Automated Inventory Sync
Some select fulfillment providers* have the ability to sync the inventory count found at fulfillment with the inventory count for your SKUs within Vin65. The inventory sync will run once a day (WineDirect @ 7AM PST and Copper Peak Logiostics @ 10PM PST) and will compare inventory counts in Vin65 with those at fulfillment and make updates to match.
After the inventory counts are synced an sync summary email will be sent to winery administrators onlining what took place in the sync.
SKUs included in the email will be highlighted in a specific color explaining what happened in the sync. Below is a color key (which is also included in the email).
|White||No changes necessary.|
|Pink||SKU exists on Vin65, has inventory, but is not found at fulfillment or out of stock at fulfillment. You should make necessary adjustments.|
|Orange||Product is out of inventory at fulfillment. Vin65 is synced to zero inventory.|
|Yellow||Inventory exists at both Vin65 and fulfillment but is out of sync. Vin65 has synced the inventory to match fulfillment.|
|Blue||SKU exists at Vin65 and has inventory turned off (including deactivated products). SKU is not found at fulfillment.|
|Green||SKU exists at fulfillment but does not exist on your website. You can add this SKU to Vin65.|
The inventory sync can only sync with one inventory pool or the default pool in Vin65 ecommerce. If you have inventory at multiple warehouses with your provider, the totals for each locations primary inventory pool will be combined into a single inventory pool count in Vin65 ecommerce.
