Setting up Multi Source Inventory (MSI)

How can i configure magento for a business that wants to sell from 8 shops and manage inventory from the admin. I have been looking at MSI but don’t really understand how to implement it in my version of magento (2.3.1).

I currently don’t have any experience using the new MSI that Magento launched with 2.3. I really wanted to try it, until I learned that you need to pay about $100 per month for the “Magento Shipping” service to use it. So, I never bothered.

I’ve never worked with a business that required an MSI, so I’ve never tried one before.

If you’re looking for something more affordable, you could trying Advanced MSI by Amasty. Again, no idea how it compares.
