Calling all Cart Geniuses - How would you handle this problem

I will be renting products and need to track them going in and out. Also, I may have more than one of an item.

In your opinion, what would be the best way to do this?

Thanks in advance

Probably easiest way is to mark items as returnable in inventory and when the item is shipped, you auto-create a RMA request. Then when the item is returned, you close out/delete the RMA request.

You can go into the languages settings and alter settings so it doesn’t say RMA… things like “Rentals Out.”

As far as maintaining an accurate count of what’s avail, that’s done via the normal stock count on the product details page. As far as seeing “what’s currently out,” you can have someone write you a custom script to cycle through the entries in the RMA table and give you a report per product_code.
