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. 

Allocated:

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. 

Reserved:

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.
