Managing Inventory in Cahoot is simple. First, we will confirm that the inventory count sent to a partner's location shows the same quantity available in Cahoot. We will then track this number so that you can monitor in real-time and replenish in advance of stock-outs. Please note that Cahoot does NOT track the Seller's inventory available outside of Cahoot Partner locations. This is the quantity you have on-hand, which does not get decremented from Cahoot inventory quantity for orders fulfilled outside of Cahoot. In this article, we will talk more about the best practices for managing and updating your "Seller" inventory.
1. Navigate to Products > Your Inventory with Partners.
2. The Partner Quantity column shows your available inventory in real-time.
3. Your Quantity indicates whether you have inventory in your warehouse or not. Remember that Cahoot will NOT track this inventory. It is your responsibility to update this value when you receive or run out of inventory so your Fulfillment Partner can fulfill orders accordingly. Please follow these guidelines for updating the "Your Quantity" column:
0 - Seller does NOT have enough quantity to fulfill orders. All orders will be fulfilled by Cahoot.
1 - Seller is able to fulfill orders but inventory is low (ex. at or below safety stock).
99 - Seller is able to fulfill orders and has enough quantity available that you would like Cahoot to assign a SFP shipping template in Amazon for your location.
4. The Partner Inventory with You table shows the inventory that you are storing on behalf of your Cahoot partner(s).
