Custom Stock Status for Magento 2

The extension allows you to inform your shoppers about the current stock statuses of your products. You can use variables and quantity ranges to provide clear and catchy statuses to engage your customers.

  • Apply various custom stock statuses
  • Add statuses to simple products or categories
  • Display out of stock notifications of configurable items
  • Upload catchy icons for stock statuses
  • Show stock statuses based on quantity

General Settings

To configure the extension, go to Stores → Configuration → Amasty Extensions → Custom Stock Status.


Display Custom Stock Status for `Out of Stock` Items Only - set to Yes to display custom stock statuses only for out of stock products. If set to No, custom stock status will be visible both for `in stock` and `out of stock` items.

Display Default Stock Status with Custom Status - select Yes to display default stock status (in stock\out of stock) next to a custom stock status, set to No to display only custom stock status.

Use Quantity Ranges Based Statuses Only - choose Yes if you would like to use only automatic, range based statuses.

Activate Product Groups for Quantity Range Statuses - enable this option to specify quantity range for particular groups of products.

Use Out of Stock Threshold Value for Quantity Ranges - set to Yes to apply Out of Stock Threshold Value to the quality ranged statuses.

Out of stock threshold value indicates the quantity according to which a product is considered to be out of stock. If you use a variable qty_threshold to highlight the precise quantity of the product in your stock status, this number is calculated this way: the product quantity minus stock threshold (the quantity which triggers the out-of-stock status).

To specify out of stock threshold value, please go to Admin Panel → Catalog → Products and choose the product. In the Advanced Inventory tab set the necessary threshold value.

Display Icon Only (No Status Text) - set this option to Yes to display only icons for stock statuses (without a text).

Display Settings

Expand this tab to choose whether to show custom stock statuses on:

  • Product list page;
  • Shopping cart;
  • Order Confirmation Email.

In this tab you can place a link in a custom stock status.

Show Info Link - enable the feature to display a link below the custom stock status.

Info Link Text - input an anchor text that will be shown to customers.

CMS Page - select the necessary CMS page to direct customers to. A drop-down contains all the CMS pages that you have in the web store.

Info link on the frontend:

Expected Date

The Expected Date section allows you to display the date on product pages when a product will be back in stock.

When the expected date functionality is enabled, the new corresponding attribute is created. Also, the attribute will be automatically added to products.

Use Expected Date — switch this option to 'Yes' to enable the expected date functionality.

Expected Date Format — choose the expected date format.

Hide Expired Expected Dates — enable this option to hide the expected dates when they expire.

For the correct display of the Expected Date on a product page please go to Stores → Product → Custom Stock Status → Manage Option → Add Option and fill the new option with the expected date variable.

Then set the Expected date on product settings and choose the new custom status option from the Custom Stock Status dropdown.

Configurable Products

With the extension, you can use custom statuses for simple options of configurable products.

Please note that these settings switched on may degrade the performance of your store since the module is checking out the status/quantity of simple products before reflecting the status of a configurable product. For the same reason, a page with a higher number of simple products is loading longer.

Show Out of Stock Configurable Attributes:

Set to 'No, Magento logic' to make disabled and out-of-stock products crossed-out and not selectable;

Set to 'Yes, Out of stock options selectable' to make out-of-stock options selectable (not crossed-out) and disabled products crossed-out and not selectable;

Set to 'Yes, Out of stock options selectable and crossed-out' to make out-of-stock options selectable and crossed-out while disabled products will stay not selectable and crossed out.

Change Configurable Product Status upon Options Selection - enable this option to change product statuses for configurable products.

See how the feature is displayed on the frontend:

Enable 'Back In Stock' Alert for Out of Stock Configurable Items - select Yes to notify users when the product comes back to stock.

To enable this feature, install Out of Stock Notification plugin.

Custom Stock Rules

Custom stock statuses are based on rules. To specify the quantity rules, go to Stores → Attributes → Product and select the attribute custom_stock_status_qty_rule.

In the Manage Options (values of your attribute) section of the Properties tab, create one rule for each product group, for which you will use different levels of stock. E.g. bags_rule, watch_rule and so on. Create an unlimited number of rules via Add Option button.

Once you create the rules, proceed to custom stock statuses creation.

Custom Stock Status

To create new or edit already existing custom stock statuses, go to Admin Panel → Stores → Attributes → Products.

Select custom_stock_status attribute.

Add an Option

Navigate to the Properties tab → Manage Options (Values of Your Attribute) section.

Here you can create the necessary options for the custom stock attributes. Easily sort them via drag and drop function or delete if necessary. Use Add Option button to create a new status.

You can use different variables to generate stock statuses automatically and provide your customers with the necessary message. Also HTML tags are allowed.

To display current product quantity in particular stock status, use {qty} variable, for example: Hurry up! Only {qty} left in stock!

Use {qty_threshold} variable to display the product quantity minus stock threshold (the number which triggers the out-of-stock status of a product).

You may specify days such as {tomorrow}, {day-after-tomorrow}, {yesterday} or prices, e.g. {special_price}.

If you want to display only an icon without a text for specific statuses, but don’t want to disable text messages for all of them, press Space button in the Default Store View field and leave it empty.

Upload an Icon

Go to the Manage Icons tab to upload noticeable images in order to draw customers’ attention.

In the Preview column you can see how the icon will be displayed on the frontend. Delete icons if needed just ticking them in the appropriate column.

Remember to save the attribute, otherwise icons won’t be uploaded.

Quantity Range Statuses

Expand this tab to assign the rules according to which the statuses will be displayed.

You can also use Stock Status Rule column to specify different quantity levels for the same statuses for different groups of products. E.g. you can show the same status Running out for Product A, when it has quantity from 1 to 5; and for Product B, when it has quantity from 1 to 100.

If you would like the statuses to be updated automatically, based on how many items of a product are left in the inventory, please create quantity ranges and assign the necessary statuses to the ranges.

If you choose to use range based stock statuses when editing a product, the stock status will change automatically once the product quantity changes.

Use backorder rules to automatically assign particular stock statuses to the products.

Please be careful applying quantity based setting to the configurable product. For this operation the extension is checking out the sum of simple products in stock, thus it may affect the performance of your store.

Statuses Application

For Particular Products

To add custom statuses to simple or configurable products, go to Admin Panel → Catalog → Products. Select a product.

Navigate to the General tab and select the appropriate status for the product using Custom Stock Status dropdown, where all custom statuses are displayed.

Save the configuration.

For a Group of Products or Categories

To add custom stock statuses for multiple products, go to Admin Panel → Catalog → Products. You may use Filters button to find all the products you need, e.g. if you want to apply a status for the Top category, choose Top value in the Attribute Set filter.

Tick all the products or the necessary ones you want to add the status to. Click the Update attributes option in the Actions dropdown menu.

In the Attributes tab specify the necessary Custom Stock Status.

Hit the Save button.
