Adding a New Stock

Stocks map your sources to sales channels (or websites), providing a direct link to salable quantities and product inventories.

When creating a custom stock, you assign websites and sources. Sources can include enabled and disabled sources. For example, you may add a new warehouse to your stock, preparing to open the location for managing inventory and completing shipments.

After adding sources, you need to prioritize the order for the sources from top (first) to bottom (last). This order affects recommendations during order shipment.

New Stock

To add new stock:

1. On the Admin sidebar, tap Stores. Then under Inventory, choose Stock.
2. Tap Add New Stock.
3. Expand the General section. Then, enter a unique Name to identify the new stock.

4. Expand the Sales Channels section. Then, select the Websites where this stock is available. For a multisite installation, hold the Ctrl key and tap each website.

If you select a website or sales channel assigned to another stock, it will be unassigned from that stock. Any Sales Channels not assigned to a custom stock are assigned to the Default Stock.
