Inventory of products

The inventory of a product represents its available quantity in the store. You can configure the Ecommerce module to track the available quantity and to perform an action after a product has been sold out. For more information, see Inventory.

You can manage the inventory through the following properties of the Product class:

  • Inventory
    Gets or sets the available quantity for a product.
  • TrackInventory
    Specifies whether the Ecommerce module tracks the inventory and perform an action after a product has been sold out. When tracking the inventory of a product, the For developers: IEcommerceProductInventoryChanged event is fired every time when the quantity of the product changes. The enumeration has the following values:
    • DonotTrack
      Specifies not to track the inventory for the product.
    • Track
      Specifies to track the inventory of the product.
    • TrackByVariations
