Available Properties

shipping properpties general

Using properties for IFS Global Logistics allows you to allocate various specifics to either an item or order level. 

  • Item Property Mapping is used to allow the submission of additional specific data from a Linnworks inventory item to the courier during the request for a shipping label.
  • Order Property Mapping is used to allow the submission of additional specific data from a Linnworks order to the courier during the request for a shipping label.

There are extra details that may be required by IFS Global Logistics that are not a standard field in Linnworks. As such, to make use of these properties they will need to be added as extended properties on Linnworks and then mapped to the appropriate property in the IFS Global Logistics integration. For information on creating/ using extended properties please see the linked guide.

For international shipment, country of manufacture and HS code must be tied to inventory via extended properties. All item and order extended property types must be set to Attribute.
