I'm setting up a store for an artist. She's selling unique products which have offcourse an inventory of only 1. She wants all the products to stay in the store (to show her work) but once sold with an indication of "sold". It's not very user friendly to need to view the details and only then know that a product is allready sold/sold out.

@elise I don't see @hammerofpompey's request added to the iThemes Exchange Public Roadmap by the way...

In order to show the current inventory, you will need to add the inventory call to you custom templates.

it_exchange( 'product', 'inventory' );

This will echo the number of products left in stock.

Thanks, hammerofpompey!  I will definitely add that as a feature request.

Thanks,

OK - as a dev idea going forward the ability to see (as on ebay) 27 sold 48 available (or whatever) can be very beneficial.....

Hi Aplus,

When a product is out of stock, Exchange will not allow the customer to purchase.  Instead of the Buy Now button, they'll see a message that the product is out of stock.

Let us know if you have any additional questions.

I have enabled Inventory Tracking for a product.

But how do I display the current inventory level to the customer before they purchase to prevent them buying a product that is out of stock?
