Etsy Inventory Management
How Does Etsy Integration Work With Finale Inventory?
Finale’s Etsy inventory management solution has the ability to manage your inventory from your Etsy orders in two common configurations. The first configuration allows for a direct connection between your Etsy store(s) and Finale. Etsy orders are automatically synced to Finale where it will make the proper stock adjustments.
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 on your Etsy listings within five minutes to prevent overselling.
Through Etsy inventory management, Etsy sellers can have complete confidence that they’re not overselling products to their customers. The platform will connect directly to your shop(s), updating to reflect how much inventory you have in stock. After integrating Finale with your Etsy account(s), you can instantly start benefiting from the platform.
When a customer orders an item from your shop, Finale will receive the information that your inventory has decreased by one. Then, it will update your listing to reflect the sale. When the last item of a certain product type has sold, the listing will become unavailable. Thanks to the software, you avoid overselling unavailable items to customers. Etsy order management software helps you know when to purchase or make new items to keep up with demand as well.
The Finale platform also works with your ShipStation configuration to make shipping easier. This Etsy integration will update which products are available to ship so you can continue work without a second thought as to whether a certain product is available to ship.
Many of our multi-channel customers leverage ShipStation as their shipping software. If you are also leveraging ShipStation for your shipping needs, Finale Inventory’s ShipStation integration makes both inventory management and shipping easier than ever. With this configuration, Finale has the capability to keep track of the stock levels of all your products — even the ones with Etsy variation Stock Keeping Units (SKUs), such as “color” or “size.”
If your company uses ShipStation, you can quickly add Finale Inventory to keep track of your stock on hand without changing your existing shipping process. Using ShipStation’s API, Finale communicates with ShipStation behind the scenes to sync the orders and decrement the stock quantity as orders are shipped.
Who Can Use Etsy Inventory Management?
Etsy inventory management integration works for all kinds of Etsy sellers. Whether you use Etsy part time to sell custom knit blankets or are a full-time Etsy business owner who sells artisan jewelry, you can use Finale Inventory to have more control over your stock. This system is available for all kinds of Etsy sellers who want to gain better management over their shops.
One of the most significant issues Etsy sellers face is overselling. If you run your shop from your home or a small office and don’t have much help with orders, overselling can quickly become a headache. When you use inventory management, you never have to worry about selling inventory you don’t have in stock.
As a result, you don’t promise non-existent products to customers. This process keeps your customers happy, making them more likely to leave positive reviews and recommend your products to others. Additionally, you won’t find yourself working overtime to fill orders when you’ve oversold, meaning you can save time and reduce stress.
Benefits Using Finale’s Etsy Inventory Management Solution
There are many benefits to using Finale Inventory as your Etsy inventory management solution.
1. 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 an SKU to each listing or individual variation to make it easier to keep track of your items. Etsy has been rolling out this feature on a rolling basis to all of its 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 are currently enabled on your Etsy account, Finale can be leveraged to update stock quantities to the Etsy variation 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.
