Couple of parts to this question and I’ll explain our set up first.

– A section of our product offering isn’t kept in stock by us. We call these products special order items.
– Out inventory in ESP shows 0 and a channel profile keeps 5 pcs of each active on the marketplaces and websites.
– When we get an order, because the inventory has no stock, it shows as yellow/orange in ESP and it can’t be printed.
– A purchase order is raised in ESP and every couple of days we place an order with the supplier.
– When the stock arrives at our warehouse we add it via the Deliveries tab which allocates it to the order, turning it white and allowing it to be shipped.

First question: Can Magento/M2E list products which show 0 stock in the inventory? (For products we choose. We still need normal products to be pulled when stock gets to 0)

Second question: Is there any similar order handling when a product is out of stock? ie. Can we prevent printing these until stock has arrived and has been allocated?

Third question: Anything similar regarding PO handling in Magento/M2E?

Cheers Matt,

Possibly a stupid question, but I assume that if a product shows 0 stock in the inventory, we can still make it list any amount to sites/marketplaces by way of something similar to a channel profile?
