Product inventory tracking

Last updated

Track the number of products in your Ecwid store by adding a stock quantity for each product separately. Ecwid adjusts the quantity automatically when customers complete purchases from your store.

Once the quantity reaches zero, Ecwid notifies the owner via email, adds an “Out of stock” note to your catalog, and suspends purchases of the item.

You can also track stock levels of product options like Sizes and Colors if you create variations out of them.

To set the product quantity:

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

Click Manage under stock control

  1. Enter the number of products in stock:

Enter the quantity of products in stock

“Unlimited” designates the product as always available. Since the product quantity will never reach zero, the product will never show as “Out of stock”. This works well for services and digital products:

Unlimited number of products in stock

You can also set up an automated message when your stock reaches a certain limit. Enter the desired stock, and we’ll notify you via email when your product reaches this limit.
