Bonanza Troubleshooting Tips

Here are some common issues experienced by users, potential causes, and available troubleshooting tips.

Issue

How to troubleshoot or resolve

Error: Nullable object must have a value.

This error may occur when you are trying to import orders from Bonanza. It indicates that one or more of the required address fields on an order are not filled in.

Check your recent orders to ensure the customer's Ship To address is completed in full. Even if the address appears to be complete, we recommend you Edit it to ensure the address was entered properly. Some customers try to enter their entire address on Address Line 1.
