I am running 4.0.x and it seems no matter what I do any product shows In Stock in the front end. I have enabled Inventory Tracking and Allow negative amount in inventory in General Settings. I also have Low stock notification threshold set to 1 and Show out of stock items enabled. For my product I have In stock set to 0, Track without options, minimum order to 0 and Out of stock actions set to Sign up.
If I have Show out of stock items not check then the product doesn’t show which works as it is supposed to.
But if I use the settings above it seems that no matter what I do the product shows as Availability: In Stock and I can make the purchase. I want it to show out of stock and customers to be able to select Sign up to receive and email that the item is in stock.
What do I have wrong?
Uncheck “Allow negative amount in inventory”
I had tried that originally and it didn't work. But now it seems to be working fine. I must have had something else not set correctly and then retracing my steps and using your advise fixed it. Thanks for the help.
