Shopify inventory management FAQ

Shopify is not inventory management software, but it does have some essential features that help merchants handle their stock and streamline operations.

With Shopify’s built-in inventory management tools, you can:

  • Track stock levels
  • Manage product variants
  • Set alerts for low supply levels
  • Update inventory counts automatically

This can be useful to businesses that are starting out and don’t yet have very strict and advanced requirements.

However, considering alternatives like Katana could benefit businesses seeking more complex capabilities and features beyond Shopify inventory management.

Katana can take your inventory management to the next level, especially if you’re dealing with more demanding inventory challenges or aiming for operational excellence.

Shopify has features that can definitely get the job done for a small to medium-sized business with limited needs.

Shopify employs a “weighted average cost” inventory costing method for calculating the cost of goods sold (COGS) and the value of ending inventory. This method considers the average price of all items in stock, considering the quantity and cost of each item, to determine the cost of goods sold and the remaining inventory value. 

However, if you’re looking for a more advanced and comprehensive inventory management solution, especially for more complex inventory processes or to accommodate a different inventory costing method, a specialized system like Katana can significantly enhance your inventory management capabilities.

Managing inventory on Shopify involves utilizing its built-in tools for basic tracking.

Trace and manage your inventory in the Inventory page of your Shopify admin panel.

To maintain inventory on Shopify, regularly update quantities as stock arrives and orders are fulfilled. The platform will automatically deduct sold items. Additionally, make manual adjustments for damaged or lost items, and use reporting features to analyze inventory levels and sales trends.

However, you might want to consider Katana when looking for a more advanced way to do inventory management for Shopify.

Katana + Shopify integration offers valuable features, such as:

  • Real-time inventory sync
  • Smart material allocation
  • Demand forecasting
  • Multilocation management

These capabilities optimize order fulfillment, prevent stockouts, and provide deeper insights into inventory performance, making Katana the ideal alternative for businesses seeking enhanced inventory management.
