We have a large wholesale distributor that is looking to sell our product line that is requesting either a same day or 3 day inventory feed, I figured it would be easiest to do it through our Shopify store, is this possible and if so how do we do that?

Hi @PROSPEEDDAVE 

 

Depending on your Shopify plan, you might want to check the report based in Products > Inventory.

There you have a column named 'On hand' which represents the total amount of inventory at a location. This is the sum of available, committed and unavailable items.

While you can export this data, filtering by date is not possible.

If you're looking for a more comprehensive report, I can recommend having a look at Datma, our third-party app which specialises in product-level data analytics.

Within our product reports you can track your inventory quantity filtered by date(s). Comparison view is also possible. Further, you can export this data as a file or send it to an email address chosen by you. So, for example, you can schedule an email to be sent directly to your distributor with a copy of this report.

Our inventory reports also include 20+ more measures which you could explore.

If you'd like to learn more, you can visit our Shopify page here.

So we are looking for something that allows that distributor to see this without us having to pull and send a report

Hey, Andreea

 

It's nice to meet you.

 

Unfortunately, there is no way to implement something you looking for using only native Shopify functionality.

 

But I will gladly present our Mipler - Advanced Reports app that 100% covers your request.

 

At first, we can provide your suppliers with both sales and inventory reports.

And even more - you can provide suppliers with a direct public link to the report with real time data.

Kindly find below an example of such a report:

You can deny or allow viewing and editing filters and protect such reports with a password.

Also, you can export both inventory and sales reports to Google Sheets and keep real-time data there.

Unfortunately, there is nothing native to Shopify that allows you to share a report directly with a third-party.

 

Our Report Toaster app can help. You can use either our scheduled reports or share links features to accomplish your goal. Please feel free to take a look and reach out to support for help getting setup.
