Hi! I own a primarily brick-and-mortar comic shop and am trying to streamline the process of inventory for new comics that are held by subscribers. Essentially, we get 5-10 copies of an issue in, but a certain number of those issues are taken by people who have subscribed to them. So, for example, we get 7 copies of a book in but technically only 4 are available to the public because 3 are "taken."

One of the reasons I was attracted to Shopify POS and online sales was the ability to take control of my data and make sure it works to my advantage. I've been frustrated with this particular issue. So far, that path of least resistance seems to have been #2, as weekly comics are not something I tend to need to re-order. However, I'm happy to hear if there are other options I'm missing
