The Store Fulfillment solution uses native Adobe Commerce Inventory Management. By default, the Commerce configuration assigns all web inventory to the default stock, which can not have additional sources assigned. Because a website can only be assigned a single stock, a merchant must configure a new stock and optionally transfer their default source inventory to a source that is assigned to the appropriate scope. Then, the source can be assigned to the new stock.
These configuration changes helps you accomplish three things:
Transfer inventory to source to move inventory from the default stock/source to the new stock/source.
Bulk assign sources to add the new sources for all your products.
Complete bulk updates for product attributes to add the
Allow Store Pickup and
Allow Home Delivery attributes to existing products. When the solution is installed, the attributes have the optimal default values. However, these attributes are not applied to existing products until you complete the bulk updates process.
Inventory is deducted from the selected source (retail store location or ecommerce warehouse). Sources used as ecommerce warehouses must be assigned to the same stock as the store pickup location and prioritized before the retail locations. For additional information, see Prioritizing Sources for a Stock.
For more information on managing inventory, stocks, and sources, see the Adobe Commerce user documentation:
Changing the configuration for inventory and stock sources can also have downstream impact on integrated systems. Ensure that you understand how the changes to the inventory configuration impact these systems.
