Appropriate stock statuses with high efficiency and little effort

Communicate with customers through stock statuses

You have a great possibility to earn more by clearly communicating product statuses (like 'Available tomorrow') with the Amasty Custom Stock Status extension. With this tool you can show stock quantity, display out-of-stock-products, other product statuses that will definitely enhance shopping experience in your Magento store. You can also manage statuses for negative stock.

magento custom stock status

Ability to automatically indicate date in custom stock statuses

Use {tomorrow}, {day-after-tomorrow} and {yesterday} variables in custom stock statuses to display the date when the products will be available.

Assign stock statuses to products either automatically or manually

You run a large store with constantly changing stock? I guess it would be a nightmare to indicate Magento product status individually for each product. And we've developed this Magento stock indicator tool to help you bring your Magento inventory control to a new level and automatically show stock quantity with the dynamic quantity range based statuses, like 'Low' for 1-10 items, 'Medium' for 11-99 products and so on. You can specify quantity ranges and a stock status for each range. If you would like to set status manually for any of the products - such option is also available.

Create unlimited number of custom stock statuses

You can have a separate Magento custom stock status for each inventory situation like "coming soon", "shipped in 3 days" etc.

Show stock status in a shopping cart

Display a products' stock status and quantity in the shopping cart to motivate customers to complete the order and increase sales.

Properly inform customers about stock situation

If customers see just ‘out of stock’, they get no idea of when the product will become available again and leave your store. If you show something like ‘Arrives on March 20’, customers will know that a product will become in stock soon and will get back to you. It is especially important for configurable products, as the Magento stock indicator module enables you to show all available combinations, unlike standard Magento product status functionality. This way customers will check back with your site and you will get more orders.

Flexible quantity-based statuses for different product groups

This feature is quite complex and hopefully we've explained it clearly :). It enables you to show the same Magento product status, e.g. 'Running out soon', for different stock levels, depending on which group the product belongs to. Let's say Product A sells fast and you need to show status 'Running out soon' for it when it reaches quantity of 100 or less. Product B sells a lot slower and status 'Running out soon' suits it only when it reaches the quantity of 10 or less. So now you can use the same status for different quantity levels depending on a product. This useful option will definitely help you to significantly improve your Magento stock control.

Edit custom stock statuses for many products at once

The extension is fully compatible with Magento 'Update Attributes' feature, so you can set the same status for as many products as you need in just a few clicks.

magento stock status management

Use custom stock statuses for any product type

You can show Magento stock levels for simple, configurable, grouped, virtual, downloadable and bundled products. With configurable product the statuses can be displayed not only for the main products, but also for each option in the dropdown - please see dropdowns of this product. With bundled and grouped products the status can be shown both for the main products and the associated ones - here's an example.

Flexible and nice-looking stock statuses for your Magento store

Make 'Out of stock' combinations of configurable products visible to customers

Customers will know that usually you offer more options than currently in stock. With the help of custom status you will be able to inform them of when the options will become available. 'Add to cart' button is not displayed for 'out of stock' options of configurable products (negative stock), if backorders are not allowed.

Ability to indicate product quantity in custom stock statuses

Use {qty} variable within stock status text to display product quantity in the status. For example 'Hurry up! Only {qty} left in stock!'.

magento stock status management

Replace stock status of the main configurable product with the status of the selected simple product

Manage stock by replacing the statuses of configurable products  with the statuses of selected simple products on the product page, once customers make their selections. This way customers see the statuses of the very products they are buying. Also status of the selected simple product is displayed in shopping cart.

Use nice-looking icons to show custom stock statuses

You are free to either combine icons with texts or to use only one of them. Images will help you to liven up the text; pictures catch people's attention a lot better and often don't need to be translated.

Have a lot of options for display of custom stock statuses:

  • Show custom statuses either together with the standard Magento ones, e.g. 'Out of Stock. Coming soon', or replace them - just show 'Coming soon'
  • Show custom stock statuses on category, search results and product view pages

Use HTML tags for your statuses

With the extension you can easily use HTML tags for your custom stock statuses texts.

Make stock statuses extremely useful for customers

Get full support of backorders

The extension fully supports and does not conflict with native Magento inventory control functionality. Also you can set special statuses for items being ordered in advance (e.g. 'Ships in 2 weeks', etc), this way your customers will be better informed and will have a lot more confidence for placing orders.

Use 'Text field' and 'Date' attributes in custom stock statuses

You can add attribute codes to statuses to create messages like 'Back in stock on {eta}'. On front end the code will be replaced with the attribute value specified for this product.

'Mouse over' text for stock status icons

You can specify the text, which will be displayed, when customers hover mouse over a status icon.

Stock alert subscription for options of configurable products

Customers can sign up to get notified when 'out of stock' options of configurable products become available again.

Automatic selection of attributes if only one option is available

The extension will automatically select value for the attributes which have only one option available. For example, there is a cap which has three colors to choose from. When a customer chooses a color with only one size available, the extension will automatically select the size.

Try advanced tools to make your store even more user-friendly

Build customer loyalty effectively

Benefit from one more useful module, called Out of Stock Notification. It allows your customers not only to get notified about all out of stock and price changes, but to manage their subscriptions. The extension lets you monitor to which products your customers subscribe to and add the items to your store accordingly. Thus, this easy-to-use tool effectively helps to track customers’ preferences and offer them only the products they really want to buy.

Help customers make their choice

To enhance your users’ experience and help them to get informed about all your shop news use Custom Stock Status together with Product Labels extension. This module clearly demonstrates which items are on sale or running out of stock placing catchy labels beside corresponding products.

Expand customers’ possibilities

Increase the number of regular purchases in your e-store with the Magento Favorite Products extension which gives customers unlimited opportunities to create multiple lists of favorite products and configure them.

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.

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!

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!

Amasty support system
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!
