Brink Commerce API inventory functionality allows for multiple inventories to be created and assigned to your stores. Create, prioritize and update inventories to suit your needs, enabling products to be available across different locations and channels.
The stock and inventory functionality is fully available via our Stock Management API.
The stock management API gives you features such as:
- Product stock validation
- Stock prioritization
- Multiple inventories
Multiple warehouses with prioritization
Brink Commerce API will use the warehouse with the highest prioritization (lowest integer) that has stock for all the products in the cart.
We recommend that you primarily use a dedicated warehouse to minimize oversell. When using a dedicated warehouse, Brink Commerce API is handling the stock levels. Therefore, stock updates should only be done once per day or when an inbound delivery is made.
We recommend that this type of warehouse is only used as a secondary warehouse. A shared warehouse requires that Brink Commerce API is updated every time there is a change in stock levels.
