Keeping up with inventory 👕👕👕  is task that is sure to keep a business owner busy. It can be frustrating when your product stock numbers get out of whack. 😖 But there may be a logical explanation for it. 

Initial Value

By default, all products have a starting stock status of NULL. If you don’t change the stock status, then any action that should affect stock status will not work properly (customer purchases, returns, received purchase orders, etc.). 

To keep a product's stock history accurate and functional, the product must have a non-NULL starting stock.

Stock Status must have a positive, zero or negative value, or the new stock won’t be applied to the product.

If the stock for a product is NULL, there will be a + [blank] next to Stock Status.

Adding Stock

To add stock, simply type the number of on-hand units in the field and save. Non-NULL stock statuses will have a positive, zero or negative value next to the Stock Status field.


Got stock, but it doesn’t show? It might be because you’ve got your default “Null” stock status still on. Change this to a positive number, a zero or a negative number, and keeping your inventory current should be no problem!
