SuiteCommerce sites support Cross-Subsidiary Fulfillment for OneWorld accounts.

With Cross-Subsidiary Fulfillment, users can order an item from a subsidiary website regardless of inventory level at that subsidiary as long as there is sufficient inventory to fulfill the order at a related subsidiary. The inventory available to the customer equals the inventory level at the subsidiary with the highest quantity of an item. It is not a combined total of inventory for the item at all subsidiary locations.

Examples:

Scenario One

  • Subsidiary One has 15 blue widgets in inventory.

  • Subsidiary Two has 25 blue widgets in inventory.

Customer on Subsidiary One website wants to order 10 blue widgets. The order is fulfilled from Subsidiary One because there is sufficient inventory at that location to fulfill the order.

Scenario Two

  • Subsidiary One has 15 blue widgets in inventory.

  • Subsidiary Two has 25 blue widgets in inventory.

Customer on Subsidiary One website wants to order 20 blue widgets. The order is fulfilled from Subsidiary Two.

Scenario Three

  • Subsidiary One has 15 blue widgets in inventory.

  • Subsidiary Two has 25 blue widgets in inventory.

Customer on Subsidiary One website wants to order 30 blue widgets. The order is not fulfilled because neither subsidiary has 30 blue widgets in inventory (even though the two subsidiaries have a combined total of 40 blue widgets in inventory).
