A warehouse in Inventory Planner represents a location in which stock is kept.
Warehouses are automatically created based on the warehouses or locations set up in your connected platform(s). Warehouses will reflect sales and performance metrics for only that location, and settings such as lead time and days of stock can be configured for each warehouse.
Note: For Amazon connections, you will see an FBA 'warehouse' set up for each country in the Amazon region and an FBM warehouse for the entire region. (FBA is fulfilled by Amazon, and FBM is fulfilled by merchant.)
Warehouses cannot be deleted from Inventory Planner. Instead, you should disable any warehouse that you do not need for replenishment, planning, and reporting purposes.
Note: Pricing of your Inventory Planner subscription is partially based on the number of enabled warehouses. Disable warehouses to lower your monthly bill. Combined warehouses and IP warehouses will not contribute to your monthly subscription billing.
Additional warehouses can be configured within Inventory Planner.
Types of warehouse
In addition to an ordinary warehouse, there are two other kinds:
An IP warehouse is used when your store has inventory in a location that does not fulfill customer orders directly. This virtual warehouse is used to transfer stock to other locations that do handle order fulfillment.
A combined warehouse adds together the sales, stock, and/or purchase order information for more than one warehouse.
IP Warehouse (Virtual Warehouse)
An IP warehouse is used when your store has inventory in a location that does not fulfill customer orders directly. This manual warehouse is used to transfer stock to other locations that do handle order fulfillment.

A combined warehouse can be used to see total demand from more than one warehouse. A combined warehouse allows you to choose which warehouses to include to show total demand (sales information). You also specify which warehouse stock to consider.
