In the catalog prices screen, you can work with a countdown stock. You can set up a countdown stock for one trade item or you can set up a countdown stock for multiple trade items. When a buyer orders trade items via the FloraXchange weekly lists, the Floriday API or your Floriday store, the number of trade items ordered will be counted down from the stock. If the stock is listed as ‘0’, the product can no longer be ordered.
When you set up a counter, it will automatically restart every week. If you don't want to use the counter anymore you can disconnect it. The numbers in the counter can be changed at any time.
The following parts are explained on this page:
Setting up countdown stock per trade item
You can set up a countdown stock for each trade item (or for a number of trade items). This works as follows:
Go to Supply > Direct sales > Catalog prices, and select the trade items that a countdown stock may receive. Subsequently click in the green bar (at the bottom of the screen) at 'quick setup' and subsequently on ‘countdown stock’.
A screen will now appear in which you can set up the counters. Select ‘Add separate counters’. The separate counters ensure that each trade item is given its own counter. The list of counters for the catalogue prices is now sorted by name. This makes it easier to search the list.
As soon as you have set up the counters, you will see a grey cube next to the trade items with the counters in the box with the number of items. This cube therefore shows that a countdown stock has been set up for these trade items. You can adjust the number of pieces at any time.
Unlinking stock (‘disabling’ countdown stock)
Do you no longer wish to make use of a countdown stock? In that case, you should unlink the counters. You can then work again with a standard number of items that aren't being counted down.
Select the trade items for which you want to disable the countdown stock. And click in the green bar (at the bottom of the screen) on snel instellen (quick setup) and subsequently on ‘Unlink stock’. The counters are now off.
Setting up a shared countdown stock for multiple trade items
You can count down multiple trade items from one stock.
Example: A grower supplies one plant as three different trade items, one time separately without extra additions, one time with a special sleeve and one time in a decorative pot. With countdown stock, the grower can ensure that all three trade items count down from the same stock, since the same plant will be used for all three trade items.
How do you set up the countdown stock for multiple trade items?
Go to Supply > Direct sales > Catalog prices, and select the trade items that a countdown stock may receive. Subsequently click in the green bar (at the bottom of the screen) on quick setup and subsequently on ‘countdown stock’.
(You can also work via the 3 dots in the product line, click on the 3 dots and subsequently on countdown stock).
A screen will now appear in which you can set up the counters. Choose ‘New counter’ here. This counter ensures that multiple trade items from the same stock can count down. Give the counter a name and fill in the starting number.
As soon as you have set up the counters, you will see a green cube next to the trade items with the counters in the box with the number of items. This cube therefore shows that a shared countdown stock has been set up for these trade items. You can click on the cube to change the numbers, to give the counter a different name or to delete the counter.
You can also link trade items to an existing counter. You can use this function if you want to have an extra trade item count down from the same stock. Select the trade item and click on ‘Countdown stock’.
You will end up in the screen again where you can set up a counter. Choose ‘Existing counter’ here and select the existing counter that you want to use for this trade item.
You can also edit a set counter. Click on the green cube to get to the editing screen and make the desired changes.
