Stock control allows you to have your website keep track of stock levels to ensure that they do not sell when out of stock. This is an option that can be switched on or off at any time depending on if you want stock control running or not.
If switched on then you will be able to specify the amount of stock you have for all products and also at what point to show products as 'low stock' and 'out of stock'.
Customers will be able to add out of stock items to their 'favourites' and when the item is put back in stock, they will receive an email to alert them that the product is now back in stock.
You will also be automatically emailed as soon as a product goes out of stock so you know immediately if you need to order more stock in or discontinue the product.
You can also at any time export all of your stock out to an excel spreadsheet as a report on your current stock levels.
