It's easy to adjust the existing Stock level for a specific SKU.
Click on the Products tab.
Next, select Inventory from the sidebar on the left.
On this screen, you'll see all the existing stock levels for products that have inventory configured. (If you haven't set up your initial stock levels yet, check out this article.)
You can modify the values in the Stock column by adding units, removing units, or setting the stock count to a certain amount. Click on the appropriate symbol in the Actions column to get started:
When you add, remove, or set stock, you can add a note to help you remember why you made the adjustment. Note that when you add stock, you can also specify your cost for those additional units.
These functions, including a history of changes, are also available via the Inventory tab on the Product Detail window.
That's it! Making an adjustment to a single stock level is really simple, but it would be a lot of clicks to update multiple SKUs in this way. To update stock levels for multiple SKUs in a bulk process, please refer to this article.
**Note: if you attempt to create a label for an order with a higher quantity than available inventory for a product, you will get an alert like this one:
You may choose to Override & Create Label if you still wish to ship this order. However, selecting this option will ignore your inventory levels entirely. Meaning, no stock will deduct from your existing inventory levels. Use the steps above to manually adjust the levels if you need to.
