Using SKULabs as a Master of Inventory with Stock Sync
When used as a Master of Inventory, SKULabs becomes the source of truth for inventory stock levels across sales channels and provides users control over nearly all aspects of their inventory management and fulfillment process.
When using SKULabs as a Master of Inventory with Stock Sync enabled, all changes made to inventory levels within SKULabs will be pushed out to and subsequently overwritten across your sales channels stores and occurs each time inventory levels change for a product including when stock is reserved on newly imported orders. All inventory changes must be made and monitored closely within SKULabs itself to ensure the best results and it is recommended to regularly monitor for new products and ensure you have the correct inventory recorded in SKULabs after any new listings sync imports.
Once correct on hand stock levels have been counted and set within SKULabs, users can enable Stock Sync to begin pushing those stock quantities back to the listings on their sales channels.
How is stock reserved and deducted from my inventory by orders in SKULabs?
SKULabs reserves stock quantities for items required to fulfill the orders on your processing table. As orders are processed, deductions for those orders must occur within SKULabs to ensure hand inventory levels in your warehouses remain accurate. To prevent overselling, these deductions should occur before an order becomes archived and reserves are released.
You can easily deduct orders in a number of ways:
Shipping within SKULabs normally using the default Per-shipment deduction method.
Scan-deducting items as you verify them across orders by enabling and using the Scan-based deduction method.
Using automation and shipping rules to trigger shipped orders to automatically deduct on their own (not universally compatible with all operations).
