  • Fundamental settings and advantages of Magento
    Inventory Management
  • 1) Managing Stock
  • Regardless of warehouse location, type of product
    or service, or sales channel you can manage your
    inventory with Magento inventory management
  • 2) Source Management
  • The physical locations where product inventory is
    managed and shipped for order accomplishment are
    called sources. Magento leverages the quantities
    and saleable quantities per stock and manages
    inventory amounts automatically for managed
    products and orders
  • 3) Managing Inventory Quantities 
  • Single Source Merchants
  • Single source merchants can update product
    quantities for the Default Source
  • Multi-Source Merchants
  • Multi-source merchants can assign multiple
    sources and quantities per product for each
  • 4) Stocks and Sales Channels
  • Aggregated inventory of products available for
    sale to your sales channels is represented
    visually as stocks.
  • The saleable quantities and available inventories
    are mapped with sales channels with each stock.
    The assignment of stock to one or more sales
    channels and sources is decided, depending on the
    website configuration
  • 4) Source Selection and Priority Algorithm
  • While finalizing the source, the Source Selection
    Algorithm (SSA) uses the priority order of
    sources configured in stock and analyses and
    determines the best match for sources and
  • You can also set other priorities and algorithms
    to manage inventory in Magento, there are
  • Source Priority Algorithm
  • Distance Priority Algorithm
  • Custom Algorithm
  • 5) Order Management and Reservations
  • Partial as well as full invoicing, payments,
    shipping, and cancellations per order are
    supported by Inventory management.
  • With Magento inventory management you can
    automatically enter or change reservations.
  • It also updates the saleable quantity for a stock
    and the on-hand inventory quantity per source.
  • Sometimes you may need to update orders with
    partial payments and cancellations while managing
    inventory in Magento, depending on inventory
    status and customer requests.
  • 6) Cancelled/Refunded Orders
  • In case if a customer cancels an order before
    shipment whether partial or in full. The saleable
    quantity gets updated with a new reservation of
    the inventory amount.
