Display products as out of stock when having multiple inventories

Hello,

 

I have different locations/ warehouses enabled in my Shopify store. Each warehouse is located in a different country and has a separate inventory. When we run out of stock at Warehouse A, people in Country A will see that product as out-of-stock. I don't want to sell to people in country A even if I have stock in another country - logistically, it's not possible.

 

How do I display the products as out of stock for people for whom I have no stock in their country warehouse? (in Country A, per my example)?

This is an accepted solution.

For whoever goes through the same issue, there's an app that can do all this, and more. and It's called Multi-Location Inventory.

 

It helped me with both this issue and the Order Routing complications.

I think you should be able to do this by setting a metafield on the product to indicate which markets it's in stock in, and then in the theme file you should be able to use a bit of liquid code to show it as out of stock for that market.

 

If you're open to a 3rd party app, I should be able to build this out for you using our app mesa.

Hi @Kalen_Jordan ,

 

The metafield will automatically update once Inventory A it's out of stock, or how is this going to be?

Yeah we could trigger on inventory level updated and then set the metafield based on the inventory levels by location.

Still looking for an answer. I'll most likely try the app mentioned in the meantime though.
