Step 2: Configure Inventory Options

There are several available options when it comes to the configuration of your Inventory and bellow we will provide more information on each one of those:

Manage Stock – This will enable the global Stock management feature so you can manage the entire stock of your Store. Keep in mind that the feature will be enabled by default
Hold Stock (minutes) – The amount of time in which the pending orders will be preserved
Notifications – Here you can enable notifications which will be fired when certain stock is close to 0
Notification Recipient – The email address of the person who should be notified about the ending stock of certain product. This is pretty useful if you have a distributor and if you would like to automate the process
Low Stock Threshold – The amount of stock when the notification for low stock will be triggered
