How to use Option-Based Stock Control with your Product Options

With Product Options also comes Option-Based Stock Control, with which you can assign each separate possible option for your product a separate stock level.

In this guide we will look at how to set up Option-Based Stock Control and assign stock levels to your different Product Options.

How to set up your Option-Based Stock Control

To turn on Option-Based Stock Control you will need to go to your "Product Options" tab in your "Edit Product" screen. There you can change the "Option-Based Stock Control" drop-down list to "Yes".

Once you have chosen this option you will need to go to your "Stock Settings" tab to assign your stock.

  1. To assign stock to your Product Option please follow these instructions:
  2. Select "Assign Stock" from your "Stock Settings" tab. The modal window below will then appear: 
  3. Choose the combination of options you wish to assign stock to from the drop-down lists. For example, if you had a collection of different coloured t-shirts and sizes you could choose the colour "Green" and the size “8”.
  4. Add your stock level to the "Stock" field.
  5. Select "Add".
  6. Your stock level will now appear on your page as below.

If you wish to add another option you can simply select "Assign Stock" and add another stock level.
