bol: stock reservation
About this article
This article describes bol's stock reservation feature.
By default, ChannelEngine reserves stock for orders that are still open (i.e.: not shipped yet or canceled on the channel-side). However, there are channels that also allow for stock reservation. Most of them have this disabled by default, however, bol reserves stock by default.
If you have a stock of two for a product, and an order is placed on bol with the quantity of one, the result is a double stock reservation.
Disabling bol's stock reservation
As this double stock reservation can be undesirable in some scenarios (especially if you as a merchant are also doing stock reservations), with bol's V3 API it is possible to disable the stock reservation feature.
To do so, please contact your customer success manager or ChannelEngine's Support team.
