Inventory transfers to another location (Transfer out)

When you transfer stock from an outlet to another outlet, you can record a "Transfer out" event and specify the destination, if the following conditions are met:

  1. You have done at least one stock count for the item.

  2. The same item is already in the destination's inventory.

  3. Item is using the same inventory UOM in the destination's inventory.

A "Transfer in" event will be automatically created at the destination's inventory.

If conditions #2 and #3 listed above are not present, you can only create a "Transfer out" event without specifying the destination.

Inventory transfers from another location (Transfer in)

You can also record a "Transfer in" event and specify the source location, if the following conditions are met:

  1. You have done at least one stock count for the item.

  2. The same item is already in the source location's inventory.

  3. Item is using the same inventory UOM in the source location's inventory.

However, unlike when recording a "Transfer out" event, recording a "Transfer in" event will NOT automatically create a corresponding "Transfer out" event at the source location's inventory.

If conditions #2 and #3 listed above are not present, you can only create a "Transfer in" event without specifying the source.

What if I want to reject an incoming transfer?

As Zeemart does not have a feature to reject incoming transfers, we recommend you write off the event by creating a 'transfer out' event back to the origin, or recording the rejected stock as wastage.
