How can I prevent a stock out in my Shopify store?

Asked a year ago

Hey! I am looking for an out-of-stock strategy to use to prevent stock-outs in my Shopify store. This is to prevent customers from looking to other businesses when products go out of stock. Can anyone recommend an effective strategy? Thanks.

A stock-out can occur anytime there is poor inventory data management. Here's how you can subside and/or overcome this cumbersome situation:

  • Keep your inventory data accurate and avoid errors using Shopify's unified commerce platform. This practice will help you funnel your sales.
  • Make use of ABC analysis to predict your required supply.
  • Keep a backup stock.
  • Employ logistical plans to improve your inventory management.
  • Have more than one supplier.
  • Adjust your products with pricing.
