Replenishable — If you want to sell a specific item regardless of the available quantity, mark it as Replenishable. When updating various channels, Sellercloud sends a fixed quantity for replenishable products, and so it consistently shows a specific available quantity. When set to Replenishable, the Safety Qty is ignored.
Default Qty Enabled — Only applies to Replenishable products. For these products, the Default quantity is the number that will always be sent to the channel in inventory updates regardless of the actual available inventory.
Avail. Qty — The inventory quantity available for sale: the physical quantity in all sellable warehouses, minus unshipped orders and reserves.
