Availability Estimates

Availability Estimates

If a product runs out of stock, you can provide an estimate to customers for when it becomes available again. If you’re using an accelerator like Minium or Speedwell, three availability estimates are automatically created. Otherwise, you can create your own.

Creating Availability Estimates

  1. Open the Global Menu (Global Menu), and navigate to CommerceAvailability Estimates.

  2. Click Add (Add Button).

    Click the Add button to create a new availability estimate.

  3. Enter a Title. This should state the estimated time before the product becomes available again (e.g., 3-5 days, 3-4 weeks, 2-3 months).

  4. Enter a Priority to determine the display order of the estimate.

  5. Click Save.

Once created, you can add it to a product with Display Availability enabled. Navigate to a product’s Configuration tab, select the desired Availability Estimate from the drop-down, and click Publish.

Select the desired availability estimate.

You can view the selected availability estimate whenever the product runs out of stock.

The selected estimate appears on the product page whenever the product runs out of stock
