Using ShipStation's API, Finale communicates with ShipStation behind the scenes to sync the orders and decrement the stock qty as orders are shipped.
Benefits Using Finale Inventory
There are many benefits to using Finale Inventory as your Etsy Inventory Management solution.
Easily keep track of your product variations. Etsy power sellers are keenly aware that Etsy previously does not have the ability to set variation skus for their listings with product variations. Etsy only allows creating a product listing with a list of multiple variations. For example, you have a listing of a red sweater with SKU 'ABC' with three sizing options (small, medium, large).
Regardless of which variation is sold, Etsy will provide the 'SKU' and size attribute. So when a product is sold, the information provided for the order will be something like "SKU 'red-sweater', small". Since a unique variation sku is not available, most inventory management solutions cannot keep track of the inventory.
If you are using [ShipStation as your shipping software, Finale provides an innovative solution to keep track of your variation. Finale will concatenate the SKU and the product attribute to create unique marketplace skus. As a result,
SKU 'red-sweater', small become 'red-sweater-small'
SKU 'red-sweater', medium become 'red-sweater-medium'
SKU 'red-sweater', large become 'red-sweater-large'
With three unique variations identified for the red sweater, Finale is able to keep track of the stock levels of each variation.

NEW - Auto Update Stock Levels to Etsy Variation SKUs
Etsy recently addressed one of the most requested features from their customer base and introduced the option to add a Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) to each listing or individual variation to make it easier to keep track of your items. Etsy has been rolling out this feature a rolling basis to all their customers. As a result, you may or may not see the variation skus capability in your account. If you do not, you can reach out to Etsy to enable this on your account.
If variation SKUs (Stock Keeping Unit) are currently enabled on your Etsy account, Finale can be leveraged to update stock qtys to the Etsy variations sku to mitigate overselling. Any quantity changes resulting from a stock operation (e.g. positive adjustments from a PO shipment or a negative adjustment to a sales shipment) will be updated to Etsy within five minutes.
