Shopify Multi-Location Inventory

Shopify will soon launch a feature called "Multi-Location Inventory", which will allow you to create additional locations for your inventory.

Cart's Multichannel Management Does Not Currently Support This Feature

If enabled, it may cause your inventory to be desynchronized.

If you're a Cart's Multichannel Management customer using the Shopify integration, you must remove all additional locations from within Shopify. This is a crucial action that must be taken, as location does not need to be attached to individual items in order for Cart's Multichannel Management Shopify connection to break.

Please note: Shopify's Multi-Location Inventory settings are different from the locations you can create locally within Cart's Multichannel Management. You do not need to update any information from within Cart's Multichannel Management.

How to Know If Your Shopify Account Has Multiple Locations Enabled

Not sure if your Shopify account has multiple locations listed? Check your Cart's Multichannel Management account. If you have multiple locations listed in Shopify, you'll see this alert:
