- Picking List w Images — Sorted by location. Includes images. With barcodes of your Warehouse IDs.
- Picking List by Order — Sorted by order. Includes order info, product info, and images. With barcodes of your Warehouse IDs and SC Order Numbers. Each order starts on a new page. The background behind every other product is grey to separate the products.

Printing a Pick List
1) Go to the Orders menu -> Manage Orders.
2) Search for Paid orders.
3) Select the orders you want to include in your pick list.
- You can use the Action checkbox to select all the orders.
4) Select one of the five pick list templates from the Actions drop down menu. Click Go.
- As a shortcut, you can print Pick Lists With no Images by clicking the Print Picking List button.
5) If you want to print packing slips, keep your orders selected, and click the Print Packing Slips button. For more info about using packing slips, see Creating and Editing a Packing Slip.
Using a Custom Order Status to Differentiate Orders You're Picking From New Orders
Here is a popular addition to the process of printing pick lists. It uses a custom Order Status to help you easily find new orders and exclude orders you've already printed pick lists for.
- To create a custom Order Status, see Creating and Using Custom Order Statuses.
1) The beginning of the process is the same as Steps 1 through 4 above:
- Search for Paid orders. Select the orders you want to include in your pick list. Select one of the pick list templates. Click the Print Picking List button.
2) While the products are still selected, use the Change Order Status drop-down to choose your custom status. We named ours Picked.
3) If you want to print packing slips at the same time, click the Print Packing Slips button.
4) When you're ready to pick more products, search for Paid orders again. You can check the Exclude sub-statuses box so only new Paid orders are found.
