Stock Level

Whilst it is possible to update stock level using an Inventory Import, it may be more convenient to update stock level with the specific Stock Level import. The Stock Level import type will not create stock items if they do not already exist in the Linnworks.

Table of Contents


Imports of the same type will not launch simultaneously even if they are scheduled to start at the same time. Instead, such imports will be launched one by one consecutively to improve the performance of the import process.

Available Columns
