Stock and Availability Management


The fully automated Stock calculation takes into consideration products that are reserved in open orders when defining availability. Also, you can define never-out-of-stock products, such as digital downloads. In contrast to Stock, Availability considers not only the number of products in the warehouse, but currently open orders, too. Product Availability defines if a product can or cannot be sold in the shop.

  • Pre-calculated availabilities for optimized performance
  • Aggregated availability for abstract products
  • Is-never-out-of stock products


For most of the e-commerce platforms stock does not reflect real availability of products, since stock is just the physical number of products in your warehouse which does not take reserved products into account. In contrast to stock, availability considers not just number of products in the warehouse, but current open orders as well.

In general, product availability defines if the product can or cannot be sold in the shop.

From this article you will get to know how product availability is checked and calculated, how products are reserved, how availability can be imported to the database as well as how availability per store works.
