Highly informative stock statuses

Want to enrich your standard Magento functionality with a handy tool that provides customers with much more informative stock statuses? Due to the Magento Custom Stock Status extension you will be able to easily create various stock statuses and assign them to any product types either manually or automatically. Apart from that, with the module it's possible to show custom statuses not only on product pages, but in the cart as well. Create statuses based on products quantity, time of delivery or any other important information. Easily manage product statuses for Magento negative stock. Use catchy icons to attract customers' attention and sell more.

Custom stock status magento extension

Use time and quantity variables

Use special variables to let customers know when particular products get back to stock. The module supports the following date variables:

  • {tomorrow}
  • {day-after-tomorrow}
  • {yesterday}


Use {qty} variable for stock status to show product quantity. For example 'Only {qty} left in stock!'

Add stock statuses to products automatically or manually

With the Magento stock indicator tool you can manage your Magento inventory much more effectively by automatically displaying quantity based statuses with the dynamic quantity range based statuses. Use 'Low' status for 1-50 items, 'Medium' for 51-151 products etc. Set quantity ranges and stock statuses for each range. It's also possible to specify quantity stock statuses manually if necessary.

Quantity-based statuses for different product groups

Display the same Magento product status for different stock levels. For example, product A sells very fast and it's appropriate to show 'Hurry up! Running out soon!' status when the product's quantity reaches 500. At the same time product B sells much slower and it will be reasonable to show the same status only when the product's quantity reaches 50. Therefore, you can use one and the same status for different quantity levels depending on product's popularity.

Display custom stock statuses in the shopping cart

To motivate shoppers complete the purchase show custom stock statuses not only on product, but on the shopping cart page as well.

Set statuses for multiple products in a few clicks

As soon the module is compatible with native Magento 'Update Attributes' option, you can specify the same status for numerous items at once.

magento stock status management

Display custom statuses for all product types

Show Magento stock levels for any product type you need. The module supports: simple, configurable, grouped, virtual, downloadable and bundled products.

It's also possible to display custom stock status for the main configurable product and a separate status for each simple option of this configurable product. The same logic is applied to grouped and bundle products with their associated items.

Show 'Out of stock' simple options of configurable products

With the feature-rich Magento stock status extension you can show custom stock status for out of stock simple options of configurable products. Thus, customers will be informed which simple items are out of stock at the moment.

magento stock status management

Custom stock statuses display

Upload icons for stock statuses

You can choose whether to display only icons, icons with texts or just texts. Easily upload any icon you need and assign it to the necessary products.

HTML tags support

Use HTML tags for custom stock statuses to customize text display according to your specific needs.

Advanced display options

The custom stock status Magento tool allows you to display statuses on different store pages and helps to draw customers' attention to the products you need:

  • Show custom stock statuses either together with the standard Magento ones or instead of them;
  • Show custom statuses on category, product and cart pages as well as in search results;

Enhance customer experience with custom stock statuses

magento stock status management

Display custom stock status for particular customer groups only

Make your work with customers more flexible and targeted. The extension allows you to display particular custom stock statuses to the customers, depending on their group. Highlight only relevant information to improve your customers' shopping experience.

Show stock status of the selected simple product instead of the main configurable item

Once a customer chooses any simple option of a configurable product that has it's own custom stock status, it will be displayed on a product page as the 'main status'. This way the customer will see the status of the very product he/she is buying. This status will be displayed in shopping cart as well.

Set 'mouse hover' text for stock icons

Specify any text you need that will be displayed when a customer hovers the mouse over a custom stock status icon.

'Text field' and 'Date' attributes for custom stock statuses

Add attribute codes to custom statuses in order to generate messages like 'Will be available on {eta}'. On the frontend the code will be replaced with the corresponding attribute value.

Current stock status is fixed at the moment of purchase

Custom stock status text that was relevant at the moment of purchase will stay fixed regardless the changes that may take place later. For instance, if there were 30 products in stock at the moment of order placement, the status will stay at 30 in the order even when the stock quantity is updated in time. Custom stock status texts are displayed in the order information for each purchased product both in the admin panel and in a customer account.

Automatic selection of attributes with one available option

The module automatically selects the value for the attributes which have only one option available. For example, there is a shirt with three colors to choose from. When a customer picks up the color with only one available size, the Magento stock extension will automatically choose this size.

Stock alert subscription for simple options of configurable items

Shoppers can subscribe to receiving notifications once 'out of stock' options of configurable products come back to stock.

Try more tools to boost customer satisfaction

Build customer loyalty effectively

'Squeeze' more from Magento stock functionality with the Out of Stock Notification extension. It enables customers to get notified about all out of stock and price changes and easily manage their subscriptions.

Attract customers' attention

To timely inform store visitors about all your shop news use Custom Stock Status together with Product Labels module. This tool clearly displays any info about hot deals or stock statuses by placing stunning labels for products.

