Frequently asked questions
Here are some limitations you might encounter when using Shopify without an external inventory management system:
- Limited inventory tracking: While Shopify provides basic inventory tracking features, it may not be enough for some businesses to monitor stock levels and warehouse inventory movement effectively.
- Manual inventory updates: Shopify's inventory tracking is mostly manual, so you'll have to update stock levels manually whenever new inventory arrives or orders are fulfilled. This manual process can be time-consuming and prone to errors, leading to lost sales, unhappy customers, and increased costs.
- Limited reporting and analytics: Although Shopify offers basic reporting and analytics features, they might not be sufficient for businesses that require more advanced reports to track sales, identify trends, and spot opportunities.
- Limited data = limited insights: Shopify's inventory tracking function only retains data from the past 90 days. While it gives you a snapshot of your current performance, historical data is essential for informed decision-making and future planning.
