Setting up inventory reservations for Shopify Fulfillment Network
If you want to stop selling inventory that you have in stock with Shopify Fulfillment Network, or inventory that you will have in stock at a future time, then you can use inventory reservations.
Before you begin
Before you set up inventory reservations, you need to configure the following settings:
- To prevent adjustments to your available inventory, activate inventory override sync for your store.
- Deselect Continue selling when out of stock for each variant that you don't want to sell. When this setting is selected, you can't modify your inventory reservations. Any product reservations that are made before you select Continue selling when out of stock will continue selling without any limitations.
Set up inventory reservations
- In the SFN app, on the Inventory tab, select a product.
- Click Edit reserved, and then set an amount of stock that you want to be able to reserve.
- Click Save.
After you save the amount of stock that you want to reserve, this quantity is subtracted from the Available quantity for the product in your Shopify admin. Any orders that are already listed as Pending fulfilment will still be fulfilled. You can only reserve inventory that has not already been sold.
