It’s easy to track your products in Zettle Go. Use the easy uploader, edit the number of products in stock and select ‘inventory tracking’. When you add an item to the cart and make a sale, it will automatically update the number in the inventory. For detailed inventory tracking for kitchens and ingredients, we integrate with KitchenCut.
The inventory will never prevent you from selling. If you have a product on your shelf, you can sell it using Zettle, even if you are “out of stock” in the app.
“Dead stock” is a term used to describe old items of stock that have been in storage for a long time. In restaurants, it’s important to avoid dead stock so that perishable items don’t go out of date before they can be used up; while in retail, packaging and designs can alter, collect dust or go out of fashion. That’s why it’s vital to use a “First-In, First-Out” or “FIFO” approach to inventory management – to ensure a healthy stock rotation. You can do this by always adding new stock to the back, not the front.
“I had no means of stock control whatsoever before – what you saw in the back was what there was. But now, I can just look on my phone.”
