Publishing Inventory early

There may be times when you want to publish your inventory ahead of time – so it appears in your shop before it’s received in the warehouse and put on the shelf. This could be useful if you want to sell inventory during a certain time period.

If there is less inventory than expected, you run the risk of some orders not being able to ship and being placed in an insufficient inventory status.
