  • What is the Master Stock Inventory and Centralized Stock Inventory in WooCommerce POS System?


    In the WooCommerce POS System, we have provided the master stock inventory system and a centralized stock inventory system. Using which the admin can assign the stock to the POS products and WooCommerce online store products accordingly.

    Master Stock Inventory :

    If the POS has been configured to the Master Stock Inventory, then the master stock inventory rule will be followed. The admin can configure the same by navigating to “Point of Sale > Settings > General Settings > Select Inventory Type”.

    For example – the admin provided 100 as master stock to a product, and 30 as WooCommerce store stock so now there will be 70 stock quantity of the product available to the admin to assign to the POS outlets accordingly. Now, the admin can assign the POS stock to the product enabled for an outlet from the available stock.

    I have assigned 500 as master stock to a product and 200 as WooCommerce online store product stock. So, available stock for the product here = 500-200 = 300.

     

    Now there is 300 stock remain for the product from which I have assigned POS stock to three different POS outlets.

    POS outlet 1 – 20 stock
    POS outlet 2 – 10 stock
    POS outlet 3 – 50 stock

    Now, POS stock assigned to the product = 20+10+50 = 80

    So, available stock = 300-80 = 220

    POS outlet 1:

    POS outlet 2:

    POS outlet 3:

     

    Note: You have to assign the stock quantity to a product for the WooCommerce Online store as it is mandatory and without providing the stock quantity to the product for an online store the user can’t assign the product stock for the POS outlets accordingly.

    Centralized Stock Inventory :

    If the POS has been configured to the Centralized Stock inventory, then the centralized inventory rule will be followed. The admin can configure the same by navigating to “Point of Sale > Settings > General Settings > Select Inventory Type”.

    In this case, the inventory for the website and the POS will be common.

    The admin can provide inventory for the product while adding a product or while editing a product as below image :

    And the same inventory will be displayed in the outlet as well. Check below image for the reference :

    Once you place an order in POS like below image :

    The inventory will be updated for the respective product.

    And in the respective outlet as well.

    And in case of a web order as well the quantity will be updated.

    Respective product quantity :

    Respective quantity for the outlet :
