Changing inventory quantities (Shopify admin)

When you use multiple locations, you can update the inventory quantities in several ways on the Inventory page in your Shopify admin.


  1. In the Shopify admin, go to Products > Inventory.

  2. If you have multiple locations, then select a location from the drop down menu.

  3. Optional: Filter or search the list of products.

  4. You can adjust the available quantity of a single variant or multiple variants by the same amount.

    • To adjust a single variant, enter the quantity in the Available column of the variant that you want to adjust.
    • To adjust multiple variants by the same amount, select the variants you want to edit and click More actions > Update quantity.
  5. Click Save. The new total is in the Available column.

If a product is not listed for that location, then you're either not tracking inventory for that product, or the product isn’t stocked at the location.

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, and then select the product with variants that you want to edit.

  2. In the Variants section, select the variants that you want to edit, and then click Open bulk editor.

  3. Click Columns, and then select a location where the products are stocked. Repeat this step for every location where the inventory quantities need to be updated.

  4. For each variant that you want to update, click the inventory quantity at a location to update the value.

  5. Click Save.
