What are reorder & replenish rules and how to set them up

To Reorder – Is under the inventory tab which this amount indicates an estimate of how much is needed to reorder from vendor to have enough stock in warehouse.

Replenish – Is under the listing tab which this amount indicates an estimate of how much is needed to send/replenish to Amazon/fulfillment center.

How to setup the rules:

Reorder rules

Replenish rules 

How to set up the reorder rules so the estimated amount to reorder from the vendor will be calculated based on your preference:

Navigate to “settings” and select “Reorder Rules”

You will now see 2 rules. (when reordering you can always select which rule to use so the amount will be calculated according to the rule selected.)

Customizing the rule. Click on a rule and you will have the options to customize. 

Rule Name – You can choose how you wish to name this rule.

Days To Count – Is how many days in the past the system should estimate. The system will take the total sold in the past 30 days (or whatever amount of days you enter) and make an average per day.

Day Supply Amount To Reorder – Is for how many days supply you want. If you select 60 days the system will calculate the average sold per day and multiply by 60 days.

Same Days Last Year – Is mainly used for seasonal items. It will calculate the amount compared to last year same time.

Combine Real Time – When having mains and subs and some of them are FBA products and some are FBM, If you still have stock at FBA for any of the products within this group of mains & subs and you turn on the “Combine Real Time” setting, the system would not give you an amount to reorder for the FBM products . 

Out Of Stock – If selected, the system will deduct the amount of days the item was out of stock. The system will make the average only with the days that the item was in stock. 

Buy Box – If selected the system will deduct the days the item didn’t have the buy box. The system will make the average only with the days the item had the buy box. 

Show Full Amount – By default,  the system calculates how much needed and deducts the amount in stock and on open POs. Example: 100 is needed for 60 days supply and you have 10 in warehouse, it will suggest reordering 90. But if “show full amount” is selected, the system will show the full amount needed to reorder without deducting quantity on hand.

Supplier ETA – By each vendor you have the option of adding eta. Meaning how long it takes to receive items from that supplier. If “Supplier ETA” is selected the system will automatically consider the time it takes and notify that amount of time in advance that you need to reorder.

Sales Rank – It will calculate according to percentage if the sales rank was better or worse.

Please note: It may take up to an hour from when you save your new settings until the system will calculate the new reorder suggestions. 

How to set up the replenish rules so the estimated amount to replenish/send to the fulfillment center will be calculated based on your preference:

Navigate to “settings” and select “Replenish Rules”

You will now see 2 rules. (when replenishing, you can always select which rule to use so the amount will be calculated according to the rule selected.)

Customizing the rule. Click on a rule and you will have the options to customize. 

Rule Name – You can choose how you wish to name this rule.

Days To Count – This is how many days in the past the system should estimate. The system will take the total sold in the past 30 days (or whatever amount of days you enter) and make an average per day.

Same Days Last Year – Is mainly used for seasonal items. It will calculate the amount compared to last year same time.

Out Of Stock – If selected, the system will deduct the amount of days the item was out of stock. The system will make the average only with the days that the item was in stock. 

Buy Box – If selected the system will deduct the days the item didn’t have the buy box. The system will make the average only with the days the item had the buy box. 

Show Full Amount – By default,  the system calculates how much needed and deducts the amount in stock already at Amazon/fulfillment center. Example: 100 is needed for 60 days supply and you have 10 there already it will suggest sending in only 90. But if “show full amount” is selected, the system will show the full amount needed to replenish/send in without deducting the stock there already.
