Create Allocation Event Order
An order can be created in the POS, and assigned into an allocation event. Use this option if a customer is purchasing additional products that are not available in the allocation event, or if you need to exceed the allocated quantities, or if an alternative ship or pickup method is required that is not available in the path-to-purchase.
Note: The easiest way to place an allocation order for a customer is to use the Allocation auto-login link from the ACP, which will directly log you into the personal allocation store. This allows you to guide the customer through their own store experience step-by-step, or complete the order for them, while automatically linking the order to the corresponding tier and event. For more information, get instructions in this article.

Select Ship or Pickup Options
Click the customer name to open the customer card and review the club subscription settings, to confirm the shipto address or pickup preference. (If creating a ship order, most club orders do not have a specified ship date, and will remain in an unshipped status.)
