When you are participating in a sale, it is difficult to keep up with the stocks of different marketplaces. Thus, Anchanto has a Flash Reservation feature that helps you segregate stocks by the marketplace.

Introduction to Flash Reservation
Stock Reservation: This Flash Reservation promotion reserves the stock for a specific marketplace and the unreserved stocks get allocated to the remaining marketplaces. However, the marketplace for which the stocks are reserved will be able to use the overall stocks (in case if the stocks are still available). This will give you an opportunity to sell unreserved quantities during a flash sale on the platform.
E.g: Let's say the SKU – Product1 (Stock – 100 pcs) is listed on the sales channel Lazada, Shopee, and Zalora. If the Flash Reservation promotion of 60 is created for Lazada, then the stocks pushed to Lazada will be 100 (reserved 60 units + unreserved 40 units), and the remaining unreserved stock of 40 units will be pushed to Shopee and Zalora.
