Third-Party Stock Control

Last Updated: Apr 12, 2019 01:29PM PDT
Third-Party Stock Control syncs stock levels from an integrated 3PL or FBA to a corresponding warehouse in Stitch. You can also route orders to these services for fulfillment.

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

How It Works

Third-Party Stock Control creates a Stitch warehouse (a separate pool of stock) controlled by FBA or your 3PL. This requires multi-warehousing.

With both multi-warehousing and Third-Party Stock Control enabled, you'll have (at minimum) two warehouses: My Default Warehouse (your primary pool of stock) and a corresponding warehouse for the integrated partner.

Note: Stock levels in third-party warehouses can't be manually adjusted. The integrated partner completely controls these warehouses and will update stock accordingly.

Enabling Third-Party Stock Control

Account owners and administrators can enable Third-Party Stock Control in two steps.

First, go to Account Menu > Stitch Settings > General Settings > Feature Settings. From Feature Settings, confirm that multi-warehousing (required) is already enabled, then toggle Third-Party Stock Control On:

Note: Not all plans include Third-Party Stock Control as an option. If you don't see this option in your account, contact Support.

To complete the integration for stock held in Amazon, see FBA Stock Control. For 3PLs, consult with them directly as each partner-built integration is different.

Viewing Third-Party Stock in Stitch

From Integration > Channel Listings, you can see the items stocked via FBA/3PL, their stock levels there, and whether they're pushing stock to Stitch:

Purple color coding indicates that FBA/3PL is pushing stock to Stitch.
