Stale Inventory Report

Whether you've overbought the wrong products or have merchandise on hand with little shelf-life left in it, “stale inventory” is a common (and normal) challenge for online merchants. But no matter what you sell or where you sell it, holding on to stale inventory is a costly business practice.

The Stale Inventory report shows you at a glance what you have in stock and how long it will take to sell out at the current pace. You can search or order by a given column such as 'Months to Sellout'. The ‘Column Visibility’ tab allows control over which fields you view on the page. You have the option to export the data to CSV or PDF.
