To filter the inventory levels sent to your individual stores, you can set up Stock Pushing Rules. You can set one rule per store and this rule will apply to all products in that store.
1. Go to Settings > Stores
Then select the store you want to set a Stock Pushing Rule for.
2. Once viewing the store you want to set rules for, select the Edit tab then scroll all the way down through the stores settings until you see Advanced (Optional) How Stock Quantity Should be Synced:
3. Select the rule you wish to create for this store as you can only create one rule per store. It's defaulted ready to show 100% of your quantity, so it's showing your real inventory level that is stored in Veeqo.
- Max. Quantity To Advertise:
This option shows the maximum stock level to show across all of your products. e.g. It is set to 5 in the screenshot, meaning Veeqo will show your inventory level as 5 or below. If you have 100 in stock for one product, Veeqo will only show 5 in stock on the store.
This can be useful if you want customers to think you are low on stock and push them to make an order because they think you're going to sell out of the product.
- Min. Threshold Qty:
This means that when you become low on stock, Veeqo will tell your store that you are out of stock for this product. e.g. It is set to 2 in this screenshot, which means when the inventory level reaches 2, Veeqo will show it as 0 in stock.
This can be useful if you have a retail outlet and you always want to keep at least 2 in stock to sell in store and hold off online sales until you have more in stock.
- % of Quantity:
This is the percentage of your inventory level you want to show online. This is automatically defaulted to show 100% (so the full stock level you have in Veeqo.) You may want to lower the percentage so you never run out of stock. e.g. If you set this to 90% it means if you have 10 in your inventory, Veeqo will only advertise 9 in stock.
This is similar to 'maximum quantity to advertise' as it will always leave you at least 1 in stock so you never sell out completely.
- Always Set To:
This option means no matter your inventory level, Veeqo will keep all your products stock levels set to this number on your store. e.g. It is set to 5 in this screenshot, so even if you have 100 in your inventory, Veeqo will tell your stores that you have 5 in stock.
This is useful when you want to show products as constantly available and not show that you have an endless inventory so they perhaps become more likely to purchase there and then. Be aware, that you could risk overselling if you always advertise with a specific inventory level.
4. Once you've set up your rule, just hit Save and your rule will be applied to your chosen store. Hooray!
