Hide out of stock product variants
This add-on allows you to hide option combinations that are out of stock. This is useful only when you use the "track with options" inventory property. Each time an option combination becomes out of stock it is automatically added to the exceptions, thus a customer won't see it in the storefront.
E.g. you have a t-shirts with options "Color: Red & White" & "Size: M & L" and surely you use the "track with options" inventory option. Once a customer places an order with last "Red" T-shirt in "L" size this combination will automatically be added to the exceptions.
Please note: this add-on deletes all the exceptions that have been added manually.
- automatic tracking of product combinations at stock;
- option to hide/warn about out of stock combination;
- no code changes required in default cs-cart installation.
