Available to sell (ATS) from stock
As you work within your Stitchex account, inventory levels are constantly monitored and any changes are immediately synced to your Shopify account.
In Stitchex, your excess inventory (not destined for any wholesale customer) is known as your "available" inventory. You can view these levels on the Available by SKU Report page.
Because "available" includes pending production (stock that you haven't yet received from your manufacturer), Stitchex keeps track of an additional level, "available from stock" which doesn't include this pending production. This is the quantity you can immediately send to your online customers. You can view currently "available to sell from stock" levels on the Available from stock by SKU (available from stock) report page.
Essentially, the Available field shown on the Product's SKU tab is a calculated value. Available takes the Stock, adds in the Awaiting and subtracts the Committed. (Available= Stock + Awaiting - Committed).
The Available from Stock field shown on the SKU tab is also a calculated value. Available from Stock takes the Stock and subtracts the Committed. (Available from Stock = Stock - Committed).
Alternatively, by editing your Shopify integration settings, Stitchex lets you sync your entire in-stock quantities to Shopify. You may want to do this if you want to prioritize online orders over your wholesale order book. When you sell in this way, you may need to cancel or reduce quantities from wholesale orders before they are shipped. When you create pick tickets for wholesale orders, Stitchex will tell you what is available in your inventory.
Incoming online orders
Stitchex watches for new orders on your Shopify store and immediately adjusts inventory downwards for ordered products. Your "stock" inventory levels in Stitchex will reduce and consequently the "available" inventory levels will also reduce.
You'll also be able to see a "Shopify Order" grouped inventory adjustment on the Update Inventory page, as well as individual (SKU level) adjustments in the inventory change log.
