Multi-Warehouse Inventory is one of the unique features of bagisto. Here we will explain how you can manage multi-warehouse inventory in laravel eCommerce and provide reliable service to your customer.
Having a single inventory source can pose some restrictions for your eCommerce store. For instance, suppose you have only one inventory in Delhi. A Customer from Chennai has ordered some product.
So for delivering that product from Delhi location can have some impacts like delay in delivery of the product, increase transportation cost etc. However, if you have an inventory in Chennai, then the product will reach to the customer very quickly which will further cut down the time and shipping cost.
That is to say, if you are an online seller, then you are most probably prone to common issue of managing multiple inventory sources.
By using Multi-Warehouse Inventory you can easily manage all inventory sources. In bagisto, you can create as many inventory sources and easily manage them.
