Safety QtyThe buffer between the amount of inventory you have and the amount Sellercloud is sending to the channel to prevent overselling on high-selling items. It is used to subtract a number from the available quantity. When a product is set to Replenishable, the Safety Quantity is ignored.

  • Upload Inventory Update – Exports the inventory update for the product to Wayfair.
  • Disconnected from Inventory – Disconnects the inventory feed when, for example, you have a different system to update your listings.
  • Restrict/Unrestrict For Channel – When a product is restricted, Sellercloud will not allow updates for it on the channel, and will not include the SKU in inventory feeds.
You can also Restrict/UnRestrict products in bulk by going to Catalog Manage Catalog > Search for and select products > Actions > Restrict/Unrestrict for Channel > Select Wayfair in the pop-up > Click Update.

Update Inventory on Wayfair

You can update your inventory to Wayfair manually and automatically.

Manually

The manual Wayfair inventory updates can be done individually or in bulk.

  • Individually
    • Navigate to Catalog > Manage Catalog > Open a product > ToolboxWayfair Properties > Actions menu > Upload Inventory Update
  • In Bulk
    • Navigate to Catalog > Manage Catalog > Select your products > Action menu > Update Inventory on Channel
    • In the newly opened window, select Wayfair > Update.

Automatically

Automation is controlled by Wayfair’s General Setting Enable Inventory Upload. When enabled, Sellercloud periodically sends automatic inventory updates for your Wayfair-enabled products.

Pricing changes must be negotiated with a Wayfair representative. Currently, no option exists to update pricing in the inventory feeds. The Wayfair Price field on the product’s Wayfair Properties page is only for reference.

If you have multiple warehouses for Wayfair, use the Channel Warehouse Mapping feature.

Additional Product Configuration

Update Replenishable Products

For products marked as Replenishable (product is sold regardless of the available quantity), select the Enable Default Qty setting. Otherwise, the inventory feed will only send a quantity of 1. The following options will become available once this setting is enabled:

  • Use Default (pre-selected) — Keep this selected if you want to use the Default Qty from the Wayfair Settings page; or
  • Default Qty (used for replenishable products only) — Uncheck the Use Default box and enter a specific number that will always be sent to Wayfair in inventory updates, regardless of the actual inventory available for this product.

Discontinue Wayfair products

If an item has no available quantity, an order can still be placed on Wayfair for it unless it is discontinued. For a product to be discontinued on Wayfair, it must be marked as Discontinued in Sellercloud and have 0 quantity on the product’s Wayfair Properties page. To reactivate the item, simply uncheck Discontinued and Save.

Variations

Wayfair has its own way of processing variations listed on its platform. All matrix children on Wayfair will have the same Wayfair ID attached to them, so it is important you set them up properly in Sellercloud.
Make sure the Wayfair Merchant ID of each variation child matches the corresponding Sellercloud Product ID. This way, when an order comes in from Wayfair, Sellercloud will be able to recognize which variation needs to be shipped out.

Backorder Quantity

When you are using the Backorder option for Wayfair, you need to enable Send Backorder Information on the Wayfair General Company Settings Page. When enabled, we will send inventory for out-of-stock products following these rules:

  • If the OnOrder quantity of the product is > 0, and the expected delivery date is set to a date in the future, then Sellercloud will send the quantity on order, and the set expected delivery date automatically.
  • If there is an OnOrder quantity but no expected delivery date set, Sellercloud will send both fields. However, the expected delivery date will be set to one month in the future.
  • If there is no OnOrder quantity and no expected delivery date, Sellercloud will send the quantity as zero.
