Bol fictional stock

ChannelDock introduces a strategic feature designed to minimize direct competition on and obscure sales data from third-party trackers.

How It Works:
  • By setting your max. stock amount to, for example, 120, ChannelDock will report to that your inventory is 120, even if it exceeds this number. When a sale occurs, you might expect it to drop to 119, but ChannelDock keeps it at 120. This way, sales trackers miss registering a sale, so it won't count as a sale in the sales tracker software, thereby distorting the recorded amount of sales.
Key Points to note:
  1. Stock Less Than Maximum: If your actual inventory is below your set maximum (e.g., less than 120 items), ChannelDock will accurately synchronize and report your actual inventory to so you don't sell items that you don't have in stock.

  2. Stock Exceeds Maximum: Should your inventory surpass the set maximum (e.g., more than 120 items), ChannelDock will display 120 as the visible stock on until it drops below 120. Only then will your actual stock levels be synchronized.

  3. Max stock not updating: Stock levels are updated on with each order placed. If no sales occur for a product since setting its max stock, the reported stock level remains unchanged until an order is made.

How to set it up:

Navigate to Connections -> Sales Channels and click the settings icon for your bol account. Here change the Max. stock amount to a number that exceeds the largest potential order quantity and "Save changes"Screenshot 2024-02-27 at 16.49.03.png

This functionality is designed to safeguard your competitive positioning by preventing sales data from influencing market dynamics or being accurately tracked by third-party applications.
