"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" - Leonardo Da Vinci.

At Terminal we strive to create a seamless experience for all customers using our platform. We've
applied this same philosophy to the design of our inventory management system, which allows you
to control your store's inventory with just a few clicks. By default, inventory is updated whenever
users make purchases on your store. However, we realise that some of our customers also generate
offline transactions and require the current state of their inventory to be reflected on the store. For this
purpose, we created this system to allow all merchants to update inventory manually. Here's how it works:

Step 1: Log in to Terminal & navigate to the products section.

‍ ‍Use the main navigation menu on the left to find the products section.

Step 2: Click on edit icon (pencil-shaped) next to product inventory.

‍Clicking on the pencil icon brings up the edit inventory input field.

Step 3:  Enter a new number for inventory, and click save.

The save button will flash green when inventory is updated. If product is out of stock, simply enter 0.

That's it! Once you click the save button, the inventory will be updated and all changes will be reflected on your website.
