove the Earliest Release date, you can manually release a fulfillment, making it immediately available over the API for pickup by your shipping solution.
Note: While Earliest Release prevents your 3PL from seeing the fulfillment, it does not block routing or any other automated process.
