How Do I Add a Product as Sold Out on My Website?

If you have a sold out or unavailable product you are looking to display on your website but do not want people to purchase, you're in the right place!

To do this in Commerce7 you have 2 options:

1. You can set the inventory on the product to have an Available For Sale quantity of '0' and set the inventory policy on the product to 'Don't Sell.'

The product will still display on the website but it will not have an 'Add to Cart' option for customers to purchase.

If you want the product to read 'Sold Out' on the website you can edit the name of the product or the SubTitle of the product to read 'Sold Out' or 'Unavailable until XX date."

To do this, go to Store > Products > click on the product you want to edit and add the text to the Title or SubTitle field.

Note: This option will show the product as 'sold out' on both the collection page and the product drill down page.

 

2. You can use the 'Retired Status' on the product setup. Click on Store > Products > click on the product you want to edit and check the box for 'Retired' under the Web Status section.

This option will also remove the 'Add the Cart' options so customers can't purchase.

Note: This option requires you to link directly to the product URL on your website. This  is because the 'Retired' status takes the product out of the collection page so the only way for customers to see it will be to link directly to the product URL.
