    Setting product stock level

    Hi,

    I want to set my stock level always to 1 but when I enter 1 in the product stock level and save and publish it just removes the number i enter. I assume that this means the level is dynamic.

    How do i set it so that the stock level is always set to one and once the product has been purchased it is removed from the website?

    Also is there anyway of only allowing the user to add a product into the basket once? So the same item cannot be added twice doubling the cost? I have done this with cookies but would prefer a server side solution.

    Thanks, Lewis

    The reason for the stock level not being set - could that be that you have not configured the stock correctly if using variants? It should be able to save the value 1 or any other number.

    Sounds like you want to do pessimistic stock control. That is where a product is taken from stock when a customer adds it to the cart. You will need to program this your self. What you need to do is to count the stock down in the moment the product is added to cart.

    But you also need to have a mechanic to put back on stock if a cart is abandoned. So you need to write a scheduled service that makes this happen.

    Kind regards

    Hi anders,

    Thanks! I will give this a go. I dont have any variants though so not sure why this is happening. I'm going to try to get the starterkit installed again but still cant get this to work with 7.6+.

    Thanks, Lewis

    This runs Umbraco 7.6.2 and works? Just downloaded and pressed F5 in Visual Studio and it runs.

    Kind regards
