How do I track stock using Stitch Classic?

Last Updated: Apr 02, 2018 12:54PM PDT
Stitch has four measures to track the flow of stock from purchase and receipt to closed sales order.

Note: Stock is the only value that you update in Stitch. Other measures will update automatically.

Stock refers to all units of inventory—even those on open orders. Stock is the only quantity that you update directly.

When an order is imported or created in Stitch, we reduce the Available quantity, but Stock won't immediately change.


The Committed quantity reflects units on open sales orders and unreceived transfer orders.

Committed units count against what you have available to sell. Committed stock goes down when you close a sales order or receive a transfer order.

Tip: To see what's committing stock for a variant, search the Orders page for that variant as well as any bundles that contain it (video walkthrough). If using transfer orders, search the Transfer Orders page, as well.


Available stock is the quantity available for sale. Stitch automatically calculates this value as total stock less committed stock.

Master of Stock pushes the available quantity to your integrated sales channel.  


Awaiting stock represents all units on purchase orders that have yet to be received.

Knowing your awaiting units in context and at-a-glance is one of the many reasons to create purchase orders in Stitch.

Stock Formula

Stitch uses the equation Stock - Committed = Available. Here's an example how stock flows through Stitch using this formula:
