Can ShippingEasy send Inventory Management updates to my store?

ShippingEasy also gives you the option to set up maximum quantity available. This means that your store will never show more stock than this level, regardless of actual available stock. It's a useful way to work within stock limits and create urgency. Learn more.

How do I fix my stock levels?

Updating initial stock levels is a critical step in accurate inventory tracking as it allows ShippingEasy to know the stock and accurately report levels when that product is sold individually or in a bundled product. You can also select to have ShippingEasy override stock levels on your store. Stock levels can be set one-by-one for individual products or uploaded for multiple products with a CSV file. Learn how to update stock levels.

NOTE: If an order is cleared on the ORDERS page, the inventory would be removed from committed inventory.

What will ShippingEasy update in my store if I choose to send product updates?

ShippingEasy will only update the stock levels in the store. Nothing else is updated to store.
