    1. Hey Steph, if you track inventory on your base products, you can set quantities on hand and once out of stock you can prevent further purchase. It does require you to know how many of each item you have to sell. https://help.deconetwork.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000388808-Configure-Inventory-Settings https://help.deconetwork.com/hc/en-us/articles/235676047-Product-SKU-GTIN-Inventory

      We don’t have a way to arbitrarily mark items as out of stock and prevent further selling although this blog post does present some options to prevent sales if you want to close down a store.
