Tracking inventory when drop-shipping


#1

When products are drop-shipped (automatically or manually) does this affect how inventory levels are updated? Do I still need to maintain a list of warehouses and then update SKU levels for each warehouse using request PUT /product/SKU/warehouse/WAREHOUSE_ID/ request?

Hi,

Drop shipments are assumed to come from an external supplier’s warehouse, so we do not track drop shipped inventory changes internally. If you need to track inventory based on a supplier’s warehouse, you’ll need to create a warehouse for that supplier and update manually as you’ve been doing.

Hope that helps!
