Publishing Ship Notice items

By default, Whiplash will not increment the Available inventory (the "sellable" quantity that syncs to a shop) until inventory is allocated to a shelf from a Ship Notice.

When to Publish inventory

If you want the inventory to appear in your shop before a Ship Notice is received, you can Publish it—one line at a time, or all at once—with the click of a button on the Ship Notice view.

This could be useful if you want to sell inventory before it arrives at the warehouse.


If your supplier sends less inventory than you're expecting, or it's damaged in transit, there's a risk of some orders being unable to ship. These will be put in the Insufficient Inventory status.
