I'm looking for suggestions on a stock/inventory management app because nothing I have tried has done the trick just yet but I'm determined to figure it out! I literally just need something very simple that I can have my assistant manually enter inventory into (because we don't use barcodes yet) that integrates with Shopify that will also alert me whenever the inventory is getting low via email/text/etc.
It would be helpful if you at least stated why you need an App. Shopify handles inventory just fine without an App. So for you, it does not, and you feel you need an App. So please, in bullet points, just say why you need an App by listing the things you need, that Shopify does not provide.
Inventory management Apps range from a $30000 consultation with a $500 monthly fee to $20/month... and for that, what are you getting and why?
Best that you tell the community what you're struggling with and get some good advice. If a $500 script solves all your problems, you are going to save a lot of time and money, whereas if you invest in a $50 or $100 or $200 per month App, after a few years, you'll be wondering why you bothered as you ramp up and learn more.
If you're still looking for a solution, we have a simple inventory management app, EZ Inventory, that might work for you.
It's designed mainly for updating quantities and sending low stock alerts via email.
A potential setup to save you time might be:
So after the initial setup is done, the workflow would simply be update the spreadsheet and click the "Run" button in EZ Inventory to sync the quantities to the Shopify store.
If you don't use Barcodes or SKUs in Shopify, our app can map the data by the Variant ID as well which is auto-generated by Shopify. You can do a quick CSV export of your Shopify product data directly from our app which will include the Variant ID (the default Shopify product export doesn't include the Variant ID), so you can use this CSV export as the starting point.

Hi @SBC1 ,
If you are still interested, we have a Low Stock Alert application, Merchbees Low Stock Alert.
Merchbees sent an email to you when your item's stock below your chosen threshold.
You can set scheduled alerts, or you receive an alert as soon as when an item's inventory level goes below the stock threshold.
A few other things you can do with our app:
Happy to answer any questions.
Hey @SBC1 -- I'm actually working on a product that helps organizing and facilitating inventory management. I'd love to learn about the specific painpoints you are experiencing and if the solution I'm building can help out. Want to shoot me an email at gary[at]explo.co?
Looking forward to it!
