What Is a Stock Location?

A given product can have different amounts of stock in different places, and that's why stock locations are handy. In Crystallize, a stock location is defined by its name, identifier, and stock, which can be unlimited or have a minimum amount possible. An unlimited stock location means that the product is not stockable, e.g. an online course. A minimum value comes into play when you want to have a guaranteed number of items and not go below that value, e.g. a minimum of 10, because you want to guarantee stock for your partners.

Managing Stock Locations

A tenant's stock locations can be managed via the PIM API or the Crystallize App. To do so, you'll first need the requisite permissions for Stock Locations (read, create, etc). Refer to our documentation on roles and permissions for more information.

Within the Crystallize App, you can click the Settings icon on the left-hand side of the screen, then select the Stock Locations label. Define new stock locations by clicking the Add location + button in the top-right corner. Once created, you can use the action buttons (…) on the right side of each stock location entry to edit or delete it.

Adjusting Stock

The stock values for product variants can be adjusted programmatically with the PIM API or manually within the Crystallize App, using either Pretty View or Nerdy View.
