One inventory for multiple locations

I have a retail business which consists of one permanent store (using Shopify POS) and also sell the same inventory via our online shop (again Shopify).  When 'Locations' were enable I added two other locations as we have stock for sale in another location and we have a regular 'pop up shop' at a variety of locations.

 

I've cancelled the second location, as having 3 inventory lists was causing more problems, as we haven't got the time to manually update.

 

I've still got the third location, for our 'pop up events' but haven't ot the time to manually transfer stock from the first inventory to this third inventory.  So stock is shown as -1 if I sell one item, and this isn't reflected in my original inventory.

 

Is it possible to have one 'master' inventory list for more than one location?  The current situation is causing problems when customers order something which is shows as 'in stock' but has actually been sold at a 'pop up event' but the original inventory hasn't been automatically updated, and we haven't got the time to do this manually.

Hi @Lowri_Roberts 

 

We've now had a few clients that have solved the exact same issue with our app, and by syncing their inventory information to Airtable. If you sync your data you can map the inventory at each location to go into a separate column within your Airtable worksheet, and can then modify the quantities quickly and send them back to Shopify. Another useful tool here is Airtable's phone app that allows you to change pop-up inventory levels on the go. Check out our help article on how to track and update Shopify inventory quantities with Airtable.
