Third-party-billing contacts are used in 3PL Warehouse Manager to define the contact information of a third-party who is billed for the freight charges on an order. Please be aware that 3rd-Party-Billing is typically used for pallet in/out workflows and large shipments that require Bills of Lading.
This article reviews how to add and edit third-party-billing contacts. The contact information defined on this page is included on the Bill of Lading when shipping third-party for one of the established contacts.
Navigate to Orders > Shipping Setups.
Click Manage 3rd-Party-Billing Contacts.
Select a customer from the drop-down menu. A list of all third-party billing contacts for the specified customer will display in the grid.
To add a new third-party billing contact in the system, click Add. Fill out the contact information using the appropriate fields. Note that fields with a red asterisk (*) are required. Once complete, click Save. The new third-party billing contact will display in the grid.
When preparing the package export file or generating a Bill of Lading, the system will match the account number in the order with the account numbers in the customer's third-party billing contacts. If a match is found, the system puts the contact information in the 'BillTo' fields of the export file or the third-party-billing contact on the Bill of Lading.
To edit an existing third-party billing contact, select the contact from the grid, then click Edit. Make your changes, then click Save.
