Availability

The Availability tab is where you control behaviour related to stock levels.

The default behaviour for a product on the website is to be available for purchase with no minimum purchase, no maximum purchase and the ability to purchase any quantity. By changing settings it is possible to completely alter this behaviour.

Availability

There are four availability settings:

Show Price and Buy Button

This is the default behaviour where the product is for sale. Both the price and buy button will appear on the website

Hide Price - Request For Quote

When a product is set to request for quote it is a quotable product which means that when it is added to the cart, instead of proceed to checkout the cart will have request quote button. This applies even if the other products in the cart our regular purchasable products. The quote request checkout is similar to a regular check out, except no payment will be requested and the quote request will show up in the orders screen as a request for quote.

Hide Buy Button

This will display the price but not allow the customer to buy, this option is ideal for catalogue sites or products that are coming soon.

Hide Price and Buy Button

This option will hide both the price and the buy button.

Replace Price and Buy Button With

When any of the three hide options are selected, and editor appears, where you can enter content that will replace what is hidden.

Stock Control

  • Stock Control - checking the button will enable stock control.
  • Stock Level - allows you to enter in the quantity of the item available.
  • Out Of Stock - allows you choose an action that happens when a product has diminished to 0 stock level.

Disable Product

The product is disabled, no longer available for sale, and will be removed from the website the next time it is published.

TIP: If you want to show message when the price and/or buy button is hidden ss a result of running out of stock, temporarily set availability to one of the hide options, enter the message, and set availability back to "Show Price and Buy Button".

For products published to eBay, if stock control is enabled, and the height runs out of stock, the listing will be ended. When the product is back in stock, set the stock level to the appropriate quantity, ezimerchant will automatically republish the item to eBay, retaining all the original sales history ensuring that any listing placement benefits built up over time are not lost.

Buying Quantities per Order

Use this option to set minimum, maximum, and lot buy quantities.

  • Must buy at least - restricts the minimum quantity to buy.
  • Can only buy multiples of - If you have a product that can only be bought in lots of six, set "Can only buy multiples of" to 6.
  • Can only buy up to - restricts the maximum quantity that can be purchased. For example, you may have a product that you want to limit to one per order. Set "Can only buy up to" to 1.
