Changing inventory quantities by product

You can update the inventory quantities in various ways on the Products page. Some of the approaches are described here.

Regardless of the approach that you use, make sure that Shopify tracks this product's quantity is selected in the Inventory policy list so that you can see and change the inventory quantities.

Change the inventory quantity for one product

The way that you update the quantity for a single product depends on whether the product has variants.

Product without variants

Product with variants

Change the inventory quantities by using the bulk editor

By using the bulk editor, you can change inventory quantities for multiple product variants and locations. The bulk editor is a page that shows rows and columns of data, similar to a spreadsheet.


  1. Go to Products.

  2. Select a product with variants that you want to edit the inventory quantities for.

  3. In the Variants section, click Edit variants > Open bulk editor.

  4. Change the values in the rows and columns by clicking in a cell:

    • Inventory managed by - Select whether Shopify or an app manages the inventory.
    • Available at - For each location, adjust the inventory quantities. You can specify Stocked or Not stocked, depending whether Track quantity is checked.
    • Track quantity - If checked, you can change the quantities. If unchecked, the inventory isn't tracked, and the values will only be Stocked or Not stocked.
  5. Click Save.
