Hi. How can we help?

Adding new stock input

As of June 2023, the legacy Stock feature is no longer available to new customers. Existing customers who currently use the feature will still have access to it.

If you're interested in managing your inventory, we recommend exploring our Inventory add-on. Get in touch with your account manager or contact us to discuss whether this add-on could benefit your business.

With the New stock input function, you can add new quantities of items to your stock locations, such as when goods are delivered to your restaurant from a supplier. Performing a stock input adds new units of an item into a stock location.

  1. Log in to the Back Office with your Lightspeed credentials.
  2. From the navigation menu, select Stock > New stock input.
  3. Fill in the stock input settings, then select the Save button.