Expand customers’ possibilities

Increase the number of purchases with the Magento Favorite Products extension which empowers customers to create multiple lists of favorite items and configure them in a few clicks.

Product questions

Can I have different stock status for the same SKU depending on a store or website?

Yes, you can set up different Magento product statuses for different stores/websites.

Can I import stock statuses for my products?

Yes, sure. A stock status is a product attribute, so you can import it if needed. You can create stock statuses coming from products quantity, delivery time, like a 'coming soon' product status, etc.

What product types are supported by this Custom Stock Status extension?

Our module supports all product types: simple, configurable, downloadable, bundle, virtual and grouped.

Can I display separate stock statuses for simple products which are part of configurable one?

Yes, each simple product within configurable one can have its own stock status, so you can apply any stock availability options for simple products. The same logic works with grouped and bundle products and their associated items.

Can I send “back in stock” alerts to customer who have subscribed to out-of-stock products?

Yes, it’s possible with our Custom Stock Status extension. Mind that “Back in stock” alerts can be sent only for simple options of configurable items.

Top-notch support when needed
The extension works great. Some products in our store were misconfigured and because of that quantities in stock status were not correct. I couldn't find the reason for that, so I ask for help on their support page. The answer with solution came from Alexey in 58 minutes and included screenshots with highlighted details where configuration needed to be fixed. I just had to come here to write a review.
We already bought 5 extensions from Amasty, we are extremely happy with all of them. When we need to extend some functionalities of Magento, Amasty is the first place where we stop.
Keep up the good work guys!
Works well if you donæt want anything advanced
Works great if you just want to use it for very common tasks. We wanted to use it for a products carousel, and that was extremely difficult. Could use some documentation for how to use it.
Great Module
Lovely bit of kit, worked straight out of the box and seems stronger than others I have tried. The only feature I feel it is missing is an "expected availability date".
Top quailty Service !
We had a compatibility issue with an extension from another developer and the people from Amasty helped us with this 'Custom Stock Status' extension.
Amasty has a great and promptly service !
I highly recommend Amasty !
Tip: avoid compatibility problems by not mixing extensions from to many different developers.
Excellent product and support!
This product works as described and is highly useful in setting expectations upfront before the customer makes a purchase. This was just what we were looking for and performs perfectly. We had a few things we needed help with and the customer support was fast and efficient and very helpful. I highly recommend the extension and the support!
Highly Recommended and Great Developer Support
Our team initially purchased Custom Stock Status and were having an issue with it integrating with our in-house developed configurable swatches (CE 1.9.01) Ivan and Amasty went over and beyond with offering daily support to get it to work. We ultimately abandoned our custom swatch code and went with Color Swatches Pro which offers many more features and configuration options than we had previously. Their team did all the heavy lifting of removing the conflicting code, installing the new extensions, and ensuring all our existing features integrated nicely.
Having the ability to show various ship dates based on product availability as well as product types to our customers has lead to a higher conversion rate in the few days we've had it installed.
Top notch, friendly support. I'm sure we'll be going back to purchase more in the future!

