Inventory Source for Online Channels

Overview

Inventory source for online channels is configured in two places:

  • Channel – which will be the default for all items in the channel catalog. But it can be overridden by
  • Each SKU in the channel catalog which can decide what quantity will be pushed to the online channel.

Configuring your Inventory Source on Channels and Channel Catalog

  1. Inventory Source: Choose the facility(ies) from which you want to push inventory on to your Online channel. If you select multiple facilities, the sum total will be picked.
  2. Please select the default policy to be used to push inventory to this channel
  • If you want to push the actual inventory at one or more facilities that you have chosen for Online sales, click on ‘Actual Inventory’.
  • If you only want to push a certain number of items from that facility, click on ‘Fixed Inventory’. You will be asked to provide the exact inventory count you want pushed to Amazon.
  • Inventory Range‘ is a variation of fixed inventory where you can set a Ceiling and Floor value and actual inventory, when in that range will be updated to the channel. Else either the Ceiling (if inventory > ceiling) or the Floor (if Inventory < Floor) will be pushed.

Examples:

  1. Inventory held in facility: 3 , Ceiling : 10 ,  Floor : 5 -> Qty sent to Channel: 5
  2. Inventory held in facility: 12 , Ceiling : 10 ,  Floor : 5 -> Qty sent to Channel: 10
  3. Inventory held in facility: 7 , Ceiling : 10 ,  Floor : 5 -> Qty sent to Channel: 7
  • You can also push the available quantity+ Expected Inbound purchase order quantity + Expected Inbound transfer order quantity.

Example :

  • Inventory available in the facility: 10
  • Purchase order quantity: + 3
  • Inbound transfer order quantity : + 5

===========================================

Then the quantity that will show in your channel = 18.
