Understanding Inventory Terms

SellerCloud calculates inventory and records quantities in several places with several different terms. On this page we'll explain inventory terminology.

On the Product Home page
  • Aggregate Qty - Quantity that is available for sale.  (Physical Inventory in Product Warehouse - Reserved Qty  = Aggregate Qty). Please note: While this is the available qty, safety qty's will limit the available qty per channel.
  • Physical Inventory  - The sum total of Aggregate Qty + Reserved QtyWhile this is generally accurate, it is not necessarily the true Physical Inventory Qty in sellable warehouses (which can be viewed is the Product Warehouse Page). For technical reasons the above calculation is used rather than pulling the qty from product warehouse.
  • Physical Inventory (Including Non-Sellable)Total Inventory across all warehouses. Displays when client setting "Show Physical Qty including non-sellable in product home page" is enabled.
  • Reserved - Quantity that has been reserved from the Physical inventory for open orders. Reserved inventory is broken down to Unpaid orders and Paid but not yet shipped.

On the Manage Inventory page
Please note: These columns display when the relevant client settings are enabled.
  • Agg Available Qty - Quantity that is available for sale. (Physical Inventory - Reserved Qty (for orders) = Aggregate Qty)
  • Ph. Agg. QtyTotal Inventory across all warehouses. (Ph. Sellable Agg. Qty + Non sellable qty = Ph. Agg. Qty.  Alternatively, Agg Available Qty + Reserved + Non Sellable = Ph. Agg. Qty)
  • Non Sellable - Qty across all Non Sellabel warehouse.
  • Ph. Sellable Agg. Qty The sum total of Aggregate Qty + Reserved Qty. While this is generally accurate, it is not necessarily the true Physical Inventory Qty in sellable warehouses (which can be viewed is the Product Warehouse Page). For technical reasons the above calculation is used rather than pulling the qty from product warehouse.
  • Above the grid there is a Total Inventory column that relates to Inventory Valuation. Client Setting "Show Total Inventory in Manage Inventory Grid using .." controls mapping that value to either the Ph. Agg. QtyPh. Sellable Agg. Qty, or Agg Available Qty with default setting to Agg Available Qty.
