Steps

If you have a product that appears differently on each of your sales channels (i.e. because of a different SKU, product title, or variation option) you can link or merge quantities, so that your stock levels are automatically adjusted

Product merge - If a single product (with no variations) has a different SKU or product title on different sales channels, you'll need to do a product merge

Variation merge - If a product with variations has different SKUs or product titles on different sales channels, you'll need to do a variation merge

Linking quantities - If a product appears on one sales channel as part of a variation, and on another sales channel singularly, you'll need to link the quantities

For example:

I sell pink socks, one size fits all, under SKU 123 on Amazon and SKU 321 on eBay. I'll need to do a product merge to ensure that the quantities are linked

I sell blue socks with variations (adult or kids), under SKUs 12A and 12K on Amazon, and SKUs 21A and 21K on eBay. I'll need to do a variation merge to ensure that the quantities are linked

I sell yellow socks with variations (adult or kids) under SKUs 13A and 13K on Amazon, but I only sell kids yellow socks on eBay (13K). I'll need to link quantities to ensure that the quantities are linked
