NEW! Listing Quantity Expression field in User Interface

 

Our sellers have found many benefits to being able to manage and manipulate the quantities that we push to the marketplace by utilizing our Listing Quantity Expression.

We are excited to announce an improvement to the User Interface for the Listing Quantity Expression field.  Now you will be able to easily change the expression and view the value that should be sent to the marketplace!

NOTE:  You will use the "Listing Qty" Column to see the quantity set and the "Listing Qty Formula" to see the formula being used.   The "Listing Qty Formula" is read only.

 

Options for the Listing Quantity are below: 

 

Show All Inventory

 

This is the default option.  With this option, you can choose to send the entire quantity in your warehouse back to the marketplace.

  • You will see an "A" in front of your Listing Qty to indicate you are using the "All Inventory" option.

NOTE: Make sure to SAVE changes after each edit to apply the change:

Show Less Inventory

 

If you would like to create a cushion of inventory to either avoid overselling fast selling items or create a sense of urgency by showing less inventory than you actually have on hand, this is the option for you. 

Simply populate the quantity you want to hide/reserve from the marketplace:

  • You will see an "L" in front of your Listing Qty to indicate you are using "Less Inventory" option.

Show Fixed Inventory

This option ignores the quantity in your Warehouse. That means that even when you have less inventory than the fixed number you're using as your Quantity Expression, we will still push the fixed number. (Even if the quantity is ZERO)

This can be useful if you can readily get more inventory and want to keep your listing live even after you run out of stock. However, if you want to avoid oversells, try the Inline IF option explained below.

  • You will see an "F" in front of your Listing Qty to indicate you are using the "Fixed Inventory" option.

IF Statement

 

With this popular option, you can show different quantities based on the conditions you choose.  "If my quantity is more than __  then show __ otherwise show my actual warehouse quantity."

 

We will automatically calculate the result in the User Interface- no manual calculating required!

  • You will see an "I" in front of your Listing Qty to indicate you are using the "IIF Statement" option.

NOTE:  For our initial release, these changes can be made in the User Interface one sku at a time.  We look forward to offering a bulk editing option in a future release!
