I can't seem to make any head way on this part of my conversion to shopify.
Basically my needs are the ability for me to set min/max quantities for each product. Create a po based on whats low stock and whatever I want to manually add. Receive a po and print a label for each product.
I tried stocky and there is no logical way to set the min/max stock numbers numbers. Support was useless. The app has potential but seems to bloated with all sorts of useless junk and can't handle the basics.
Does anyone here have any recommendations?
I can only discuss what we do so sorry can't provide other options.
We run our own product data platform and for our Shopify users we have a Purchase Order system which includes a restock report whereby it automatically adds products that fall below your low stock warning level. From there you can automatically generate PO's for suppliers the products are linked to and email them. The only thing I am unsure of is print label for each product so may need to clarify what you mean by that.
All the rest we already do can always make any tweaks if necessary. If you would like a demo just send me an email to email@example.com
Our main app integrates with Shopify rather than through app store. You just register at channelup.io and connect your store. Once you do send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org so I can get the guys to unlock your account caps and give you access to the PO and Restock functionality so you can test it out.
Kritesh here from Better Reports support team.
I believe our app Better Reports may be able to help. We can create an inventory report that is filtered to show only variants that are below a particular threshold (or above it to see high stock products). This report can be scheduled to run automatically at regular cadence (say daily) to be used as a low-stock alert. This report can also be exported directly to Excel, csv or pdf.
I encourage you to install Better Reports and start your free 14-day trial, and I'll be happy to set this up for you.
In addition to building custom reports to meet your specific needs, you'll also get access to 60+ built-in reports that cover many common use cases for merchants and our reports can be scheduled to send to your email or Google Drive at set frequencies.
Let me know how you go and feel free to reach out if you have any further questions.
