After July 2021, the 2.3.x release line will no longer receive quality updates, or user guide updates. PHP 7.3 reaches end of support in December 2021 and Adobe Commerce 2.3.x reaches end of support in September 2022. We strongly recommend planning your upgrade now to Adobe Commerce 2.4.x to help maintain PCI compliance.

Transferring Inventory to Source

The information on this page is intended for Adobe Commerce 2.3 customers who are on an extended support contract. The Adobe Commerce Merchant Documentation for current releases is published on the Adobe Experience League.

Depending on your business needs and status of location, Multi Source merchants may need to transfer product inventory from one source location to another. For example, you may be closing a warehouse location or no longer ship specific products from a location, moving all operations for those products to a new location.

This option allows you to select one or more products, the origin source to transfer inventory, and the destination source to receive quantities:

  • Inventory quantities, Source Item Status (In Stock/Out of Stock), and the Notify Quantity for the selected source are moved per product.

  • If a product does not have that source, it is skipped.

  • All product inventory for the source is moved. You cannot transfer a partial quantity.

If the origin and destination sources are in different stocks, this will affect the aggregated Salable Quantity and reservations for in-progress orders.

You have an option to also unassign the source when transferring inventory quantities.

Unassigning a source clears all quantity data. Reassigning a source can potentially cause issues with salable quantities, reservations, and pending orders. We recommend processing all orders prior to unassigning sources, or other source changes. You can also use new commands to detect and update reservations. See DevDocs Inventory CLI reference.
