By default, Whiplash will attempt to sync inventory level to each e-commerce platform associated with an item. This means that the orders placed in Shopify will affect inventory levels in WooCommerce and all other shops.
Items can be configured to sync under different circumstances. In most cases, the default settings above are appropriate.
Opting out of inventory sync
You might want to opt out of inventory syncing. Some typical reasons are:
- One platform supports origin(warehouse)-specific stock levels, and the other doesn't
- One platform supports realtime inventory syncing, but the other doesn't
- You only want to allocate a certain amount of stock to a particular platform
- You're expecting a massive spike of volume
You can turn off inventory syncing between Whiplash and individual stores/platforms by going to your Shops preferences.
