Negative Quantities

Negative quantities in Shopventory typically occur when items are updated in the point of sale system rather than in Shopventory.

  • What changes when using Shopventory is you make and enter all inventory changes/updates/additions to Shopventory rather than your POS.
    • We will automatically push that data out to your register and then pull in the sales data so we can update your inventory and compile sales reports.

  • To avoid negative counts, make all changes to your quantities in Shopventory and make sure Shopventory is the Primary Database.
