Consignment - Inventory

For Consignment Orders, once you create your Pick Ticket & Ship your products, your Source Warehouse inventories will decrease and your Destination Warehouse (Customer's Consignment Warehouse) inventories will increase.

As shown in Figure 1, before shipping to the customer's consignment inventory, the current inventory levels for the SJ001 product sizes 1 and 10 is 200 for each.

Buyer's Selling Products

As your customer sells products out of their consignment inventory, you can also see their in stock levels go down.  Please see the Buyer's Consignment Inventory Knowledge Article for information on how the Buyer can manage their inventory related to the receipt and return of inventory.

Inventory Transactions

You can see all Inventory Transactions from the Adjustment Inventory screen.  This screen will show you the dates, the shipments, products, quantity changed and what is remaining in stock (now).  The "Type" field is labeled as "Consignment" for Shipments or "Consignment Sale" for anything sold by the Buyer.

To access this screen, click on the "Inventory Adjustment" from your main, left vertical menu.  Then click on the Change Log button in the middle of the screen.
