Explaining Sumtracker features through an example

You can check all the features that we offer here.

Here is an example of a seller and how she can use Sumtracker features to help her in her business.

Multichannel Inventory sync

Let’s say, Sarah is a seller based in New York, USA. She sells furniture online through her website built on Shopify and through Amazon.

She has 10 pieces of Coffee tables. Now she has updated the inventory of the coffee tables on Amazon and Shopify (her website) as 10.

She gets an order of 2 Coffee tables on her website. The inventory on Shopify becomes 8, while on Amazon its still 10.

Before using Sumtracker, she used to manually go to Amazon and update the inventory to 8. The inventories have to match, otherwise Sarah risks overselling the tables.

After she started using Sumtracker, she does not need to do this manually. Sumtracker will automatically update the inventory on Amazon when there is a sale on Shopify and vice-versa.

Bundles Inventory automation

Sarah also has 30 chairs. She wants to sell a combination of 2 chairs and 1 coffee table. This combination is called a bundle. She only maintains the inventory the chairs and tables individually. And ships the bundle when she gets an order. So how does she update the inventory of the bundle?

Before using Sumtracker, she had to manually update the inventory of the chairs and coffee table bundle on her store based on the individual products she is having in stock. In addition, the tables and chairs had to be adjusted manually when she got an order for the bundle.

Now, she does not need to worry about it. Sumtracker knows how many chairs and tables are available. Based on their count, Sumtracker updates the bundles inventory to both her stores automatically. When she gets an order of this bundle, Sumtracker reduces 2 chairs and 1 coffee table from her inventory and updates them on her stores.

Purchase Orders

The coffee tables are selling fast and there are only 2 of them left. Sarah gets a notification from Sumtracker that tables are low in stock. She wants to purchase more tables from her Supplier. She checks in Sumtracker that 15 tables were sold in the past month and decides to order 15 more.

Before using Sumtracker, she used to make purchase orders in excel sheets or ask her accountant to make them.

Now, she can easily create them in the Sumtracker itself. She is also updated about how many tables are incoming from her Supplier at anytime.

Multi-location Inventory

As Sarah expands her business, she wants to open another warehouse on the west coast in California. So she requires an advanced system that can keep track of inventory at 2 locations and 2 stores!

Without Sumtracker, she would have to maintain locations inventory and manage the stock transfers between locations on excel sheets manually.

Now, Sumtracker takes care of it and she just has to refer to a single dashboard to check the status of inventory at both locations as well as the stores.


Sarah wants to know the total sales done and best selling products in the last month.

Before using Sumtracker, she had to login to both Amazon and Shopify accounts, export the reports and add them up in an excel sheet to know these numbers.

Now, she can access combined reports for both stores as well as her inventory easily in Sumtracker.
