Shopify Inventory

Shopify inventory management can be an unencumbered process when Shopify is synched with SOS inventory. In just minutes you can connect your Shopify account and import your inventory from your ecommerce account directly into SOS inventory to manage your operations from end-to-end. And if you use QuickBooks Online, all your data can be automatically updated across all platforms.

Stock Management in Shopify

How does Shopify inventory work?

A few basic inventory management features are available within your Shopify account. You can view items in stock and see their history. You can also receive stock from suppliers. However, all the steps in between, and any level of serial number or lot tracking detail is not possible in Shopify.

SOS Inventory offers you greater control over inventory management and is easily implemented by importing your Shopify sales orders and receipts into SOS. Your Shopify SKUs will match up with your SOS Inventory SKUs, updating your inventory quantities in Shopify when the item match is made. Generate new inventory items with images from your inventory in SOS. Once your items are mapped across both platforms, managing inventory quantities, orders, billing, finance, and reporting is simplified for your business. Shopify inventory integration is easy with our API.

Trigger purchase orders from your imported sales orders, initiating production, fulfillment, shipping, and invoicing as a seamless process through your SOS Inventory account. Your Shopify products will always display accurate quantities, so customers are aware of product availability or when something is on backorder. Keep your inventory levels harmonized with sales to meet demand and maintain a happy customer base.

What our customers say


While I’m still learning new things about SOS constantly, this program has been a GAME CHANGER for inventory management. The company I work for isn’t very large, we only have a handful of products, but we’re medical so keeping track of lot numbers is CRITICAL to our business. During the initial training, Justin was AMAZING and so helpful and patient. Since, I’ve only had to send one support ticket. Cheryl answered my question very quickly and was VERY helpful with my follow up question. I don’t have any experience on the accounting side, as I only deal with the sales orders/shipping/invoices, but the side of things I do use are awesome and I’m so glad my administrator found SOS at the QuickBooks convention she attended.


We had to move quickly from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online, and needed lots of help with our inventory builds and bundles. Steve was a tremendous help with correcting most of the issues we had with a painful transition, plus he had tremendous patience with our team as we worked through it all. Kudos to Steve!
