A huge asset to the showroom is knowing if your product is in stock and available for their customer – not only does this help sales conversions, but also cuts down on calls to your Customer Service. We can update your stock position as much as daily based on your inventory feed.
The file format, comma separated values file (.csv), should include on separate lines:
- Manufacturer Item number / SKU
- Inventory available (on hand less committed) – Must be a numerical value/integer (No alphabetical values)
- Expected due date for items that are not currently available (Short Date Format)
- Flag for Discontinued Items (This can be either Y or N for Discontinued yes or no, a discontinued date, or the notation DNR)