Magento Connect
I was modifying templates all over the place before I found this extension - super flexible and works out of the box (I'm using CE 1.9.2.x). Had a question about how to call stock status in other blocks, and they had it figured out for me in less than a day. I can't tell you how much time this is going to save me. Thank you!
Small problems solved support
works as described
The installation passed without any issues and the extension works as described. Great job, Amasty. Thanks!
helpful mod
Very nice tool that shows your product stock levels to customers. It also provides the info on when an out-of-stock product will be available again. This is actually the reason why we got this extension. Stocks run out from time to time, and we receive lots of emails and phone calls from customers who want to know when those products are coming. Processing such requests is very time consuming, and the module totally solves this problem.
Also we made minor customization of the module, just so that it looks better on our site. Tech support was very helpful. Thank you, guys!
Absolutely superb extension & support
Highly recommended, the extension itself was simple to install and worked right away.
I had a quick question which support responded to immediately.
Very impressed.
Good for stoack statuses in differnt languages; intuitive settings
Great extension for international stock statuses. I'm using it in my store with 3 different languages. There is an option for translating each stock status, so it's not a problem. The extension settings are intuitive and easily understood if you are familiar with Magento.
good sales booster
Creating feeling of urgency is a good sales booster. This module helped us to achieve sales increase by displaying the number of products left in stock. We created a number of rules (which wasn't very easy) that help customers view high demand and make decisions faster.
With a little customization we also display stock statuses in abandoned cart emails and see positive results. So thank you guys.
like the extension
like the extension but would like to see more beautifully-designed stock statuses included in the package.
Such a good extension
This ext is quite straightforward: it shows if the product is in stock or when exactly it will be available again. Customers used to ask our staff if the product is available, literally hundreds times a day. This module provided a great functionality to show this important information on the product page. And it looks nice on the frontend.
The module is very easy to use, we're fully satisfied with this ext.
Covers all our needs
The module does exactly what it is says and gives a great way to visualize stock status. It is excellent and very discreet way to let your customers know when the out-of-stock items are expected to arrive.
I also use this tool to warm up clients’ interest in new products. I assume that seeing some loud ‘coming soon’ notice makes a customer more eager to buy:)
High-quality product
This ext does exactly what it says, works flawlessly right out of the box and on the frontend looks very nice. What else to wish?) It’s my first tool from Amasty. I’ve heard a lot of positive feedback on their work, so I decided to see for myself. This team really does make high-quality products. First experience was absolutely positive, so now I picked a couple of modules to enlarge the default functionality of our order grid. Hopefully, they will be just as good as this one!
Good module and prof support
With the help of this module we ran a great promo and stimulated clients to buy last units. I’d say, this idea showed very good results.
Amasty support service is great, as always. We ran into some issues with third party extension. First we’ve tried to fix everything by ourselves, but it all got even more complicated. Techs gave us a hand and the store was running correctly in no time. Good job!
this module appeared to be a real catch for our store
We are running a large store with constantly changing stock. And of course two default stock statuses provided by Magneto - ‘in stock’ and ‘out of stock’ weren’t enough for us.
Finally, I’ve chosen this module by Amasty. I must admit the extension helped us a lot.
The thing that I like the most is the ability to automatically indicate product quantity in stock status. So I don’t need to check the quantity every day and change text in the status manually. At the same time customers are always aware how many products are left. So they make a decision faster. As a result a bigger profit for our store.
Perfect compliment to color swatches extension
Time and time again, Amasty has proven their superior customer support. After installing the color swatch extension, we noticed that our theme did not accomodate the change for "in stock" and "out of stock" notification.

Amasty knowing their product, recommended this extension to us and configured it for us so that we could remedy this problem and also launch new functionalities that we previously didn't consider, such as "preorder" products.

Will continue recommending and doing business with Amasty for years to come.
Matt K
Very good guys
we aren't Magento experts but this guys will help you in everything you have to do. Best support ever seen. Just remember to deactivate "Compilation" before installing (well explained in installation guide). See you soon!

Useful extension
We’re selling heaters, and this extension was a great choice for our store. In fact, we have only a few items available right now and we needed to show when the item will be available (the date, to be precise). This tool did what it say s and we had a lower number of support phone calls because the information is displayed on the website. Another great feature is that it works with bundle products.
I’ve bought several extensions from this company, and, to be honest, we’ve never managed to tune everything up ourselves and always needed the help of the support (user guides are not always helpful and don’t contain important peculiarities) but the other side of that is that Amasty support is really fast and helpful.
But update your user guides already!

Magento Connect
Just normal
Everything is alright with extension, but there was a conflict with other module. Amasty support team resolved the problem.
Super Extension and best support ever
I love Amasty! They make great extensions and have the best support.
yzfshop, Magento Connect
Nice Plugins & Good Support!
Amasty have great Plugins and a very fast Support!
Anonymous, Magento Connect
Great extension - needs 'add to Checkout' feature
This is a superb extension, from a superb & very helpful, responsive development team. It has proved very useful.
Just one of the great features is to be able to display the Custom Stock Status in the Cart - it shows under each item's Product Name.
By extension, it would be very useful if one could have an additional setting to be able to show it in the order
'Review' section of the Checkout page, but unfortunately this is not the case at the moment.
If you have an important status message that you want to show for an item in the Cart, then it is highly likely that you will also want want it to show on the Checkout page (perhaps it's even more important to flag it here before the final order button is pressed).
But we are talking about icing on the cake.
guido7, Magento Connect
Great extension and great support!
We were looking for a good extension for our magento shops to show the stock status. And this Extension works perfectly!

With this Extension it can! So definitely a recommendation!!

Also the support is great!

Thanx again for the great extension!
Amasty delivers on all fronts
This extension to me is one of those must haves as it gives the customer so much better and idea when parts are coming, how many are left and many more things. I was using another Backorder extension from another company that was causing a bit of a conflict but Alexey was very kind and worked through it all with me so I got everything the way I wanted! Top notch support! I fully recommend this extension!
Increased level of sales detected!
My sales increased thanks to the module. Great!

Great developer
I purchased the 'Custom Stock Status' plugin from Amasty 6 months ago and I want to leave a note here. The time I know Amasty and needed them they were very helpful and responded well within a few hours after my email. I have bought in my life a lot of scripts and extensions and by FAR this is the best support I have EVER received from such a company! They have time for you and do not hurry or promise things they cant do.They even helped me with things they don't need to. I can highly recommend Amasty to anyone who is searching for a extension they have. I am sure you will be satisfied and will give the same review in the future I give now. Thanks Amasty!
