Sorry if this has already been asked in a different manner. Searched for this question in keywords but did not find.

Is there a way to display the current inventory available for an item on the front end of the website to customers? We have some closeout products that we want customers to see how many are left before the item is discontinued. We will also want to use this functionality for when we create pre-order products.

Out of the box, no, though it's certainly possible for a developer to implement this with minimal effort.

If a product has inventory tracking enabled, no inventory available, and the out-of-stock mode set to "Show as Out of Stock (Allow Orders)" the product page will display a message to the customer. Note, however, that no distinction is made between preordering and backordering. You can change the message that's displayed by editing the "OutOfStockAllowPurchase" Site Term (Options >> Site Settings >> Site Terms).

Ok thank you. I know many supplier/warehouse websites and apparel websites will display inventory available. Hoping this functionality is considered as a standard feature for future updates.

Was displaying available inventory to customers on the front end ever made into a standard feature/function?
