SKULabs provides you with full control over quantity advertised on your stores through customizable stock rules.

What is a stock rule?

Stock rules are math formulas used to calculate the "available" inventory we send to your sales channel. Your default stock rule is set to "free" which is equal to "on hand" (on the shelf) minus your "reserved" (orders that require shipment).

In many scenarios you may need to customize your stock rule to prevent overselling, disable stock sync for individual listings, or other reasons. The available variables to create custom stock rule are on_hand, reserved, free, and fba.

How do I update my stock rules?

Each sales channel and each of your listings have a stock rule setting. A store's stock rule setting is the default rule and will be used for each listing which has not been overridden by a custom individual rule.
