Receiving stock transfers on Shopify POS

Staff can receive incoming transfers from other retail locations on Shopify POS using the Inventory Transfers POS UI extension. A stock transfer must be created within the Stocky App first, and is displayed in the Stocky POS UI extension at the location receiving the transfer.

  2. In the In transit tab, tap the inventory transfer that you want to receive.
  3. Tap the item in the transfer that you want to receive.
  4. Optional: If you received all the items in the transfer, then you can tap Receive all to complete the transfer.
  5. Use your barcode scanner to scan each product that you received, or manually update the number of products that was received. If there are products in the transfer that you want to reject, then use the Reject section of the item transfer to change the inventory that you are receiving.
