There are six ways to update the Stock
quantity in Stitch, each designed for a specific type of stock change:
Stitch automatically calculates Available
quantities; these values can't be directly adjusted.
Note: This article applies to both our Stitch X and Stitch Classic Versions.
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.

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

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.
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.
