Creating Order Rules
DropStream features a robust custom rules engine that allows you to tailor your integration to match unique workflows. One of these rules, the Order Shipping Description Transformer Rule, is required to map the Shipping Descriptions offered by the Merchant in their e-commerce system to those available in your warehouse management system.
