FAQ: How to manage your inventory
We now offer an easy solution to manage your Educents inventory directly through your dashboard. It’s entirely optional, so if you don’t set an inventory limit, we’ll keep selling your items with out any knowledge of what you have in-stock.
To start setting inventory limits, login to your Educents dashboard and click “Products” on the left-hand side. You can update your inventory in three separate sections. The first section is “Manage Stock” next to each product and adjusting the number appropriately. Setting this number to 0 will show the product as “Out of Stock”.
If you scroll down, you will see a section called “Stock Inventory CSV”. If you have many products, this is a quick way for you to update your inventory in bulk.
Below is a sample of what the CSV looks like. On the CSV you will see four separate columns. “SKU” is an internal SKU number we use, so you do not need to worry about this number. Do not change this column. You can update “Manufacturer’s SKU” (your company’s SKU for the product) and the Stock. For stock, simply put the quantity/amount of inventory you have for the corresponding product.
Once your CSV is complete, upload it to the dashboard and this will automatically set your inventory limits. You can use this file to update your inventory as well.
Lastly, when creating a new product, you will see the option to manage inventory. Under “Pricing” you will see a section that says “Manage Stock?” You can set an inventory limit by checking this box and setting an inventory limit.
In this section, you may also setup a “Low Stock Notification”. This will send you an email notification when you hit the inventory number set in this box.
