"When would I need a warehouse location?"
Let's say you have a backroom/pantry/off-site/warehouse for storage.
You can manage that particular inventory separately from the other location's inventory and transfer quantities between locations when necessary.
Note: A warehouse location will count towards the total number allowed with your particular plan.
Any location without a point-of-sale integration is considered a "Warehouse" location.
Creating a Warehouse Location
Simply visit the Locations and Integrations tab in the 'Settings' section of Thrive Inventory by Shopventory and add a location.
You can clone inventory from another location to the new location to easily populate a warehouse.
Managing a Warehouse Location
Once the warehousing location has been created, it can be managed just like other locations in Thrive Inventory.
Because there is no point-of-sale connected, only changes made in Thrive Inventory will have any effect on warehouse quantities. That location is only for storage and warehousing.
To transfer warehoused quantities from a warehouse location, please check out our guide to Transferring Inventory Between Locations.
