Changes and Updates to inventory and quantities should ONLY be made in Shopventory. 

  • Any change or update made in Shopventory will reflect automatically in minutes on the point of sale, as long as the integration settings are set to sync (as recommended).
  • Changes to inventory information made in your provider's inventory system will NEVER pull into Shopventory automatically. 
  • Sales made in your point of sale will be decremented automatically within Shopventory.


Note: inventory changes and updates can also be made via
