Q. How can I fulfill some items from my warehouse, and some from Shipwire?
A. The best way to handle this is with Shipwire Anywhere. With Shipwire Anywhere, you can load the details about your own warehouse (location, inventory, box sizes available, etc) into Shipwire, so we are able to route orders to your own warehouse instead of Shipwire warehouses, based on logic you determine. You will then be able to fulfill orders out of your own warehouse using the Shipwire interface, including printing shipping labels. See our Shipwire Anywhere page for more details.
