Hi! We've got a client with the following problem: the main online shop has three Locations (two POS and a warehouse). Another separate online store is for B2B. The stock is divided over the three Locations, but the B2B shop should have access to all the stock available over these Locations, regardless of where it comes from. With the current setup with ShopSync, it only syncs the stock number from the location with the highest stock number.
Stock at POS #1: 10 shirts
Stock at POS #2: 8 shirts
Stock at warehouse: 5 shirts
Synced stock at B2B: 10 shirts :(
We're looking for an app or a custom solution where the cumulative number of 23 shirts is communicated to the B2B store. Any ideas? There will also be a third online store, which will sell products from a specific Vendor, but should also sync the total stock numbers of these specific products. I'm already in touch with a few app companies, but we'd love to hear from the community :)
Thanks in advance! Greetings from the Netherlands
Has your Client considered upgrading to Shopify Plus? They can use the wholesale channel to create a separate, password protected B2B store, that pulls from the same inventory as the main online store. It would take into account total inventory from the POS locations and warehouse.
There's no need to work with an unofficial inventory syncing app, when Shopify Plus is available to you.
There's a ton of other super useful features offered by Shopify Plus. Click here to read more: http://bit.ly/2UmGRKw
Would be happy to discuss this with you further. Feel free to reach out to me.

You can use Trunk to also do this! Trunk will sync your overall stock across all your locations with your separate B2B store. All you need to do is make sure the SKUs match up between your online and B2B store. In your example, Trunk would sync a quantity of 23 to your B2B store 👍

Thanks for thinking with us. That would've been a solution, but next to the wholesale, we need a third store with the same functionality so it would still need some extra work ... And it's an expensive solution haha. I'd love to get more clients on Plus ;) but I don't think it's serving the client at this point.
We have produced several integrations that sync stock between multiple stores and locations for many reasons such as having the same items sold on several sites with a centralised inventory etc.
We work on our own in-house framework based on node.js which can handle volume and both input and output at the same time so you can have sales happening of the same product in 2 stores whilst updating the stock across the stores at the same time.
I'm sure we can help with your b2b requirements
