Getting Started with Skustack

The following is a short guide on how to set up Skustack.

Configure Settings in SellerCloud.

  1. Client setting Enable Warehouse Bin. When enabled, the bin management is activated in SellerCloud and the following related tabs will display:
    • Under Settings > Warehouses - Manage Warehouse Bins and Manage Warehouse Regions. 
    • On the Inventory Menu - Manage Product Warehouse Bins.
    • Inventory > Product Warehouse - Manage Warehouse Bins.
  2. Client setting Enforce Bins on Selected Warehouses (Optional). This setting limits bin management to selected warehouses. 
    • Inventory in selected warehouse will be calculated based on qty in bins exclusively. Any qty not in bins will be disregarded. Inventory that is added to warehouse, like through a PO, or inventory that leaves the warehouse, through shipped orders or FBA inbound Shipments, must be added to or picked from a bin to update the bin qty record. Otherwise, the product inventory in the warehouse will recalculate to the qty still in the bin (which remains unless picked) and will lead to inaccurate warehouse qty and overselling.
    • Inventory of products in non-selected warehouse, will be calculated using the regular warehouse inventory calculation. Selecting warehouses is explained in 3.
  3. Navigate Settings > Warehouses. Open applicable warehouse and enable setting Inventory managed strictly per bin. 
  4. Client setting Enable warehouse bin tooltip in Manage Inventory. Activates tool-tip when hovering over aggregate qty in grid on Manage Inventory page.
