For groups, you can have products that are "always in stock" by setting their Lead Time when Out of Stock to a value higher than zero. This value is the number of days to display before an order is fulfilled - eg. "In Stock - Ships in 7 Days".
The number of days you set should allow for the outlet to be able to get the product in from your warehouse, or their supplier, and fulfill the order.
To change the message displayed from "In Stock - Ships in 7 Days" to another template message, just contact the Help Desk. For example, change from "Ships in X Days" to "Allow X Days".
When you set a Lead Time when Out of Stock, the product will appear as always in stock. You can prevent too many being ordered by setting a Maximum Order Quantity which will allow only this quantity for any specific order.
If these products are bulky products and you only want them to be collected, you can also set the Collection Only checkbox for certain products.
For setting these products using the BULK IMPORT FOR EXISTING PRODUCTS, use the following fields in your CSV file:
- OPTIONAL: MaximumOrderQuantity
- OPTIONAL: CollectionOnly - Set to True or False
