This article covers inventory management across multiple locations within Stock&Buy.
By default, Stock&Buy manages inventory from one single pool. While single location based inventory management fits most businesses, it quickly becomes indispensable when you scale out.
To track and allocate inventory across multiple pools of stock, add inventory locations:
Add Inventory locations
Follow the steps below to add new locations to your account:
- Go to your Account settings
- Under the locations are located under the Organization tab
- Click Add location
- Specify whether the location will hold inventory or not (this settings can not be changed after a location is created)
- Click Save and Close
This operation might take a few moments as the system will create location bins for all inventory items.
When you first join Stock&Buy, two default locations will automatically be created for you. The first one holds inventory and is your default warehouse, the second location does not hold inventory and is considered your business HQ. You can set both locations to have the same address if your HQ is the same as your default warehouse.
