4. Configuration

Magento Configuration

The inventory management extension does not change the way magento handles inventory, but here are a few points / thoughts :

  • You can still use options available in store > configuration > catalog > inventory, they are all compatible with our extension
  • You can not have negative quantities anymore in Magento, as it now contains the quantity sellable, so in the worst case (for products not in stock allowing back orders), the magento quantity will be 0

Inventory management configuration

Inventory Management settings are available from menu Stores > Configuration > Boostmyshop > Inventory Management.
