Shopify overselling

Shopify is a great platform to open your store and start your own business. However it does not help avoid overselling on Shopify platform and any other related shops that you may have.

To overcome this problem you should use Multiorders inventory management software. This software is a great tool to help you reduce the amount of errors and disappointed customers to the minimum.

When you add your Shopify store or any other unlimited amount of stores which you have, you will see all of your products on the Inventory dashboard. There you will be able to clearly see the available stock for all of your shops in one place.

If someone buys a product, the stock will automatically update on each store. You will no longer need to double check if you have enough inventory for all of the shops.

Reorder Point

With Multiorders you can do even more! You can set a Reorder point, which means that when you reach a certain number of available stock, the software will inform you about it and you can create a purchase order before you run out of stock.
