20 Reasons to switch to osCommerce. Reason 12 - stock, suppliers, warehouses


Recommended Posts

Now we are talking!

Enterprise-level features here.

Stock. Suppliers. Warehouses! Read on to find out how osCommerce does it and why a real-life business shall seriously consider switching to osCommerce.

Stock is managed in a number of different ways in osCommerce. Overall stock is the total quantity of items available to sell. Allocated stock is stock that was sold but not dispatched yet. Temp stock - stock in the shopping carts (optional). Warehouse stock - all stock in the warehouse. Supplier stock - stock available in principle from suppliers, via product feeds. And Ordered stock - stock on purchase orders.

Sounds complicated? Well, it is not that much difficult to understand as it replicates any business's real-life situation with stock management.

osCommerce goes several steps further, actually.

It supports Suppliers and supplier product feeds, supplier price settings, etc. It supports multiple Suppliers for the same product.

osCommerce supports multiple warehouses. I.e. you can have stock of the same product located in different warehouses, and can move stock between the warehouses. Or between locations in one and the same warehouse.

Finally, those stock settings can be made unique for each variation of the main product, i.e. for each individual SKU.

Nice isn't it?
