Update Stock

Last Updated: Apr 12, 2019 01:26PM PDT
There are six ways to update the Stock quantity in Stitch, each designed for a specific type of stock change: Stitch automatically calculates Available and Committed quantities; these values can't be directly adjusted.

Note: This article applies to both our Stitch X and Stitch Classic Versions.

​Purchase Orders

Use purchase orders to plan, purchase, and receive new stock into Stitch. Use this method even if you produce your own goods.

When you add stock via a purchase order, Stitch automatically adjusts weighted average unit cost and tracks supplier performance over time.

Use stocktakes to plan and perform walkthrough counts of your inventory—by hand or with a barcode scanner. This method is best for routine cycle counting.

​CSV Import

To update stock in bulk, use the Inventory CSV. This method is best for wall-to-wall stock counts, but lacks the protection and context offered through other methods. For routine stock updates, use purchase orders or in-line editing on the Variants table.

In-line Editing on the Variants Table

To quickly adjust stock from the Variants page, hover over a stock cell (or warehouse stock cell, if using multi-warehousing) and click the blue pencil icon:

Hit the enter/return key after entering each value.

Tip: To update stock for a select group of variants, search by parent product or product tag.

​Reconciliation of Individual Variants

To note both a stock change and a reason for the change, use the Reconcile Stock button on the Variant Detail page. This method is best for recording inventory shrinkage/loss.

Quick Reconcile

Use Quick Reconcile (accessed via the Variant Detail page) to make quick adjustments to a single variant:

Note: While convenient, this method provides no context on why a stock change is made.
