Once Replenishment is calculated, there may be additional vendor rules such as Units of Measurement (UOM), Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ), or order limits (for Amazon warehouses) that need to be considered before creating a new Purchase Order.
Since Replenishment is calculated with your specific planning settings in mind, these rules are not considered in the metric. To see an adjusted Replenishment metric that considers shipment and vendor rules, you can add the "To Order" metric as a column using the gear icon in the top right of the Replenishment Report. Several related metrics can also be added to see "To Order" at Cost, Gross Revenue, or Profit.
Order limit will reflect the "maximum shipment quantity" from Amazon's restock report in your Seller Central account.
MOQ and UOM are also available columns that can be added to the Replenishment table. In the example below - the first Variant was rounded to the nearest case of 50 based on the UOM rule. The second Variant was rounded to 1,500 based on the MOQ rule.
Apply the "Above MOQ" Filter to focus only on Variants that meet your MOQ:
Once you select Variants using the checkboxes on the left in Replenishment and create a Purchase Order (using the purple button in the left), the "To Order" quantity is added to the order. An alert appears at the top right of the PO summarizing any Variants on the PO where the original Replenishment recommendation was adjusted.
- "To Order" does not currently consider MOQ by Product or Tier Prices. Only MOQ by Variant and UOM are considered.
- "To Order Cost" is based on the average Cost Price (if multiple vendors/costs are associated with the Variant).
- "Min/Max Stock" is already considered in the Replenishment recommendation since it is a warehouse rule, rather than a vendor rule.
