Bulk Data Exchange: Overview

Kibo clients typically have extensive inventory data to share. Bulk Data Exchange facilitates that inventory management. While it is possible to update inventory using REST APIs, Kibo best practices suggest using the Bulk Data Exchange process for most clients.

Kibo’s Inventory Import and Export processes allow clients to manage inventory data throughout multiple fulfillment locations with the exchange of a single file. The Inventory Import process imports a fulfillment location’s real-time inventory data into Kibo for processing. The Inventory Export process exports the inventory data that is stored in Kibo and transmits it to the client’s front-end website when needed.¬†For client business stakeholders, Transactional Logs report sales, credits, and returns that are useful in reconciliation.
