What is Track Inventory?

Track inventory option enables the store's owner to monitor the stock level of the products. With this option the store's owner can plan purchases intelligently and quickly understand the fast-moving items which needs to be reordered as well they can take extra care towards (promotion) slow-moving items.

Note: If checked, then the stock will automatically reduce when a order is placed and is in PROCESSING. Also, the stock will increase if an order is CANCELLED, REJECTED or RETURNED.

Where I can enable the Track Inventory feature?

By default this option is marked as checked when you create a store otherwise you can enable the feature by following

Go to store manager > PRODUCTS > Click on any product SKU, at the end of the page there will be an option "Auto Reduce Stock Level", please checked that option
