Multi - Inventory Dilemma

Hello Guys,

Maybe someone have already faced this situation previously and would be able to advise me as-well.

I use m2epro extension to synchronize Magento Products with another marketplaces i.e. Amazon and eBay. I have 1 website 1 store and 7 store views.

M1 by default set QTY and Stock Availability as Global, so if I change a store view from Amazon FR to Amazon DE and set “Stock Availability” to “Out of Stock” it will be “Out of Stock” in all store views. I need an extension, where I would be able to change in between the store views and change the QTY, Stock Availability and etc as I need.

Here is an example below:

I have a product “iPhone” that will be back in stock in 10 days i.e. 21/12/2017. If I set “QTY” to “0” and “Stock Availability” to “Out of Stock” in Magento back end, m2epro will pick it up and send the information across other marketplaces.

1.) Amazon allows restock date, however, in Magento I must set up “QTY” to more than 1 and “Stock Availability” – “In Stock”.

2.) eBay doesn’t allow restock date and so “QTY” set to 0 and “Stock Availability” must be “Out of Stock”. I could delete those listing from eBay, but this is not an option for me. I could set despatch date to 10 days, but when you have 200 items that will be back in stock on different dates, this is just too much of a headache.

3.) Website, I can set to “Allow QTY below 0”.

So the settings needs must be as follows:-

Store views:
1.) Amazon UK, DE, FR, IT
QTY – 3
Restock Date – 21/12/2017.
Stock Availability – In Stock

2.) eBay UK
QTY – 0
Stock Availability – Out of Stock

3.) Website:
QTY – 0
Stock Availability – Out of Stock
Backorders – Allow QTY below 0

I was thinking to set up another Magento “Website” and “Store”, but I am not quite sure if that would help me in that situation.

Thank you,

Kind Regards,


Dave Furness
