Product inventory tracking

Last updated

You can track the number of products in stock in your store. You can add a quantity for each product separately. When a customer buys a product, the  quantity is reduced automatically.

When the quantity reaches zero, the product shows as Out of stock and can’t be ordered. And the store owner gets an email about it.

To set the product quantity:

  1. Go to your store Control Panel → Catalog → Products.
  2. Open the product you want to edit.
  3. Scroll to the Stock Control block.
  4. Click Manage:
