Global Inventory Settings Notes:

In the global settings, you are able to change your in/out/restock messages, as well as choose what stock values you would like to display on your storefront. 

In Stock Message: Change the message that shows for products that are in stock. 

Out of Stock Message: Change the message that shows for products are out of stock. 

Show Stock Value: You have the ability to configure the stock values you want to show to users on your site: 

  • stock message, location and count 
  • stock message and count 
  • location and count 
  • stock message, location and count 

Hide "Add to Cart" button if no stock will restrict users from buying products which are out of stock. This allows you to remove the "Add to Cart" button when a product is marked as out of stock. This prevents a user from attempting to purchase a product that you don't currently have in stock. 

Enforce stock check when adding to the cart will offer the user a prompt when the qty added is greater than the stock available.
