 Searching for a Stock Item

To search Stock items there are 2 methods available to find the correct Linnworks Inventory item that you wish to scrap:

 Exact Match

This is designed to be used where you know either the Linnworks Item Number (SKU) or the Linnworks Barcode for the item you are looking for. Use the text box at the top left of the screen to either scan or type the required Linnworks SKU or Barcode; when typing pressing the Enter key Linnworks will automatically invoke the search. The system will then return the Linnworks stock item if an Exact Match has been found. If the value that you searched for doesn't match a stock item, no search results will be returned.

 Manual Search

If you don't know the exact SKU or Barcode of the item you are booking in, click on 'find via Inventory Lookup', to perform a new search. All the results that match the value you searched for will be displayed in a window, and you can select the correct stock item from that list.
