About Fulfillment Centers (aka Ship Nodes)
A seller can store their items across multiple fulfillment centers, also known as ship nodes. When an order is created, the supply chain management system verifies which fulfillment center is closest to the shipping address. Now the item gets fulfilled from the nearest ship node.
Each item gets mapped to the ship node that holds the inventory for that item SKU. You can fetch inventory for an item at each of the fulfillment centers with the Inventory APIs.
Verify inventory available to sell
When you sell an item, it takes several days before it is released from the fulfillment center. If you check item inventory during this period, you will still see the total inventory for this item, even though you have less available.
To make sure you have adequate inventory for new orders, we created a new parameter
availToSellQty. You can verify how many items are currently in-stock and available to sell.
