You may be overestimating your delivery promise when setting it manually because you haven't taken into account your customer's location in relation to your available inventory. With our multi-location inventory service, your delivery promise will be more accurate by using the closest location to the customer that has inventory. Multi-location inventory is a free API solution that offers the following benefits:

Accurate and automated deliveries

Calculates delivery dates using the closest available inventory locations, and ship methods you already use.

Simplify shipping templates

Configures a single shipping template for all of your locations.

Increase available inventory

Shows customers the most accurate available inventory.

Automated inventory updates

Automatically syncs your inventory count per location.
