This feature allows you to set a date in the future which you know you will have inventory for an item.
Normally, when a listing has 0 QTY, a customer is unable to place an order for it. This feature allows for customers to place orders for a product in advance of you actually having the inventory on hand. This is not the same as a "pre-order" feature on Amazon.
LM will NOT send future dated inventory to non-Amazon channels.
Select Future Dated Inventory from the Inventory drop-down menu.
Click on Add New Item.
A quick description of this page.
1. Select the SKU of the product you want to add future inventory.
2. Select the source for which the inventory will come from.
3. Enter the amount of product you will be receiving.
4. Select the date that this product will be available.
And that's it!
Note. LM will only send future dated inventory for a SKU IF that SKU has 0 QTY in LM.
Advanced (component) SKUs cannot be set up with future-dated inventory.
