Managing Stock

Each product in your catalog has both a short and long version of the Inventory options,
depending on whether you need to manage inventory for the product. To take full advantage of
Magento’s advanced inventory management capabilities, Manage Stock must be enabled. .

full inventory management, complete the long form. The initial values reflect the default
Product Stock Options set in the configuration.

1. On the Admin menu, select Catalog > Manage Products. Then, open the product in edit mode.
2. In the panel on the left, under Catalog, select Inventory. Click to expand the Product Stock
Options section.
3. To change the default setting of any field, first clear the Use Config Settings checkbox. Then,
do the following:
a. Set Manage Stock to “No.”

product that a customer can place into the shopping cart.
c. In the Maximum Qty Allowed in Shopping Cart field, enter the maximum quantity of the
product that a customer can place into the shopping cart.
