When you select this option the number of products remaining in stock will be displayed in the store. You can define in out of stock message, which will be shown if you run out of stock.
If you select this option a traffic light style display will indicate the availability of stock to your customers.
You can set when the colours will change to display the low in stock warning.
This option allows you to accept orders for products, even when they are no longer in stock.
We recommend care when using this option, as in some countries you are legally required to supply a product for the price quoted, once it has been ordered.
So even if you can no longer get the product, or if your supplier has increased prices, you may still be legally required to fulfill the order.
