How does Magento reserve stock when adding to cart?
I’m currently wondering how exactly Magento handles stock undordered products.
If I have a customer who adds a quantity of 10 items f my product to the cart, then I can see this stock being substracted from stock. The customer eventually never submits the order and the stock is ‘lost’ forever.
holds that true for magento or am I experiencing a bug or a misconfiguration?
