Add stock-on-hand synchronization between DEAR and ShipStation
It is my understanding that when DEAR was first integrated with ShipStation, ShipStation did not have the capability to record inventory counts. Now that ShipStation does have this capability, it would be great to add stock-on-hand synchronization between DEAR and ShipStation when doing DEAR-ShipStation integration using the API Key+Secret for "ShipStation as Sale order source" so that users can see inventory counts in ShipStation and inventory counts on DEAR will automatically be updated when fulfilling orders through ShipStation.
This is particularly useful for those DEAR users that prefer or need to have all orders go to directly from their ecommerce channel(s) to ShipStation. The common situations where DEAR users want or need to go directly from their ecommerce channel(s) to ShipStation and then ShipStation to DEAR, include:
1) When they have a sales channel that is integrated with ShipStation but is not integrated with DEAR (e.g., Walmart, Sears).
2) When they need to fulfill each ecommerce order, but do not want the individual ecommerce orders to go their accounting system (QBO/Xero).
3) They are selling using Amazon Seller Fulfillment Prime which requires integration with only approved fulfillment services, of which, ShipStation is one.
While I do not know exactly how this integration would be implemented, it would appear that it is possible to do it as ShipStation states in one of its help topics on inventory management that "we can display inventory counts managed by certain partners".
**Note: If you also want to see this feature implemented, make sure you "like" this Feature Request, and/or add a comment. DEAR Inventory considers which feature requests to implement based, in part, on user interest/demand in this Feature Request forum.**
