If you own a store on Shopify, you've probably realized that managing inventory can be a real pain by now. But with a little coordination, effort, and a touch of help from an inventory syncing app, you can easily keep all of your inventory in sync across multiple stores.

Difficulties of Managing Multiple Shopify Stores

Shopify makes it easy to start and manage an online store. However, when you have multiple stores, Shopify inventory management can quickly become a thorn in a store owner's side.

One of the main challenges is to sync inventory between two Shopify stores. If the inventory is not synced correctly, it can lead to stockouts and lost sales. Another challenge is managing orders and shipping logistics between two inventories. It can be difficult to keep track of which orders need to be shipped to which store and ensure that all products are available in all stores.

When you're running multiple Shopify stores, it's important to stay organized and efficient with your inventory management. This means keeping track of what's in stock, what needs to be ordered, and when items are scheduled to arrive. Here are a few tips for managing your inventory across multiple stores:

  • Use separate inventories for each store This will help you stay organized and easily track which items are in stock and which need to be ordered.
  • Have a plan for ordering inventory Know what items you need to order and when they're scheduled to arrive. This will help avoid overlap or shortages in stock.
  • Record your inventory movement Use a spreadsheet or inventory management app to keep track of your inventory levels and orders. This will make it easier to keep track of everything and make sure that all stores are adequately stocked.

Why Should You Sync Your Inventories?

There are several key advantages of syncing Shopify inventories. These include:

  • Saving time: Automate your inventory syncing and gain more time to focus on your business.
  • Saving money: Avoid wasting money on unnecessary inventory purchases.
  • Reducing errors: Prevent manual data entry and reduce the risk of making errors.
  • More reliability: Data is backed up, secured, and more reliable than ever.

Syncing Inventory Across Multiple Shopify Apps

If you're like most Shopify store owners, you probably use more than one Shopify app to manage your inventory. But what if you could sync your inventory between all of your apps? It's now possible with the new Multi-Store Sync Power app for Shopify.

Multi-Store Sync Power connects to all of your Shopify apps and syncs your inventory in real time. This means that any changes to your inventory, including adding or removing products, are automatically updated in all of your other apps. Some notable features of the app include:

  • Automated inventory updating Sync Power always provides a seamless process to sync the quantities of your inventory. It automatically adjusts inventory in your stores whenever a new order, refund, cancellation, or restock is initiated. Sync Power automatically ensures your inventory amounts are the same in every location.
  • Synchronized fields across multiple properties Synchronizing your purchases allows you to upgrade the objects in all of your stores in the event that there is a change in the main product. You can select which fields to update and which fields you don't need to synchronize.
  • Automated product creation While product updates are important, automatically adding new products is even better. Sync Power can be used to automatically compile new products for all stores that own your main store. Just make sure this option is enabled, and your new products will be created in all your other stores, along with the correct fields and synchronization.
