Product page: Show a low stock notice

The Venue theme (from  V4.5.0 / 19 November 2019 ) has the ability to display a low stock warning message on your product page. The following article will teach you how to set up and control this feature.

A. Turn on inventory tracking for your products

1
Log in your Shopify store admin
2
Click on Products in the side menu on the left of your screen. Then click into the product(s) you wish to edit.
3
If your product does not have any variants you can scroll down to the Inventory section, Check the Track quantity checkbox and change the Quantity selector to the number of items you have available in stock.

4
If you product has variants you will need to edit each variant and repeat the step above.

5
Save your work

Pro tip: You don't have to turn on inventory tracking for all of your products and variants for the low stock notice to work. You can be selective with which products display a low stock notice.

B. Turn on the low stock notice in the theme editor

1
Log in your Shopify store admin
2
Click on Online Store then Themes in the side menu to get to the themes area of your admin.
3
Click the Customize button next to your active theme to go to the theme editor.
4
Use the dropdown at the top of the editor to select a product page. If it's easier you can just use your store's navigation to get to any product page.

5
Once a product page is open look for the Product page section in the left hand side menu. Click into to it to begin editing the settings.
6
Scroll down until you see the checkbox named Show low stock notice. Check that box to activate the feature. Next you have to decide when the low stock notice is triggered. For example, if you only want the low stock notice to be displayed when your inventory is equal to or falls below 6 items, set the slider to 6.

7
Remember to save and then check your work on your live store.

Change the wording of your low stock notice

If you wish to change the wording of your low stock notice to something like 'Hurry, only 3 left!' you can do this by editing the language of the theme.

Please refer to the article linked at the bottom of this page.

For reference, once you are in the language editor search/filter for the term  Qty notice then edit the Qty notice html field as shown in the image below.

to achieve our 'Hurry, only 3 left!' example you would change the text to 

	Hurry, only <span>{{ count }}</span> left!
