The Difference Between Available for Sale, Reserve, and Allocated Inventory.


Please note: All numbers in inventory segments refer to individual skus, not cases. 

On the Commerce7 platform, inventory is segmented into three categories: available for sale, reserve, and allocated.

Available For Sale:

Available for sale is exactly how it sounds, this is your inventory that is currently available for sale. 


When a customer makes a purchase, inventory moves from Available for Sale to Allocated. Inventory stays in allocated until the associated order has been fulfilled. 

Once an order has been fulfilled, inventory leaves the system. 


You can also manually move inventory to the reserve category if you want to set it aside for an upcoming event or for other purposes.
