Adding stock information to the product details

Once the feed contains the necessary stock information, you can enable the Show Product status option in the Hotspots tab of the Publication Reader menu.

                                                   Enable Product status:



Show unavailable products on the Publication page  EARLY ACCESS-1

  EARLY ACCESS: If you're interested in using this feature and you're on the Enterprise plan,
   please reach out to your success manager, who will activate this for you.


When a product is unavailable, this will be indicated on the page directly, saving the publication's reader an unnecessary click. A customizable 'out-of-stock' icon along with a supporting hover-text appear for products that are either:
  • Marked out-of-stock in the Product feed
  • Removed from the Product feed.

The icon and hover text will only update as long as all products found in the hotspot meet these conditions.


In the Hotspots tab of the Publication Reader menu, you can customize the alternative icon and hover text.
