Inventory Client Settings

Overview

Sellercloud users with the Client Admin role can control account-wide Client Settings to enable or disable features and change how they work. There are features that you must enable on the client level first to use at the company level. 

This article contains a list of all client settings in the Inventory section of the Delta interface along with their definition.

Changes to client settings usually take effect right away. Refresh your browser’s cache if you don’t see the result immediately.

When you enable a setting, changes will not apply retroactively, and you may need to perform additional actions to synchronize the data.
To optimize your search experience, we recommend you copy the setting name directly from the interface and use the Ctrl + F keyboard shortcut to quickly jump to a setting definition.

Advanced client settings are marked with a yellow dot next to each checkbox in the Delta interface and with an asterisk before the setting name in this article.

General

  • Allow Entering Inventory Cost When Adjusting Inventory – If enabled, a field called Inventory Cost will appear in the additional adjustments window on the Warehouse page of a product. Additionally, a column called Cost will appear in the Excel file template for bulk inventory adjustments.
    • To reach the dialog window, go to Inventory > Manage Inventory > Search Product > Open Product > Toolbox > Warehouse. In the green panel, click Adjustments > Click the + icon to open the additional window.
    • To locate the bulk import page, navigate to Inventory > Tools > Import Inventory Info > Import Inventory Adjustments.
  • Always Deduct Inventory From Shadow Parent We generally recommend that the status of this setting is Enabled except for very few cases.
    • If enabled, we will always deduct inventory from the Shadow Parent even if you receive an order for any of its respective shadows.
    • If disabled, inventory will not be shadow persistent and we will deduct the inventory from the shadow when you receive an order for it.
  • Enable Average Cost Adjustments – By default, the Average Cost of a product is calculated based on your Purchase Orders (PO) and it will remain zero if you do not receive any POs including that product. If this setting is enabled, you will be able to make manual product average cost adjustments on the Purchasing tab of a product.
    • (Client admin only) To reach the page, navigate to Catalog > Manage Catalog > Search Products > Open Product > Toolbox > Purchasing > Next to the Average Cost field, click the Three Lines icon to make adjustments.
  • Enable Company Warehouse Cart Codes – If enabled, a page called Warehouse Cart Codes will appear in the toolbox on a company level.
    • To reach the page, navigate to Settings > Companies > Manage Companies > Open Company > Toolbox > Warehouse Cart Codes. This setting should be enabled for the Informed.co (Appeagle) Account Integration.
  • Enable FBA Reconciliation Page – If enabled, a page called FBA Reconciliation will appear in the FBA Inbound Shipments dropdown under Inventory. This setting is a prerequisite for the FBA Reconciliation report.

