Get alerts for low or out of stock products

Learn how to set up alerts for low or out of stock products in QuickBooks Online Plus.

Do you track your products’ quantity on hand? Set up reorder points to keep tabs on your inventory. A reorder point is the threshold when you should reorder more of an inventory item. QuickBooks uses reorder points to let you know what’s running low and what’s out of stock. We’ll help you set them up, so you’ll always have what your customers want.

Set up your products’ reorder points

You have two ways to set up your products’ reorder points.

  • If you have new products, you can enter reorder points when you add what you sell in QuickBooks.
  • If you have saved products that don’t have reorder points, edit those products to add. Follow the steps below to do this.

Edit a product to add a reorder point

  1. Go to Sales, then Products and Services.
  2. Find the product you want to have a reorder point.
  3. Select Edit in the Action column.
  4. In the Reorder point field, add the threshold when you should reorder more stock.
  5. Select Save and close.
