Widget quantity available question

Post by riptag » Mon Jan 23, 2012 6:29 pm

So the scenario is this...

There is 92 of XYZ Widget available. I add the item to my shopping cart. I check out and pay for the widget but my widget hasn't been shipped yet. If I go back in to the catalog and look at the widget is it still going to show 92 XYZ Widgets available or 91?

It'll show 91 - stock values are provided by our backend "sparkle" which uses a virtual stock quantity generated from physical stock minus backorders and unfilled orders.
