    It would be good to be able to display current stock on hand on the website by item.

    If a customer can see that you have stock that gives them confidence - it also prompts them to order - particularly if stock is low and they will need more in the next month or so.

    A simple stock on hand quantity would be sufficient for our purposes - no backorder calculations. Stock levels are rarely perfectly accurate - an indication of if we have 10 in stock or 2000 would be fine.

    Its a simple addition of an existing field to a page - not a hard ask.

      To make it easier for the WIX programmers there is very little modification required to display current stock status.

      In its simplest form it would be an instock or not in stock flag - not particularly useful.

      Better just take the inventory quantity - give it a "display/not display" box to tick and then allow display where-ever you like. 

      "Current stock on hand" would be the best terminology to identify the number. Shorten to "stock on hand", or even "stock" if space is tight.

      Acknowledge lots of priorities - but this one is really simple.

    YES! This is a NECESSARY function of an online store. It is essential to be able to show customers items that may be sold out, as they may become available again in the future, or maybe the store owner just wants to showcase their items and their popularity by showing they have already sold out. Please make this option available as soon as possible for me and for all the other business owners on Wix that need this feature as well.

    Hello!

    I'd like to have the option to list an item with a zero quantity just to show that the item is on order. Right now i'm using a ribbon to let them know, but since i have to have 1 quantity they can still possibly order it and ignore the fact that it is on order. Which may lead to complaints.

    Realy need this feature to be added! As soon as an Item runs out of stock it automatically takes the product down from the Store Page. I then have to add an 'Out of Stock' size option, to enable to the product to stay online, which brings even more trouble as you do get some people who end up ordering Out of Stock products.

    Instead of taking the product away from the online store once its sold out. It'll be more better if you just add "Sold Out", it's more better to let customers know to be ready for a restock.

    Out of stock products to be displayed in the store

    Hi Wix Team,

    Just to clarify, if my products are out of stock, it would be removed from my store? Do I have an option to let the product remain on the store [with a sold out tag] but with a different option allowing customers to input their interest in buying? For e.g. like keying their email for me to notify them once the product is restocked?

    I would like them to see my entire collection in the store and not just the products that are left unsold.

    Thanks

      Hi sharonh2,

      You can add a 'Sold Out' ribbon, and uncheck the 'I want to manage inventory' option, and make sure that product visibility is set to 'online'. 

      However, keep in mind that this doesn't prevent your visitors from purchasing the item since they can still add it to your cart. 

      The other option is adding it as an image with a description on a separate/'sold out' page' and including your email address there, so that they can contact you. 

       

      These are all workarounds, since  there isn't a feature yet that addresses what yo're requesting.

      I added this request to our Wix Wishlist. 

       

      Thanks,

      Jo

    Yes -to what 'teststore' said - I need to be able still display out of stock products too - but with a note indicating Sold Out status.

  • teststore

    Replied by teststore September 4, 2013

    Please allow items that have sold out to still be displayed with a notice indicating the sold out status. I sell custom items and often my customers will have me make a similar item to one that has sold out.
