This article explains how stock levels can be updated from Cin7 to Zalora.

Overview

You have the option to update stock levels for all your products or only those products that have had recent transactions.

Updating All Stock levels


To update stock levels for all products:

FAQs

Is it possible to update stock levels automatically?

Yes, by selecting Auto Stock Updates in the Shopify settings, stock levels will be updated every time an order is downloaded, and also every time an Admin screen is visited.

How frequently should I update the stock levels?

Because stock levels will be diminished in Zalora as soon as an order is made, there is no need to update stock levels frequently, unless other sales channels are causing your inventory to change.

For instance if your ecommerce store pulls from the same inventory as your Zalora stock, it may be desirable to update stock levels more frequently to ensure your Zalora stock levels are up to date.

Can I determine what stock levels are updated to Zalora?

Yes, there are a few settings that determine what stock levels are updated. Please see Zalora Settings.
