Prevent an Out of Stock Product from being Added to the Cart



Product Options premium can prevent a product that is linked to an option selection from being added to the cart, if the linked product doesn't have any stock in it.

When this functionality is turned on and the product is out of stock, a message will display on the screen informing the user that the option product is out of stock. The user will be prevented from adding anything to the cart.
