Omnichannel Inventory Management

Manage Quantity Across Channels
What is omnichannel inventory management?
Omnichannel inventory management synchronizes your inventory levels between marketplaces, so that each marketplace knows exactly how much of each product you have on hand.
GeekSeller’s Offering
We have developed a highly sophisticated and flexible system to manage your inventory levels between marketplaces.

External Source of Data

Many of our customers manage their inventory levels from their own systems and send the data to our system by uploading CSV files via FTP. Other sellers may prefer to manage inventory levels from other platforms, such as Shopify.

Using a different system to update your quantities has its cons, but we keep it as an option so that our customers can utilize our infrastructure to transfer inventory levels from one marketplace to another.

Multiple Sources to one Destination

You can also send the sum of two sources to one destination. For example, you can send quantity data from FBA’s quantities to Jet, FBM’s quantities to Walmart, and a sum of the two to eBay.

Multiple Sources of Data

You can redirect quantity data from multiple sources to selected marketplaces. This is very useful, for example, if you want to send quantity data from FBA to Jet and eBay while also sending data from FBM to Walmart.

GeekSeller as the Source

When you manage your inventory changes from a different system, GeekSeller cannot update your quantities to account for orders that come in from other sources. It instead becomes the responsibility of the system to see orders from other marketplaces and adjust inventory levels accordingly.

The most common option is to choose GeekSeller as the main source of quantity data. In the example to the right, the user would see two ‘nodes’ in their GeekSeller Master Panel. Adjustments to inventory levels would be made from GeekSeller and sent out to all connected marketplaces.

This setup also allows us to see all orders that are placed across the connected marketplaces, enabling us to adjust quantities based on orders and then distribute the new values.


Rules allow sellers to create simple, yet powerful parameters to manipulate the quantities sent to specific marketplaces. For example, if you worry about overselling, you can specify that you want to send 50% from a specific node to a specific marketplace, and send 0 if the quantity falls below 5. If a certain marketplace places limits on how much you can sell at a given time, you can create a rule that sends a quantity of 10 to the marketplace whenever you have 10 or more in the connected node.


Our system allows sellers to create virtually any configuration to send quantity information between their warehouses and marketplaces. As long as it makes sense logically, it can be implemented. In the event that a user needs a fringe setup that is not achievable through our pre-built options, we offer custom integrations. Our engineers can work with sellers to implement a solution that fits their needs.

Let us show you around.
