This topic is intended for administrators and developers with administration access rights in Optimizely.

A warehouse is the physical inventory location with an address from where product items are shipped or picked up by customers. As an e-commerce manager in an organization with many fulfillment centers, you can define and manage physical store locations, multiple stock locations, stock figures for a product variant (SKU) by warehouse, and total product availability among warehouses.

Warehouses can be set up differently, and are often integrated with external systems. You can check in-store stock, reserve and pick up in-store, and deliver to store. By default in Optimizely Customized Commerce, you specify the warehouse where the item is being stored when you create a product variant.
