In Product demo

  • Matching vs. Mapping
  • Various questions about inventory management


These are the questions asked during the webinar: 

1) Does a child item resemble assembly items?

2) How do you keep a working relationship between work in progress inventory and finished inventory through QB?

3) How do you account for inventory if you have it physically?

4) So you just need to make sure the SKUs match in you store and in QB, what if they don't?

5) What is the benefit of creating child products in QB vs having store options SKUs match individual products?

6) I have 2682 items in QB, 1056 in my online store and 690 matching and 8 mapped- can this be updated in eCC or do I have to update them in the online store?

7) Where should you insure the online SKU and QB item name/number match?

8) Is there a class on how to process and post sell (orders) to QB that helps manage inventory?

9) In my Amazon store a lot of the products aren't mapped because there is a * added before the item number.  Where did that come from?
