Warehouse Reference Guide

Warehouses represent physical locations where product inventory is managed and shipped for order fulfillment. Product inventory quantities can be managed per Warehouse. Available inventory is then calculated by Liferay Commerce to determine the total available inventory for sale across Warehouses. Channels must have a Warehouse associated with it in order to source product inventory. Multiple Warehouses can be created and associated with a given channel.

To manage your Warehouses, navigate to the Global ApplicationsCommerceSettings. Click the Warehouses tab.

Note

Warehouse settings are located in the Control Panel if using Commerce 2.0 or 2.1.
