Product inventory tracking

Last updated

You can track the number of products in stock in your Ecwid 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 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

  1. If you set the quantity to Unlimited, a product always available for sale — the product quantity will never be reach 0, so the product will never be sold out. The unlimited quantity works good for services and digital products:
