Configuring Advanced Inventory for each product

Configuring Advanced Inventory for each product

You can configure advanced inventory options for the products individually. This will allow you to manage or limit the inventory with options such as qty allowed in cart, or qty increments. You will find this in the backend when editing a product from Catalog > Products. Select the product you are wanting to manage if you want to edit an existing product, or you can manage this while creating a new product.
