Inventory Profile Setup
Updated by Ash on 01 August 2017 05:07

'Inventory Profile' screen helps you to control quantities across the marketplaces. Under Settings-->Inventory-->Inventory Profile page we have the following options to control quantities under each of the selling venues:

Buffer Quantity: How many less from 'Quantity In Stock' you want to allocate for this selling venue.

Allocation In Percent: How much percent of 'Quantity In Stock' you want to allocate for this selling venue. If this column value is configured with value -2.00, we will not be able to feed qty for this selling venue.

Qty Not More Than: Only applicable for 'Allocation in Percent'. Allocated qty will not exceed this value even if the percentage of 'Quantity In Stock' is higher than this value.

What to do when out of stock for EBay: If 'Set to High' is selected, then price is raised to 9876.54 and when it's restocked, price is lowered back to original price. That way you maintain sold-history. Or other options in the drop down is to raise your price to 3/5/9 times when it's restocked, no stock and lower it back to original price.

Lead Time to Ship: Select Lead time to ship record by marketplace.
