In your Shopify online store, products’ stock and locations share a mutual relation in the orders allocation field. In order to arrange your online store in a better way, matching the products’ stock and the location that can help assigning the order is a step that you can not miss.

By default, when a new product is added, it will be stocked in your store’s current shipping origin. If you need another location for the products to be stocked so as to make it easier for your customers to order the products, or if the products are no longer available in the stocked location, you can use the bulk editor to edit the location that stocks the products. As long as all of your products are stocked in at least one location and the products have no unfulfilled orders or tranfers that require the inventory of that product, your actions are allowed with Shopify.

With just some simple steps that can be applied to both your Desktop or your mobile device, by using the bulk editor from our Inventory page, you can easily answer the question How to change the locations the stock products by using the bulk editor on Desktop.
