Publishing Ship Notice items


By default, Whiplash adjust Available inventory automatically as items are put on the shelf. You don't need to click Publish for this to happen.

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, and if you're very sure of the count on your incoming merchandise.


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.
