About transferring stock between locations

With Square for Retail Plus, you can transfer stock from one location to another, transfer individual items, or move your inventory in bulk.

Before you begin

In order to transfer stock between locations, you need to assign location availability to each item. Location availability can be assigned when creating an item from your Item Library, or using the item import tool.

Transfer and view past transfers

To transfer stock between locations:

  1. Log into your Square Dashboard and navigate to Items & Orders > Items

  2. Click Actions > Transfer Stock. From here you can begin your stock transfer.

  3. Select both the source and destination locations.

  4. Choose the items to transfer and enter the transfer quantity. Take note of the current source location stock levels to ensure you have enough stock to support the transfer.

  5. Click Complete Transfer.

Once you complete the transfer, you can view the order information at any time — including location details, product name, date and time — all from your History log. Each transfer is assigned a unique transfer number to help identify past transfers.

To filter your history to only view item transfers, click All Adjustment Types and deselect all filters except Transferred.
