You can import inventory information from your warehouses directly into Skubana using the Inventory module.

To import inventory, follow the procedure below.

1. On the Toolbar, click Inventory.
2. On the Inventory page, click Import/Export, then Import Inventory.

3. On the Select Warehouse for Inventory Import window, select the warehouse from which the inventory is to be imported, then click Continue.

If the warehouse you want to import inventory from is a direct, or in-house, fulfillment warehouse, go to Step 4.

If the warehouse is a 3PL or a drop-shipper's warehouse, skip to Step 5.

4. On the In-House Inventory Import window, download the MS Excel template for inventory import. Alternatively, you can download the template here.

Enter your inventory data into the template, following the template's file format, then save the completed file on your computer. Skip to Step 6.

5. On the External Warehouse Manual Inventory Import window, download the MS Excel template for manual 3PL inventory import. Alternatively, you can download the template here.

Enter your inventory data into the template, following the template's file format, then save the completed file on your computer.

6. Back on the In-House Inventory Import (if you are importing inventory from an in-house fulfillment warehouse) or on the External Warehouse Manual Inventory Import (if you are importing inventory from a 3PL or drop-shipper's warehouse) window, select the Excel inventory file from your PC, indicate if you want the import file to update existing stock if changes are found in the Excel file, then click Continue.

Skubana then starts processing the import file. The speed with which the process runs and completes depend on the number and/or size of the inventory data to be imported into Skubana.

The tables below show the header rows and descriptions of both the in-house inventory import and the external warehouse manual inventory import spreadsheets. You may use these tables as guides when filling up the spreadsheets.
