Performing Bin Cycle Counts

Understanding Bin Cycle Count

You may want to compare quantities in warehouse bins against what Sellercloud has recorded. Skustack’s Bin Cycle Count feature helps you to scan bins and then run audit reports to determine count discrepancies.

This can be done by having one employee do the inventory audits in the warehouse, which will create a report of what you used to have versus what you are resetting the inventory to, and the discrepancy(called the Delta). Another employee would go through the audit report, either in Sellercloud or in Skustack, and commit the changes to the database.

Bin inventory can be automatically adjusted based on scanned counts.

Cycle counts should preferably be done outside of regular business hours so you do not run into issues with shipping orders while bin contents are being counted.

Accessing Bin Cycle Count

  1. Log into Skustack in a bin-enabled warehouse.
  2. Navigate to the Bin Tab and then scroll to the Bin Cycle Count card.
  3. Click the magnifying glass to display the Cycle Count page.
