Multi-Location Inventory

Published by Miranda Posthumus on January 4, 2022

Last updated on April 3, 2023

New feature to allow tracking of product inventory across multiple locations. Updated in April 2023 to include the option to limit shopper access to inventory at specific locations by using granular assignments.

New Resource: InventoryRecord

"InventoryRecord" : {
  "ID": "",
  "OwnerID": "",
  "AddressID": "",
  "Address": {...}, //read-only Address object
  "OrderCanExceed": false,
  "QuantityAvailable": 0,
  "LastUpdated": "2022-01-04T00:00:00.00+00:00",
  "AllowAllBuyers": true, 
  "xp": {}

Optionally used in conjunction with InventoryRecordAssignment

"InventoryRecordAssignment": {
   "InventoryRecordID": "",
   "BuyerID": "",
   "UserGroupID": ""

The InventoryRecord resource exists only in the context of a given Product, and can be extended to Product Variants.

  • The ID property is writable and follows the same convention as all other writable IDs in OrderCloud.

  • The OwnerID property is writable only by the Marketplace Owner. Otherwise this ID reflects the Supplier that created the Inventory Record.

  • The Product.Inventory object will remain on the Product resource, even if Inventory Records are associated with the given Product.

    • If any InventoryRecords exist for a product, Product.Inventory.QuantityAvailable will be the derived sum of all InventoryRecord.QuantityAvailable. If you write to it, the value will never be returned unless all InventoryRecords are deleted.

  • Address is a read-only object derived from the AddressID given.

  • Multiple InventoryRecords for the same Product/Address combination are allowed. This can be useful if you need to track different inventory levels for different fulfillment methods.

  • The AddressID used to create an InventoryRecord must be owned by the OwnerID.

  • AllowAllBuyers defaults to true. If you want to control Inventory Records more granularly, set this value to false and use assignments.

  • InventoryRecords are not returned on the Product resource; however, you can use filters on InventoryRecord information in product queries, e.g. v1/me/products?InventoryRecords.AddressID={address1}|{address2}&InventoryRecords.QuantityAvailable=>5.

New Properties

  • If using Inventory Records for a given Product, you must provide an InventoryRecordID on the LineItem in order to track inventory. If any Inventory Records exist for a Product on a LineItem where InventoryRecordID is null, no inventory will be decremented on order submit.


  • Allows an override of InventoryRecordID on a given LineItem

  • Not validated for AllowAllBuyers or explicit assignments
