When you configure a new product in the system, please pay attention to Quantity and availability settings.
These settings are used to define whether a specific product is to be sold in a limited or unlimited amount. It is a form of the warehouse that controls how a given product is sold. It allows you to avoid the unpleasant situation when the product is sold out but you continue receiving new orders from your clients.
Stock status - determines the type of your offer for a specific product. “Unlimited" means that your clients can place an unlimited amount of orders for this product.
In this case, the stock level set to 1,000 which means that the system will allow your clients to order only 1,000 items of a specific product jointly.
If you have exceeded the limit of orders in stock and want to sell more, you need to add more products in total. So if you sold 1,000 and want to sell 500 more, you set the limit to 1500.
Minimum order quantity - This is how many products the customer can order at a minimum. Of course, the most natural number is 1. However, you can use this option to create smart promotions. For example, you sell a pizza for 12.99 but only if someone buys three of them. Then you can set this value to three for the created promotion.
Maximum order quantity - This value determines how many products of this type a customer can order in one order. In the following case, the customer will not be able to add more than 444 products of this type to the cart.
