Using Channel Allocation and Auto-Reorder rules are perfect ways to ensure that you don't run out of stock of your product and oversell.

By setting up Channel Allocations for your products, you can tell Skubana how much of your available stock to show to each of your sales channels.

This is not only a great way to avoid overselling, but also a great way to give customers a sense of urgency to buy. Strategically limiting the available quantity can creating a perception of scarcity, encouraging the customer to buy now rather than hesitate.

Channel Allocation Rules can be set up for products individually or in bulk on a global level. To set up Channel Allocations Rules, head over to the Inventory module.

Select either Core Products or Kits/Bundles from the Bulk Edit dropdown menu. All Core Products will have the Allocation Rules updated OR all Kits/Bundles will have the Allocation Rules updated, respectively.

Set Channel Allocation Rules in the first tab, and set Excluded Warehouses in the second tab, and click Save. Depending on how many Master SKUs you have in your account, the amount of time it will take for your new rules to both reflect in the UI for a particular product may be longer/shorter, but soon after that, the rules will be applied on all Core OR Bundle/Kit Products.
