Inventory quantities can be tracked at the product level, at the product variation level or tracking can be turned off for each individual product. If inventory is set to track then inventory quantities will be decremented each time a product is purchased and successfully paid for.
Option 3: You can continue to accept orders for the product and its inventory will decrement into negative numbers allowing you to track over-sells. This feature is great for those products that you receive constant shipments of that you know you will have back on the shelf in a very short time.
There are messages on the shopping cart and on the product detail page to inform the customer if the product is in stock or out of stock. If a product variation is out of stock then the inventory status will be “Out of stock”. Or, if a product goes out of stock while a customer is shopping, appropriate messages will appear on their shopping cart or the checkout preview.
