Updating Inventory is one of the most important and critical factors for a marketplace. Without updating inventory we won’t be able to sell them. So, we should properly understand updating ecomdash inventory. By reading this article carefully, you will be able to learn about updating ecomdash inventory.

What is ecomdash?

Ecomdash is one of the most popular cloud-based inventory management systems. It integrates standard inventory management features with order management and shipping management. It combines both capabilities into one single platform. Actually, it is made for small and medium-sized online retailers who sell their items in multiple e-commerce channels.

Importance of Inventory update

For any marketplace, the most significant factor is the INVENTORY of the items. Inventory is the available stock for a certain item. If there is no inventory for the item then or has run out, the item(s) will be unavailable for the customers to buy. So it’s very critical to updating ecomdash inventory in a timely manner when required.

Go to the Ecomdash Dashboard > Inventory > Inventory Management
