Inventory Tracking settings for BigCommerce

To enable quantity synchronization for your products, you’ll need to activate Inventory Tracking in your BigCommerce account.

To Update a Single Product

Go to the Inventory tab. There, you’ll see three options:

  • If your product is a single product, select Track inventory for this product
  • If your product has variations, select Track inventory by options (from the ‘Options’ tab above)


To Update in Bulk

Solution 1

Using a CSV file, add the header “Track Inventory”. In the column, enter one of the following phrases for each product:

  • “by product” for single products
  • “by option” for products with variations (you assign this value to the parent product, not children):

Solution 2

Go to Products tab. There you need to choose “Bulk edit” and click “Confirm”.

On the next page you need to change “Track inventory” to “Product level” or “Variant level”.

When it’s done, click “Save” in the bottom right corner.
