When does inventory deplete for club packages?

The Available for Sale count depletes when the club orders are processed and charged. They don't deplete when a club member adds items to a package, only when the order is processed.

Because of this, there is a possibility that you won't have enough inventory to fulfill all your club orders, especially when there are lots of new items added to club member packages. We recommend you monitor the inventory values in Step 4 of the Club Package to make sure you have enough. When a product start running low in inventory, you can lower the Max Qty allowed for that item.

Inventory isn't deducted from Available for Sale until the club shipment is processed. Once its processed and an order is created it pulls inventory from "Available for Sale" inventory and moves it to "Allocated". When the club order is fulfilled it moves from allocated inventory and out of the system.
