Gestation is the amount of time that an order sits (and can still be changed by you) after it has been placed via your shop, but before it is workable by the Whiplash facility. Once the order has moved out of the gestation period, it is no longer possible to modify the order.
Note: It is important that you are confident you have set an appropriate gestation time for your business.
Set the Order Gestation Time
- Once you have signed into your Whiplash account, click on your name in the upper right corner.
- Select Preferences from the drop down.
- From the General tab, scroll down to the Orders section.
- Under, "How long should we wait before shipping an order?" enter the number of hours desired for gestation.
