About Inventory

DropStream supports inventory updates from the fulfillment provider to the sales platform. Inventory updates are a one way path:

Fulfillment Provider >> DropStream >> Sales Platform

DropStream is agnostic to inventory quantities in the sale platform; it is only aware of inventory updates received from the fulfillment provider. 

Update Conditions

DropStream will push inventory updates to the sales platform in two instances:

1. When DropStream receives an updated quantity for a SKU, DropStream will send that updated quantity to the sales platform for that SKU. 

2. If DropStream has not received an updated quantity from the fulfillment provider for a SKU in the previous 7 days, then DropStream will push an inventory update to the sales platform of the last quantity received from the fulfillment provider. 

By default, DropStream updates only those inventory items that have changed since the most recent sync

To update the inventory between a newly connected Store and Warehouse, you will first need to enable inventory sync. The default update interval is every 60 minutes, which you can change

Inventory View

The contents of the updated inventory are displayed in DropStream on the Inventory screen.
