We replenish from a distributor based on whats orded. So while we have a lot of inventory we don’t stock everything. I’m sure this is common.
The problem we have is that even though the configure settings are set to ignore qty or allow < 0 or not decrement when possible - there are still problems.
First, if we set all on hand stock qty to 1, a customer cannot checkout with more then 1 in their cart. When we set all quantity on hand to 9999 they can.
Second, and this is more of an interface issue, it’s a real pain/stupid to have to set every product we add to IN STOCK, there should be a way to default them all to instock. It just adds yet one more step to adding products which we do a dozen every week.
