I need some help please.
When products are in stock, in list view, the customer can see "Availability: In Stock" or alternatively the actual quantity of stock.
For items where there is no stock on hand, we are able to set the product availability in Out of stock actions to read: Sign up for notification.
At this point, the "Availability: In Stock" vanishes from customer view. If I change settings to allow negative stock, it returns to "In Stock".
I do not wish to allow negative stock. My products are either in the warehouse, therefore "In Stock", or in a suppliers warehouse, which means they are available to order but not "In Stock". I would like to set products that are not in stock, but in another warehouse, to "sign up for notification" and have a message in the list view which says words to the effect "Available to order".
How do I get this message to appear in list view where the "In Stock" would normally appear? In this way I would then have three potential messages for stock availability in list view;
1. In stock
2. Available to order
3. "blank" - (when there is no stock to order from either warehouse)
