1. Head to the Exports Section
From the main admin centre, click into the products screen.
From the products screen, select Export, along the top of the page.
Below the Product Exports section you’ll see the Export Pseudo Stock button.
2. Applying the Correct Filters
Clicking on the button will open a dialogue box with filter options. You can select All or filter by Channels, Suppliers, and Pseudo Types.
Cloud Commerce Pro will then generate a file according to your filters, and it will appear in a list below.
Once appeared, hit the actions > download option to get the file.
3. Understanding the Psuedo Stock Spreadsheet
Once you are in the Psuedo stock file, you will notice two columns per channel.
These will display the sales channel followed by either _Pseudo_Type. or _Pseudo_Stock. Below is a short summary on what these mean;
_Pseudo_Type - The type of Pseudo stock you wish to set (These are displayed further down)
_Pseudo_Stock - The stock figure of the Pseudo stock you wish to set
If the '_Pseudo_Type' column displays an 'X' this means the product is not on that sales channel
If the '_Pseudo_Type' is set to 0, this will display real stock
4. Choosing the Best Type of Pseudo Stock
For an in depth visual guide to pseudo stock modes, click the link below:
0 - Psuedo Stock Off
Use this option to turn off pseudo stock for the product.
1 - Static
Static Pseudo Stock remains at the value you set it to no matter what. Every time your real stock value changes, your Pseudo Stock level will stay at your chosen value
2 – Decrementing Regardless of Real Stock
Your Pseudo Stock will begin at whatever value you set. It will then count down with every sale made until it reaches 0, becoming unavailable until you update the figure.
3 – Decrementing Maintained by Real Stock
Your Pseudo Stock will begin at whatever value you set. It will stay at that value until the real stock value drops below your value, and will then count down with real stock values.
4 – FBA as Pseudo Stock
Use this option to tie your stock value on this sales channel to your Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) inventory. Note that you will still have to set the channel up to use FBA as the only fulfilment method.
5. Uploading the File

Head back into the products screen, this time, press the import button instead of export.
