With the Inventory module in iThemes Sales Accelerator, you can create multiple warehouses for your inventory.

To start creating warehouses, go to iThemes Sales Accelerator > Inventory > List Warehouses in your site's dashboard and click the Add New Warehouse button.

When creating your first warehouse, you'll see the following note at the top of the creation page:

Since this is your first warehouse, all product stock will be allocated to it.  If you need to change it after creating all your warehouses, please use the Stock Transfer or the Stock Import feature move your inventory to the appropriate location.

As it says, once you've created your first warehouse, all of your inventory will be added to that warehouse.  You can use the Stock Transfer or the Stock Import features to adjust your inventory once you've created all of your warehouses.

Name

The first step to creating your warehouse will be to give it a name.  This can be anything you want it to be, such as the location of the warehouse.

Slug

You'll then create a Slug for this warehouse.  Again, this can be anything you want it to be, including the warehouse name.  This is used for the Stock Import feature.

Address

Next, you can add the address information for the warehouse.

Email

You'll then enter the email address of the contact you want to be notified of orders to be filled for an order from that warehouse.  You can include multiple email addresses here, just separate them using a comma.

Filter warehouse by country

Enabling this feature allows the warehouse selected for shipping to be filtered by the customer's location.

Countries

Here you can select the countries that will use this particular warehouse

States

You can also limit this warehouse to states.  If you leave this field empty, the warehouse can ship to any state.

Exclusive

If you want the warehouse to only be used by customers in the countries you set, you can set the warehouse to exclusive.

Prevent

Enabling the Prevent option will not allow customers from the selected countries to use any other warehouse.

Global Stock Priority

Lastly, you'll set the priority for the warehouse.  Based on your settings, this will determine which warehouse inventory is pulled from when an order is placed.  The lower the priority number, the higher priority.  For example, a priority of 1 is higher than 2 and the inventory will be pulled from the warehouse with a priority of 1 if the stock is available.

Once you have entered all the information, click the Save Warehouse button.  When you have completed creating all of your warehouses, they will all show under List Warehouses.

Warehouses on the Product Level

Once you have created your warehouses, you'll want to go into your products and enable the Enable stock management at product level setting under the Inventory tab.

With this setting enabled, you will be able to view each of your products and the stock available in each.

You can adjust the stock quantity in each warehouse from here.  However, it does not create any type of record of the change so if you need this for reporting, you will want to make this change with the Stock Transfer feature.