    • To reach the page, navigate to Inventory, FBA Inbound Shipments, FBA Reconciliation.
  • Enable Lot Expiry Workflow In Skustack – If enabled, we will track lot expiration in Skustack. This setting is a prerequisite if you are using the Lot Expiry workflow in Skustack and Enable Product Expiry Workflow should also be enabled for for this workflow.
  • Enable Warehouse Bin (WMS) – This setting is a prerequisite for Warehouse Bins in Sellercloud. With bin-enabled warehouses, you can use additional functionalities such as product picking through Skustack, bin transfers, and more.
    • Enforce Bins On Selected Warehouses – If this subsetting is enabled, a column called Enforce Bins will appear on the Manage Warehouses page. Also, a checkbox called Inventory Managed Strictly Per Bin will appear on the main page of a warehouse and it will be enabled by default.
    • Create New Bin For Each PO Received – If this subsetting is enabled and you receive a Purchase Order (PO), we will automatically create a new bin in the selected warehouse on the PO and add the products to it.
  • Enable Warehouse Inventory Transfer Request Reserves – If enabled, we will create Product Inventory Reserves when you add products to a Warehouse Inventory Transfer (WITR).
    • Enable Warehouse Inventory Transfer Request Reserves Exclude Pending Transfer Status – If this subsetting is enabled, we will not reserve quantity when the status of a WITR is Pending. Enable Warehouse Inventory Transfer Request Reserves should be enabled for this setting to work.
  • Consider Replacement Qty As Available Qty In Picklist – By default, we display the available quantity of a product in the Products panel on the Picklist Home page. If this setting is enabled, we will also include the available inventory of any related Replacement Products the order item has.
    • To access a picklist, navigate to Orders > Manage Picklist > Search Picklist > Open Picklist.
  • *Transfer Serial Numbers While Transferring Inventory Between Warehouses – If enabled and you receive a Warehouse Inventory Transfer Request (WITR) for a product, we will also transfer any added serial numbers from the From Warehouse to the Destination Warehouse. This setting can help you preserve the purchasing history.
  • Allow Multiple Receivings For Warehouse Inventory Transfer Request
    • If enabled, an additional page will appear when you use the action Set Received from the Actions Menus on a Warehouse Inventory Transfer Request (WITR). On this page, you can add multiple transfer receivings and edit them at your convenience. If you receive less than the total qty, the transfer will obtain a PartiallyReceived status.
    • If disabled, you can enter a value in the Total Received field only once and it will not be editable after you use the action Set Received. To make changes, you must use the action Set Unreceived, change the quantity, and set it to a received status again.
  • Do Not Allow To Make Product Inactive If Has Inventory – If enabled and you try to use the Set Inactive action in the Actions Menu on the Manage Catalog page, we will return an error and not allow the status change. This setting is an additional safety measure if you attempt to change products to inactive when not needed.
  • Add Flag To Inventory Arrivals Page – If enabled, a Flag icon will appear on the Inventory Arrivals page when the Average Cost of a product changes. If you hover over the flag, we will display the original and new values, which can help you with the related Site Price adjustment.
    • To reach the page, navigate to Inventory > Inventory Arrivals.
  • Enable Calculated Shipping Profile For Etsy – If enabled, we will send the values from the Shipping Weight and Dimensions (LxHxW) fields to Etsy when you use the Post/Update Product action for a single item or Launch on Channel for products in bulk on the Manage Catalog page.
  • Enable Convert Currencies In Bulk – If enabled, an action called Convert Currencies will appear on the Manage Catalog and Manage Inventory pages which will allow you to bulk convert currencies for Shadow Products when in a different Sellercloud company.

    • To reach the page, navigate to Catalog > Manage Catalog > Search Products > Open Product > Toolbox > Amazon Properties. Alternatively, simply paste a SKU in the general search bar to quickly access it.
  • Enable Warehouse Inventory Import By Warehouse – If enabled, a dropdown called Warehouse will appear in the Import Physical Inventory option under Import Inventory Info. The UpdateType dropdown should also be set to Full for the warehouse dropdown to pop up. This setting allows you to make physical inventory imports for a specific warehouse.
    • To reach the page, navigate to Inventory > Tools > Import Inventory Info > Import Physical Inventory.
  • Hide Inactive Employees – If enabled and the Account Activated checkbox on the Employee Home page is not enabled, we will hide this employee ID from all available Sellercloud search pages that would usually include it.
    • (Client admins only) To access an employee, navigate to Settings > Employees > Manage Employees > Search Employees > Click on an Employee ID.
  • Show Available Instead Of Physical Quantity In Product Availability Tooltip – When enabled, the tooltip i icon located in the Items panel, next to the line item on the Order Details page, will display information about the current Aggregate (available) inventory for the product rather than the physical. Note that it will ignore the Warehouse quantity reserved specifically for the order you are viewing. This means that if the order item only has 1 available unit in the Ship From warehouse, and 1 unit is ordered, the tooltip will display an Available quantity of 1. This is done in order to prevent mistakenly cancelling an order because the tooltip shows 0 quantity. All other Aggregate quantity calculations will correctly include all unshipped order reserved.
  • Set inventory when creating local listing from eBay to warehouse – If you select a warehouse in the dropdown of this setting, we will import the product inventory into that warehouse when you use the Add Product Via eBay feature. Keep in mind that the listing on eBay must have been created by you or we will not pull inventory. If you leave the value as Select…, we will automatically add the quantity to your Default Warehouse and if you choose None, we will not import it at all.
