There is a third party integration (By @AdVision) that allows for a multi store integration and automatically moving stock around.
Another partner, Accumula has made a similar integration you might want to check out: https://www.lightspeedhq.com/integrations/accumula/
These options are way to expensive. We might want to expand with an extra brick store. But this needs to work - it's what Lightspeed itself stands for. And Lightspeed Retail has already got the perfect stock management system for this. Just make the connection! The data is already there.
I can't believe that a software company that promotes "omnichannel" can't make their web store show inventory for more than one location. Ridiculous.
What's the latest on this? We are getting ready to launch our ecom and this is a "must have" basic functionality that is surprising to be missing.
One thing to put this into perspective. Lightspeed started out on the POS side and just recently ventured into the e-com side. While Shopify is the total opposite. Their e-com just enabled support for multiple locations in 2018.
Agreed though, in that any solution that touts itself as being omnichannel needs to support this from the get-go.
