Product Settings

A few new settings had been added to the product edit page. First, we have the “Order & Inventory Manager”-tab. If it is a simple product then this is where all the settings are made. If it is a variable product then this is where all default values are set for each variant.

  • Enable warning for low stock: Check this if you want the product to show up on the page with products that have low stock.
  • Low stock threshold: Enter the qty when you consider this product to have low stock.
  • Physical Stock Status: A lot of calculations in OIMWC are made based on this number. It represents how what qty your physical stock has right now. This is the number you want to compare with when taking inventory. If this value falls below 0 a warning message will be displayed inside OIMWC.
  • Product Notes to Supplier: If this product has a special property the supplier product id does not cover then enter it here. It can be something like: “Include custom manual”.
  • Units in stock: This keeps track of how many units you have in stock. Let’s say you sell a 10 pack of something and have 16 units in stock then you will have a stock qty of 1 + 6 units.
  • Shop pack size: Enter your shop pack size.
  • Product unit: Enter the unit this is sold by. E.g. piece, meter, kit
  • Display pack size on the product page: You can choose if you like to show the pack size on the product page for this product. The preset value will be whatever you set in the main settings page.
