Labeling a Product Out of Stock in Magento 1.6

At any time, you can mark a product out of stock even if you have quanitities of the product. One instance where you may use this technique is if you have a brick and mortar location. If your inventory is shared amongst the online and physical locations, you may want to mark a product out of stock when the inventory is low and to maintain inventory for the brick and mortar store. Changing the settings on a product to label is out of stock can be done through the Magento 1.6 Admin Panel.

  1. Log into your Magento Admin Panel
  2. Go to Catalog -> Manage Products
  3. Select the product you wish to mark as “Out of Stock
  4. mage_gift_product_1

  5. Click “Inventory” in the left menu pane
  6. At the bottom of the page, find the “Stock Availability” and from the dropdown select “Out of Stock
  7. mage_out_of_stock_1

  8. Click “Save
