Managing Multiple Warehouse Locations

Created: - Updated:

This article will teach you about managing multiple warehouse locations in Sellbrite.

Sellbrite offers multiple warehouse locations for merchants who store their inventory in different physical locations.

Whether you're a merchant who uses your own warehouse + Fulfillment By Amazon, or multiple warehouses of your own, or multiple 3PL services, Sellbrite can handle your needs.

Adding a Warehouse Location

To add a merchant-fulfilled warehouse location, go to Settings > Warehouse Locations, and click Add Location.

You can edit the name and address of the new location. However, you're not actually receiving inventory quantities to the warehouse yet. We're only creating the location in this step.

It is not possible to manually add an FBA warehouse location. Those can only be added by enabling FBA in your Service Integrations.


Managing Warehouse Locations Per Channel

As soon as you add a new warehouse, that warehouse becomes immediately Active as an inventory and fulfillment location on all sales channels. New orders will be "assigned" to one of the Active warehouses as the Ships From location of the order, and the inventory for the item ordered will be deducted from that warehouse.

To manage which warehouses are Active on each channel,  go to the Channel Settings page of any of your Sales Channels. You will see your new warehouse on the bottom of the list.

You can sort the order of your warehouses here by dragging and dropping them into place.  The order of the warehouses dictates the priority for fulfillment purposes.  In other words, when a new order is received, Sellbrite will check for available inventory for the item ordered in the first warehouse in the list and will move down the list until it finds a warehouse with enough available inventory to fulfill the order.  That warehouse is then "assigned" to the order as the Ships From location and inventory is adjusted in that warehouse.

To disable a warehouse from being used on a particular channel, simply drag it to the Disabled Warehouses section on the right.

Your inventory rules above will combine the total inventory quantities for ALL of your active warehouses on this sales channel to calculate your Total Available per product. Thus, if each warehouse has 3 units of your product, you would have a Total Available of 12 on this channel. Your inventory rules will then adjust that total.



Receiving New Inventory Quantities

Receiving inventory in Sellbrite is super simple. Inventory can be received manually, in bulk or via CSV

You can edit inventory from the Inventory Manager, if the SKU you're attempting to edit inventory for is located in a single warehouse.

You can also edit inventory in bulk, through the Inventory Manager's Bulk Edit page for all merchant fulfilled warehouse locations.

Inventory can also be imported in bulk, using the Inventory CSV. Before you load the file, you'll need to choose which warehouse the inventory belongs to that is being imported.
