Inventory is one of the most important aspects of using Listing Mirror to it’s full potential! As expected, there are a lot of things to consider when handling inventory for multiple channels, here are some of the most important points to keep in mind.
Where does your quantity come from? Listing Mirror has what we call the Listing Source, which is a marketplace listing that we will consider the “source of truth” regarding new information. The most important part of that is Source Listing Inventory, which will determine when we do and don’t overwrite quantity when a new marketplace listing is imported.
Updating your quantity in Listing Mirror is important, since we will be the source of inventory for your non-FBA listings. There are two ways you can update quantity. You can manually update it in the interface, or you can update it in bulk using a spreadsheet.
Quantity Change After Cancellation
Another important thing to remember is what happens to Quantity After it’s Cancelled. What do we do with your quantity after you cancel an order from the marketplace vs. when you cancel an order from Listing Mirror.
Kitting and Bundling
Kitting and Bundling is a powerful tool that can allow you to manage your kits and multi-item listings with ease.
What Causes Quantity Changes
Another important thing to know, is exactly what causes your quantity to change and how you can see those changes.
Relating to how you can see those changes, Inventory History is an important tool that can help you understand exactly what is going on with your products at all times!
Third Party Provider Interaction
3PL QTY is quantity you have at a fulfillment center like Amazon FBA or Deliverr.
Understanding how your inventory works within Listing Mirror is important, and learning Why negative QTY happens can help you stay ahead of the curve.
Max QTY is an option that allows you to limit the amount of units we’re showing on a market place.
Similar to Max QTY, Holdback QTY allows you to further control how many units we’re showing on a marketplace.
