Raise Escalation Against Forward NPR via Whatsapp
Now, you can raise an escalation against Forward NPR (Non Pickup Reason) using whatsapp. This will enable you to raise escalation within real time to save your time in the process. Since communications are being sent to the phone number associated with the pick up address, you can escalate the shipment at any time and anywhere.
Auto Escalation: Shipments with courier dependent reasons like vehicle issues where the courier is at fault will be auto escalated for you.
There are three options on whats app in case of Pick up failure:
- Escalate now: If you click on escalate now, it will escalate the pick up ID and same will be reflected on the panel
- Reattempt Pickup: You Click on this button to reattempt your pickup by courier.
- Cancel pickup Attempt: Clicking on this button will cancel your pick up attempt for the next day. It is to be noted, it will not cancel your shipment.
Reverse NPR Got Improved
We enhanced the Reverse NPR (Non-Pickup Reasons) feature of our panel to reduce the turnaround time of your buyers by enabling them to take action directly via Whatsapp. There are two options for them in case of Reverse Pick up failures. They can either choose to Reattempt Pick up or Cancel pick up Attempt.
- Reattempt Pick up: Buyer clicks on this button to reattempt his pick up by courier.
- Cancel pick up Attempt: Clicking on this button will cancel the buyer’s pick up attempt for the next day. It is to be noted, it will not cancel his shipment.
We have also introduced a new tab for you to get a holistic view of all your failed reverse pick up exceptions. You can see the history of all your pick up attempts and the reason behind your pick up failures.

If your KYC status is not activated yet, then no effect will occur to status. But if the status is active, then the status will go back to pending again and the KYC document verification process will start again.
No More International Shipment Delay
In order creation flow, we introduced a new field named IGST Amount on the panel. Now, there will be no more shipment hold and delay because of the IGST amount. You can easily find your IGST amount on the panel if your IGST is paid.
Complete Returns for Unicommerce
We have built an end to end integration for fetching all the return orders from Unicommerce. This automated process will help Fulfillment sellers to close their buyer returns in Unicommerce automatically as soon as they are inwarded in our Fulfillment Centers.
Negative Inventory Updates
To get real time updates on the increase and decrease of inventory, now you can leverage the opt-in feature to add an endpoint in the settings.
Path for Negative Inventory: Shiprocket Fulfillment Seller Panel > Settings > Inventory Adjustment URL
This will help you to keep an easy track of your inventory to avoid any hassles. If there is any negative inventory update, you will be informed via webhook. Inventory status change can occur due to a Purchase Order, Return order or a stock transfer. If your inventory is in negative status, we will be sending an update to you.
