Limited availability labels

Enable limited availability labels to display product availability and flag items that are low in stock. This is a great option for merchandising products if you sell one-of-a-kind or limited-edition items. Limited availability label settings apply to all physical and service products in your store, and display on store pages and product details pages.


Limited availability labels are available in the Commerce Basic and Advanced Plans.

  1. In the Home menu, click Commerce, then click Product status.

  3. Switch on the Show Label toggle.

  5. Choose from pre-written labels that automatically pull in the stock level for each product, or click Custom Message to write your own.
  6. Click the Display when drop-down menu to set the stock threshold. The label displays when any product’s inventory drops below this threshold.
