I am new to Shiphero. Just wanted to understand how does the reserve inventory work.
I know there are several fields in a
warehouse_product to manage inventory:
The question is: What is the difference between
non_sellable_quantity? How do they affect to the
on_hand quantities? Do these last two change when you modify the first to ones?
I think maybe with an example it would be more clear to understand.
Welcome to our Community! Glad to have you with us!
on_hand is all the stock you have up for selling
available is the
on_hand minus the
allocated quantity (as those are saved for the orders that have them allocated)
reserve_inventory is what you want to save for a rainy day or keep in case of exchanges.
- We push to your connected store the
available minus the
reserve_inventory plus any stock that has
sell_ahead on your POs
non_sellable_quantity are items you don’t want to sell or can’t sell. These could be, for example, returns that were broken. The non-sellable is dictated by the item being in a non-sellable bin. If you transfer an item from a sellable bin to a non-sellable bin:
on_hand -1, `non_sellable_quantity1 +1
Please let me know if this helps.
Have a great day!
Thanks @tomasfd !
Ok you helped me a lot. So, when an item is transferred to a non-sellable bin, the
on_hand quantity decresases 1 unit, and
Just one more question:
When you refer to “push to your connected store”, you mean the Inventory Update Webhook? In that case, the quantity that is shown in the
inventory field, is equal to
The inventory update webhook will give you some, but not all, of those fields. What I mean by the push to your connected stores are sale points like Shopify. The webhook contains a field called
inventory, that shows the same amount we push to the stores.
Perfect! Thanks @tomasfd !
