Need Inventory Control App *FULFILLED* This post is outdated

We have a large inventory of used books, and each copy of a book equals one sku in our shop.  Since we catalog about 1000 books per week, we will soon exceed our Shopify sku limit.  We need an app that will let us periodically (preferably at the press of a single button) delete all products that have a quantity of 0.  We don't need a lot of fine-tuned control, like the ability to omit certain things.  

We do have gift cards for sale on the site as well, which have inventory control turned off (i.e., we can sell infinite numbers), and those shouldn't be affected by this app.

We intend to perform the operation about once per week, so there could be 3,000-5,000 products being deleted at a time.  If the price is too low, please give me an estimate of what you think it would cost.

Thanks in advance for considering our project.

Hi Larry!

This may already take care of your needs. Have you looked at merchantOS?

Thanks Jamie, but we have a POS system and we're not really looking to replace it.  We just need a way to remove from Shopify all items that have sold.

Hi Larry,

I just sent you an email about this.

 

Cheers,

Hi Larry

I've made an app that should meet your needs. I've sent it for approval, so it should hopefully show up in the marketplace soon.

It's an app that will go through and delete your products with 0 inventory. 

In the meantime, you can see a short video of it in action here: http://vimeo.com/13994842

Let me know if you don't want to wait for the approval process from shopify, I can give you the direct url to install it. It does have a demo mode, so you can test to make sure it meets your needs.

cheers,

m
