HIgh volume sale

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

I recently held a sale that had a large number of people vying for a product all at once.  Many people had the item in their cart, but when they went to checkout, it was sold out.   Is there a way to have items temporarily removed from inventory while the checkout is in process?

No. Products are not reserved when a customer reaches the checkout page. A product's stock level will only reduce when a customer completes the final step within the checkout, and payment is attempted. If you have one of a product left in stock and two customers added it to their carts at the same time, the product will be sold to whoever completes checkout first. This cannot be changed.
