Why Stocky? - What are the advantages

Stocky is available for stores that have Shopify Point of Sale (POS) enabled and are using POS Pro for at least one location. Once Shopify POS Pro is added to the plan, Stocky can be installed from the Shopify App Store.

Stocky is used to manage stock when using Shopify POS. It helps to:

  • Track inventory levels
  • It can forecast the required inventory and suggest which items should be ordered
  • Changes can be made to the inventory, for example, as part of a physical inventory or if an item is damaged, etc.

By automating warehouse processes, Stocky lets you save time and reduce human error. So Stocky makes warehouse management more efficient. 

The app helps you avoid overselling by updating inventory in real time, and ensures you're never without popular products. Plus, with the reports and data the app generates, you can plan better and make informed decisions about stock orders.

How do I use Stocky with Shopify?

To use Stocky in your store you have two options, firstly it is possible to do the inventory manually, alternatively you can do the whole thing with a barcode scanner, which reduces the amount of work.

Stocky - Manual inventory

If you don't have a barcode scanner, inventory is done manually with the app, which means Stocky shows you the target quantity of products in Shopify POS, you manually count the available products and reconcile the numbers.

Stocky - Barcode Inventory

In the variant with barcode scanner, all existing products are scanned once. After that, you will also see the target and actual values. Afterwards, the values can be adjusted. In addition, reasons for the difference can be given and the employee who performed the inventory can be noted. 

After the inventory, the stock is at the current level and updates automatically when products are sold.

All inventories are of course stored in the Stocky app, so the app should never be deactivated, otherwise the data will be lost historically.
