Below are the available import options:

  • Import Inventory Adjustments — You can easily adjust the physical quantity of a product when needed. For example, if a product was damaged in the warehouse, you simply adjust the inventory to reflect one less by entering -1. If you found more inventory that was previously not entered, you would adjust the quantity accordingly to show more.
  • Import Manual Reserves — You can set aside an inventory amount to be used for a selected channel or customer when orders come in. This inventory amount is called product inventory reserve. The reserve has a specific quantity and a time period during which it is active. While active, the reserved amount is deducted from the sellable inventory. Incoming orders will deduct from that reserved amount with priority.
  • Import Physical Inventory — You can set a physical inventory to determine how much product you have in stock. Setting a physical inventory refers to specifying the actual quantity of the product in a warehouse. The quantity entered is the quantity you have in stock.
  • Import Inventory Via Profile — You can import information using an inventory profile. A product profile lets you create new products and update existing product information by importing a file that is not in Sellercloud format.
  • Import Warehouse Bin Info — You can initialize or update bins using a template. Additionally, if your bin quantities are maintained in a system external to Sellercloud, this is an easy way to update all quantities in Sellercloud at the same time.
  • Import Assemble Kits — You can import kits in bulk through a file import.
  • Import Product Warehouse Images File — You can import product warehouse images in bulk using URLs.
