Inventory

This tab will only appear if you have enabled Track Inventory at the store level. Use the Edit Product > Inventory tab to:

Track Product: Check this box to enable inventory tracking for the current product. You must also enable inventory tracking at the store level.
Increase Stock By: Decrease Stock By: Use these fields to tell the system what quantity you have of the current product. After you enable inventory tracking and you tell the system what your inventory levels are, the software tracks purchases and automatically adjusts your inventory levels.
In Stock Message (Short) In Stock Message (Long) Low Stock Message (Short) Low Stock Message (Long) Out of Stock Message (Short) Out of Stock Message (Long) Limited Stock Message Please see Inventory Management to learn how to use and control these messages.
Track Low Stock Level: Low Stock Level:

Tracking low stock has several effects:

  • You can set up automatic emails so that you are notified when inventory reaches your low stock level (see Catalog > Inventory Tab > Email Notification ).
  • You can use the low stock level to create a kind of "reserve" for your inventory, if you want to make sure that you always have a few items on hand. For example, let's say you have quantity 5 of an item on hand, and you set the low stock level to 3. If you use the default "In Stock Message (Long)": %inv_instock% available for immediate delivery customers will see the message:

    Instock

    Because the %inv_instock% token is calculated as: current stock - low stock level

  • Low stock level:
    • Default: Uses the low stock level that is set at the store level.
    • Other: If you set a low stock level for a product, it supersedes the store default low stock level.
Track Out of Stock Level: Hide Out of Stock Products: Out of Stock Level:

Tracking out of stock has several effects:

  • You can set up automatic emails so that you are notified when inventory reaches your out of stock level (see Catalog > Inventory Tab > Email Notification ).
  • You can use the out of stock level to create a kind of "reserve" for your inventory, if you want to make sure that you always have a few items on hand. For example, let's say you have quantity 5 of an item on hand, and you set the out of stock level to 3. When your inventory level reaches quantity 3 on an item, customers will see the out of stock message. If you have "Hide Out of Stock Products" enabled, the product will not be displayed in your on-line store.
  • If you set "Track Out of Stock Level", "Hide Out of Stock Products", or "Out of Stock Level" to default, the store level setting will be used.
