To set this up:

2. You can either click the blue ‘New Product’ button or Edit on an existing product.
3. The fourth option on the left hand side in the Product modal is labelled ‘Inventory’. Select this.
4.You will see the screen below, toggle on ‘Track Inventory’ to start tracking. :

5. When you’re happy with these changes, click Save.

If you want to be able to keep selling products, even after you have run out of stock, just toggle the ‘Allow sales when out of stock’ on in the Product Modal. This means your user will not be able to see the ‘Out of Stock’ message shown earlier in the article.
