Max Lead Time Explained
Max lead time is the maximum number of days it would take to restock your inventory – from the day you place the order, to the day they are delivered to your warehouse. Obviously, if you’re restocking from same country as your warehouse, the lead time will lower than if you’re restocking from overseas. The maximum lead time will also vary depending on whether you’re shipping via air, land or sea.
If the max lead time is set to a lower amount, the reorder point will be lower as well – it takes into account the average rate of sales for the particular product, calculated from your sales data.
You can set the lead time for every individual SKU as shown in the video above, or globally through Settings.
