What is Inventory?                                                                                   

The AS4 plugin allows auctioneers to list individual items for sale on their Auction Services website. Think of these items as good until sold listings not tied to a catalogue of an auction also commonly referred to as listings or classifieds. Such items are published in Wavebid via Marketing Task the same way Auctions and Lots are.                                  Inventory.png                                                                                                                          Inventory2.png
