The e-commerce.


Out of stock item is displayed as "Availability: In stock"

Recommended Posts

I use OSCommerce 2.3.4

I face the following problems:

1. Out of stock item is displayed as "Availability: In stock"

2. The 'add to shopping cart' link appears next to out of stock item

I use the following configurations:

Title Value Action 
Check stock level true  
Subtract stock true  
Allow Checkout false  
Mark product out of stock Out of stock  
Stock Re-order level 1  

I tried re-order level = 1 too but it didn't work.

Even when stock = zero, then too the product is displayed as in stock, and add to basket button remains active. 

This add to basket button has no link to the out of stock functionality.

From memory...it is just some text on the shopping_cart page that changes dependent on the setting of the "mark product out of stock".


It's fairly useless as is, so the question is ... what next... ideas;

  1. create a module that turns off the buy buttons based on the stock level
  2. create a module that shows a stock message on the product page
  3. create a module that reacts to zero stock when the person is checking out

I'm sure you can think of more.

Your Easy Stock Message add-on?


Forgotten about that one!  Possibility.  Will be making a slightly different version for the 28d.
Thanks for reminding me!

Looking for a payment or shipping module? Maybe I've already done it.
