We are looking for an app that helps us from overselling products. We are having two issues currently with overselling, the first being on drop days, certain items will sell very fast and if two people checkout at the exact same time, shopify is letting the product oversell even when it is supposed to stop when it hits 0. Our other issue is just human error, shopify may show we had a product for sale when it was not physically on the shelf for various reasons. We are looking for a “buffer” solution to let us choose a inventory quantity to stop selling at. For example once a product has only 2 left, we would want our website to say 0 until we reactivated those leftover quantities after checking inventory.
Take a look at the Shopify Flow app (developed by Shopify). It may allow you to set a product to out of stock if the inventory level meets a certain threshold. If not Zapier may allow you to configure something similar. If not then someone may be able to develop a private app that does the same thing.

I hope this helps.
