Quick Start Guide - Inventory

Inventory within Linnworks.net is an electronic record for all the physical products that you sell. To allow Linnworks.net to manage inventory across multiple selling platforms such as Amazon and eBay it is crucial to set up your Linnworks.net inventory as a central repository which is mapped to the live listings on all platforms. With this in place Linnworks.net will be able to synchronise multiple channels based on downloaded order data and stock movements made via either manual or automated adjustments.

Use the following guides for assistance with inventory creation and adjustment. Guides on linking to sales channels and listing management can be found further down the guide.
