Inventory Sync
CartRover will only sync inventory to active Etsy products. If your products are inactive because you have not yet started selling, CartRover will sync inventory once you have activated your products as long as the SKU in Etsy matches the SKU in your backend or WMS system.

Automatic Activation of Listings
Etsy does not allow apps like CartRover to set inventory levels to 0 when an item is out of stock. Instead, if an item is out of stock, CartRover will mark it as Disabled/Inactive.
With "Automatic Activation of Listings" enabled, If CartRover detects that a previously active Etsy product becomes inactive, but there is inventory available, CartRover will automatically attempt to re-activate that listing when adjusting the quantity. This may lead to re-listing charges in your Etsy account. This feature is useful to automatically re-activate your Etsy listings once new inventory has arrived at the warehouse.

If you wish to stop selling a product on Etsy, ensure that the inventory level in your WMS is 0. If not, you must add the product SKU to the Item Blacklist in CartRover or turn off the Auto Renew Inactive Products feature in the CartRover Etsy settings.
