BaseLinker as a central storage

This article describes the features of the new inventory module. You can activate it from the product list or by contacting support.

Attention – the new inventory is still in the testing stage (beta).

 

BaseLinker provides many e-commerce configuration possibilities. The basic schemes are described in the article Warehouse configuration scenarios.

 

The BaseLinker inventory can act as a central warehouse, overriding the connected stores.

 

 

 

In that case, stock and prices from BaseLinker go to all stores.

 

 

Basic configuration

Follow these steps to properly configure the entire system:

  1. Connect your store (one or more)
  2. Make sure you have the same assortment in both the BaseLinker inventory and the store. If the products are only in the BaseLinker inventory, then export them to the store. If they are only in the store, then import the products from the store’s inventory into the BaseLinker inventory. If the same products are in both the Inventory and the store – skip this step 🙂
  3. Associate products from the Inventory with an external store.
  4. Follow steps 1-3 for other stores.

 

Synchronization

In the next step, set up the appropriate synchronization between the store’s warehouse and the BaseLinker inventory.

 

To do so:

  1. Go to Integrations → Store → Settings → Stock and then select ‘Send stock from BaseLinker to store (inferior store)’.
  2. Go to Integrations → Store → Settings → Prices and then choose the option ‘Send prices from BaseLinker to the store (inferior store)’.

 

BaseLinker will then send stock and prices to external warehouses.

 

 

Stock and price diversity

If you want to send separate stocks and prices to several stores, create appropriate price groups and warehouses. Select the groups and warehouses in the synchronization settings. 

 

Alternatively, the BaseLinker inventory can be set up as a bridge between other warehouses.
