Keep your customers in the loop with stock levels by setting up Empire's stock indicator feature. Track inventory through your Products admin, then activate the theme feature to share stock levels on the storefront.
Track inventory for products
The stock indicator works directly with the platform's inventory-tracking system, so activate inventory tracking in the Products admin.
Getting started with inventory tracking
Activate theme setting
In the theme editor, open Theme settings, then Products.
Below Inventory, activate the Enable inventory status setting.
Display inventory status
Select an option for the Display inventor quantity setting to adjust how often the stock levels appear.
There are four options to select from. By default, Hide exact quantity is enabled. Select Exact inventory quality, Low stock and in stock threshold, or Low stock only to reveal more information about stock levels.
Exact inventory quality
To show the total inventory for each product, select Exact inventory quantity.
- All products will show inventory status
- All products will show precise stock levels
Low stock and in stock threshold
To show the total inventory for products with low stock and within the selected Low stock threshold, select Low stock and in stock threshold.
- All products within the set threshold will show status
- All products show precise stock levels
Low stock only
To show the total inventory for products with Low stock only, select that option.
Hide exact quantity (default)
Conceal the stock levels for products by selecting Hide exact quantity.
Set the threshold for stock indicator
Use the Low stock threshold to control the quantity maximum for stock level display. For example, to have all products with fewer than 40 units display the stock information, adjust the range finder to 40.
