Version 2.3 comes with several enhancements for Multi-Source Inventory (MSI). It is important to manage inventory properly, and this function helps you do it. More than that, it brings all inventories together. This means that you can keep track of inventory across multiple locations.
A merchant can also decide the quantities and products for every fulfilment source. This can also be done for stores, distribution centres, warehouses or even drop shippers which are third party, which makes things a lot more organised. Integration with third-party inventory systems is also possible.
What about merchants with just one single inventory? Well, Multi-Source Inventory can also help them. This tool helps them keep track of quantity. The system also makes it simple to keep track of product stock deductions when it comes to selling something.
This new version brought other small updates as well. For example, new security has been added. They will help you keep the store safe and tools such as Two Factor Authentication and Google ReCAPTCHA are used in order to avoid fake logins.
