Shopify's inventory management system is complex, let's help you simplify it...
When you publish a digital standalone from Single Music, we create the digital album product in your store. By default, Single will be set to manage the inventory and fulfillment, so you can set it and forget it.
Be sure to leave "Inventory Managed By" as is to ensure Single can automatically mark orders of the digital album fulfilled for you in Shopify.
What about physical products not created by Single Music?
Every store's workflow is different and we don't want to cause you or your fulfillment partners any headaches. Single Music only needs to manage the fulfillment of digital standalone products we create.
Any other product's inventory can be set to the default of "Shopify" or any other fulfillment partners you may have.
