- Buffer stock is the quantity of goods that is not part of the original plan of consumption, but is stored for use in case of an emergency. This can also be considered as the smallest quantity you want to keep in stock. For example, if you are out of goods but have not replenished in time, this buffer inventory will be used as a part of inventory.
- Additional stock is the quantity of goods that are preparing to be stocked or able to timely supplement the sales schedule (for example, during sales, promotions, ...). Products will only stop selling when the additional inventory quantity is exceeded.

Update/Add buffer stock

Update/Add buffer stock means that you will take a portion of the actual inventory for stock in case of an emergency. After adding the buffer stock, the available stock in the stock decreases compared to the original actual stock.

To add buffer stock, follow these instructions:

Step 1: Go to "Inventory" -> "All product" -> "Quick view" (the eye icon on the right of the screen)



Step 2: Update Stock

Update buffer stock number (smaller than actual stock number) -> Save change





So you have finished updating Buffer stock. When you have sold out of stock and have not replenished in time, you can follow the steps above and correct Buffer stock = 0, now you can use this stock.



Update/Add additional stock

For a product you are preparing to stock or able to timely supplement the sales schedule, follow these steps:

Step 1: Go to "Catalogue" -> "Action" -> select the three vertical dots -> "Adjust stock"



Step 2: Add the quantity of the product that are about to be stocked, check the "Continue selling when out of stock" if you want to continue selling this product while waiting for the goods to be stocked.



Here is the final result



This is how you update additional stock!

Products will only stop selling when the additional inventory quantity is exceeded. If you do not activate the Continue selling when out of stock, the product will stop selling as soon as it is physically out of stock.
