The Quantity Bulk Edit function

In Nembol you can bulk change the inventory count of your products. You can do that:

  1. Before bulk-listing to a channel
  2. and even after you already listed your products!

Bulk edit item quantity on Etsy, Shopify, and eBay

  • As stated on Etsy’s official guide, you can’t bulk edit quantity on Etsy directly.
  • On eBay, you can mass-edit up to 500 live items at the time, but eBay itself suggests relying on third-party developers, here.
  • Neither of these two solutions allows you to bulk-edit quantities on all your channels at the same time. The only valid alternative is using Shopify: when updating your listings on your Shopify account, Nembol syncs the edits across every other channel (connected to Nembol).

However, bulk editing product quantity on Nembol is waaaay faster.

Change quantities in bulk on multiple products

This is how our tool works:

  • After you imported your items from any channel into Nembol, you publish them on additional channels. Up to 14 different ones, to be precise.
  • When the Quantity Sync function is active, your inventory is automatically aligned after every sale. Meaning that the stock count is synced in real-time, based on the number you have in Nembol, and this number is reduced every time you sell something.
  • With the Quantity Bulk Edit tool (found in the “actions” button), you can quickly change the quantity of a product and all its variations. By selecting more than one product, you can change the stock count of multiple items at the same time.

Let’s see an example of bulk editing

  1. Select a bunch of products you want to change the quantity of.
  2. Click on the Actions button in the top-left corner.
  3. Select Quantity Bulk Edit.
  4. Type in a number of your choice.
  5. Save by clicking “Modify products”.

Nembol will change the quantity to the number you’ve chosen. If the product has variations, Nembol will change each variation.

The new inventory count will be updated on all your channels. This process may take some time, up to a few minutes, depending on how many products you have selected, on the current server traffic, and on the channel (Amazon is usually the slowest).

This function is especially useful when you quickly need to restock items on multiple channels.
