Configure Global Warehouses Settings 


This section is part of the Inventory and Warehouse Management topic that provides a general understanding of the inventory and warehouse concepts.

After you created several warehouses in the Inventory > Warehouses section, you should enable and prioritize them to ensure that OroCommerce uses the most efficient and recommended strategy for inventory updates that happen during the Store operations.


The ability to configure warehouses is only available in the Enterprise edition.

To enable and prioritize warehouses:

  1. Navigate to System > Configuration in the main menu.

  2. Select Commerce > Inventory > Warehouses in the menu to the left.


    For faster navigation between the configuration menu sections, use Quick Search.

  3. Enable as many warehouses as you need:

    1. If necessary, click +Add Warehouse.

    2. Select the warehouse name in the Choose a Warehouse list.

You can manage the list of enabled warehouses using the following actions:

  • To disable a warehouse, click x to the right of the priority.

  • To clear the selected warehouse, click x to the right of the warehouse name.

  • To see the complete list of the warehouses in a table view, click bars sign to the right of the warehouse name. The list of warehouses opens in a popup window.

  1. Once all warehouses are enabled and prioritized, click Save Settings.
