Web Store Stock Control

Shopify Location & Quantities:

AccountEdge has the ability to define for each item the default location that Shopify Orders are shipping from, and define how the inventory management is synced with Shopify. There are two different sections that the item locations are divided into:

  • Shopify Locations & Quantities: There are two subsections to Shopify Locations & Quantities
    • Default Location: This is the default location AccountEdge will pull inventory from if you sync with Shopify. So if Shopify needs 5 items on the Web Store, it will take it from the default location you have selected.
    • AccountEdge Reserved Quantity: This is to reserve a specific amount in AccountEdge. Once the reserved amount is reached, it will no longer sync anymore quantity up to Shopify.
  • General Locations & Quantities: This is the locations for use in AccountEdge. It allows you to choose the default location for when you receive inventory in, and also the default location it should come out of when you sell the item.
