Locally prevents overselling with our Inventory Offset feature.
Here's how it works:
- When an order is placed, Locally deducts that quantity from the quantity on hand last reported for the UPC in your inventory feed.
- If this offset reduces the available quantity to zero, the inventory may still appear on-site, but attempts by shoppers to add that product to their cart will be blocked
- The offset is released once your inventory feed syncs next. At that point, the quantity reported in your inventory feed becomes the new current quantity.
Currently, retailers utilizing real-time inventory integrations (RICS and Rain POS) are excluded from this feature.
Locally also supports special over-sell protection features for high-velocity product release events. For more information, contact your Locally account manager or firstname.lastname@example.org.
