First not 100% sure if this is what I need.
I have lots of items I have one of, obviously no need for inventory on those as when sold it is gone.
I have others that I have 5 - 20 of same item most I will never get again. My present system is to put quantity in auctiva quantity box and also at bottom of listing I put quantity I have just as back up. Not so sure that is ideal inventory system, but that is it for now. When I end item through ebay (every 30 days) and relist (through auctiva) if I have more than one, I check to see if one or more sold and go in and go into listing, updated quantity and post through auctiva onto ebay with new quantity.
Anyone using that can give me pros or cons of doing inventory through auctiva. Or even other method they found better/easier (preferably a cheap alternative) if you have found one (besides pencil/pen and paper). Obviously prefer something that will automatically update as items are sold.
Also with inventory, if I put in quantity of 5 in actual listing, post and one of 5 sells, listing ends, when I post again, will I still have to go into listing and change to 4 or will inventory system automatically do this?
Thanks for any help anyone may offer in doing this.
