At this time, we are not currently developing new features or functionality for our Inventory solution. This means that at this time we cannot address the issues you have with the current system. However, we do expect that in 2022, we will be introducing a new and improved Inventory experience.
If you need an inventory solution that lets you add your third-party fulfillment provider to your account, our sister company ShipStation may be a better solution for you.
ShippingEasy’s Inventory Management solution gives you the tools you need to manage and track your inventory including stock replenishment. Lead Time is an important factor when it comes to determining how much stock to purchase when you reorder.
Lead Time is the number of days between when your supplier receives your purchase order and the inventory is delivered to you. Typically, it’s critical to factor in your expected sales during the lead time when creating a PO to ensure you have enough stock to fulfill all orders before you reorder inventory again.
Lead Time will be applied in one of two ways:
Universal Lead Time: If you set a Lead Time on the Inventory Settings page and there is not a Lead Time set on individual products, this Lead Time will be applied to all products.
Individual Lead Time: If you have set a Lead Time on an individual product page, this value will override the Universal Lead Time set.
Universal Lead Time is applied to all self-managed inventory saved to your PRODUCTS catalog.
Prepare a CSV file for your Products, with a column dedicated to "Lead Time". Learn more about which fields can be included in a CSV upload of Products. Within this column, note the Safety Stock value for each of your Product SKUs stored in your warehouse.
