Inventrory at one location, pick up at a number of other locations

Hi....I have an online store, and would like to offer free pick-up at a number of markets that I do.

I have struggled to work out how I can do this.

 

Basically what I would like is:

1. Have the inventory at one location.....

2. Have the option to pick up the goods at four other locations.

 

My question is basically this:

Do I have to have a separate inventory for each location? The goods are taken from my online store location to the other locations as ordered.

 

Thanks in advance for any help on this.

This is an accepted solution.

Each location needs inventory even if all the real inventory is at location A but needs to simultaneously but not really exist at other multiple locations.

In practice you need an app to keep the inventory levels synced to the main location.

Many such sync apps findable with research; alternatively research shipping apps.

 

The mechanic automation app can be scripted for this scenario or other custom scenarios
