Why are products with a forecast of 0 in my purchasing advice?

Despite the fact that a product has a forecast of 0, it can still end up in the order advice. This may be because it is a new product, or because there is not enough sales history available.

Despite the fact that a product has a forecast of 0, it can still end up in the order advice. This can be for two reasons:

  • The product has never been sold. Optiply sees this as a new product. As a result, Optiply advises to have 1 in stock.
    For more information, see: New product
  • The product has a history of less than five registered sales days. Here too, Optiply considers the product to be a new product, and it is therefore recommended to buy 1.

    Optiply has too little information for these products to give a good advice. You can see this by the color of the dot on the purchasing page. See an example of purchasing advice for new products below. The red dot indicates that Optiply cannot give good advice and that it is important that you adjust these advices according to your own knowledge.
