The Green Bits team knows that a fast register load time is crucial to quickly checking out customers. Inventory lists with thousands of products can lead to longer load times.
Green Bits regularly cleans up any inventory that has a quantity of 0 for more than 120 days by marking it as Not For Sale. As a result, only current, For Sale inventory will be loaded onto the register which ensures a faster startup time.
Inventory cleanup is automatic and runs on a daily basis.
What does this mean for returns on the register?
There's also an added benefit. Inventory Managers now have peace of mind knowing that there is a Return Policy built into the software.
Removing older inventory ensures that returns and refunds can only be made on relevant items that are less than 120 days old.
If a product was marked Not For Sale and you'd like to still be able to sell it or it's restocked, find the product in the back office, click to view the details, then go to the Inventory tab and click Show All:
Under Status, change the item to For Sale:
When you toggle the For Sale status that sets the updated at date to the current date/time and we wont mark it Not For Sale again for 120 days.
Only .1% (one tenth of one percent) of returns happen after 120 days.
