Displaying SKU & inventory information

Important!  Wholesale Gorilla's inventory settings will only work if Shopify tracks your product inventory.  Wholesale Gorilla gets inventory information for a product from the product's page in your Shopify admin. 

Displaying SKUs for products

A SKU will only be displayed if you've assigned one to the product listing in the Shopify admin.  Once you have taken this step, you can enable the Display Product SKU setting in the Quick Order Form settings section of our app, and the SKU will then appear alongside the listing on the form.

Selling when out of stock

Out of stock messages will let your customer know that this product is sold out, and prevent more than the remaining inventory from being added to the cart.  This message will appear if you have not allowed overordering on a product listing, and it's stock level reaches zero.

The Quick Order Form links are live by default. You can hide the links to the Quick Order Form by enabling the 'Hide Buttons' option in the 'Quick Order Form' settings area, which will prevent these from appearing on your Online Store.

Notes

  • At this time, the Quick Order Form is a 'one size fits all' form within your site; the collections included upon it will be available to all wholesale customers on your site, and can not be adjusted on a per-customer basis. 
  • Changing the Quick Order Form navigation does not show or hide particular collections from wholesale customers.  To show/hide products from certain customers you can use product exclusions.
