Hi, 

Does anyone know how to use Shopify Flow to Sync Stock for variants with the same SKU across all my inventory?
I know there are some apps doing this. But I wonder if Shopify Flow could do the same.

Thanks!

This is an accepted solution.

@JulianP Unfortunately, Flow currently does not have an action to update stock levels on product variants. But another partner app may expose a Flow Partner action to do this.

Hi @JulianP ,

 

It's hard to say definitively without knowing much more about your exact use case, but Flow does have an 'Inventory Quantity Changed' workflow trigger that you can use to build workflows that could pull inventory data into another Partner App (via Flow Action App Extension).

Hi @joshbeckman , 

Sorry I didn't explain in detail. I'm trying to find a flow that (1) when there is a change in the inventory qty for any reason, (2) the flow will check all SKU in my store and if it finds any variation with the same SKU (3) it will update these other variations with the same qty stock as the first one. 

I've used this app for a while (https://apps.shopify.com/duplicate-sku-sync) it does this task, but I wonder if Shopify Flow can do the same.

Consider us to be requesting this flow action, having to use yet another third party app for this minor-but-important action seems excessive

Stocklink is a simple solution to sync inventories between products.

 

We've found it to be the best solution for stores that need to auto-update inventories based on product sales.
