How our Inventory Offset feature prevents overselling

Locally prevents overselling with our Inventory Offset feature. 

Here's how it works:

  • When an order is placed, Locally deducts that quantity from the quantity on hand last reported for the UPC in your inventory feed. 
  • If this offset reduces the available quantity to zero, the inventory may still appear on-site, but attempts by shoppers to add that product to their cart will be blocked  
  • The offset is released once your inventory feed syncs next. At that point, the quantity reported in your inventory feed becomes the new current quantity. 

Currently, retailers utilizing real-time inventory integrations (RICS and Rain POS) are excluded from this feature. 

Locally also supports special over-sell protection features for high-velocity product release events. For more information, contact your Locally account manager or
