The Inventory Export flow exports an item’s “Quantity Available” from NetSuite to the corresponding item in Shopify on a batch basis. An item is picked up for export only when there is an actual change in the “Quantity Available” field for that item.
- The item itself is not exported but must be created and configured via Item Export (available in the standard (previously "premium") and premium (previously "enterprise") edition) or manually in both systems.
- To know more about how to configure the Multi-location feature and to track inventory by location, see Support for Shopify’s Multi-location inventory.
Refer to this example:
