Managing Local Inventory

The Local Inventory inventory page allows you to manage items in your warehouse(s). You may add, update quantities, or remove items to keep an accurate list. These actions may be done individually or in bulk using a CSV.

 

The grid shows a list of items that you currently have stored in your warehouse. Use the hamburger icon in the top right corner of the grid to add columns to your display.

 

Add to Local:

If the product is not in your local inventory, toggle the option to show products with no local inventory.

  • Adding new items is as easy as entering the current quantity in the Local Quantity field.
  • Removing an item from Local Inventory is as easy as setting the item's local quantity to 0.
  • You can also make updates by changing the quantity in this field.

 

Update Local Inventory with CSV:

You can upload a CSV to update the quantities in bulk. Use the CSV options button to download the template. Enter the desired SKUs and quantities in the file. Click the upload option and select the file. 

 

Break apart a Kit:

Shipping local items to Amazon:

Creating a local shipment may be done here or from Restock Suggestions. From this view, enter the ship quantity into the FBA Shipment Quantity field on the right side of the grid.
