How To

Inventory Juggler

The Inventory Juggler feature is an automatically enabled function that allows to list the same inventory item quantity on multiple marketplaces simultaneously without the need to allocate exclusive quantity to a specific marketplace. For example, if you had 10 laptops on hand in your warehouse, a quantity of 10 could be listed to Amazon, eBay, Newegg, Jet, Cdiscount, all at the same time. When a sale occurs on any of the supported marketplaces, all other marketplaces are automatically revised with the new on hand amount. So for example, if 1 laptop was purchased on Amazon, then Amazon, eBay, Newegg, Jet and Cdiscount would all be updated to now list 9 laptops for sale on each of those marketplaces.

Inventory Juggler increases the exposure of your products to more buyers, allowing a limited amount of inventory quantity to get in front of more buyers then was possible before.

 

Prerequisites


You should be familiar with the following topic before continuing:

 

Considerations


  • The Juggler is enabled for all marketplaces you have integrated into your ChannelAdvisor Posting Account. You don't need to activate this feature.
  • If you used quantity allocation in the past to specifically define when to use the juggler please note that we phased out Quantity Allocation. Details can be found on the Notification of Allocation Feature Depreciation page.
  • Amazon FBA items can be juggled between Amazon and other channels with the inventory juggler. Quantity sent to the Amazon FBA warehouse is dedicated to Amazon.
  • If you fear overselling items with limited quantities you can set buffers in your Marketplace Quantity Settings. This will ensure that a minimum quantity amount will be kept for your products.
