This option is available on Advanced Settings (Step 4 of Update Product feed only. Process is not reversible once completed. You are advised to download the export product as a backup to restore.



This feature actually resets the quantity on the selected location to 0 for UNMATCHED products in the feed

There are two options for this:



1. Set out of stock to ZERO Quantity: When you enable the toggle, it will enable ALL unmatched variants. So, it will turn ALL unmatched variants from the feed file to zero quantity (out of stock). To ensure that not all the variants become zero, please apply Store Product filters. 

For example, 10,000 products in the store and 100 products in the feed file. So, when you enable this option it will change all the 9,900 products become zero quantity. We recommend applying Store Product filters instead of making all the store products that do not match with the feed file become zero quantity.

 


2. Set out of stock to Zero Quantity that was updated by Stock Sync before: When you enable the toggle, it will enable those products that had been updated by Stock Sync before. So, it will turn ALL unmatched variants that have been updated using Stock Sync before to zero quantity (out of stock).

For example, 5,000 products in your store have been updated by Stock Sync before. So, when you enable this option it will update those products that are UNMATCHED from 5000 products become zero quantity. 200 variants UNMATCHED from that 5000 products so 200 products will become zero only. 

Any product that is UNMATCHED against variants that are updated by Stock Sync before will become zero quantity. If you want to reduce the number of variants to be reset to zero, you need to apply Store Product filters so that there are NO CHANGESWhen there is a Store Product Filter apply Vendor equal to "Nike". It only finds the Nike product that has been updated by Stock Sync before from your store to become zero. 


Related to this above option, there is a feature Quantity zero alert. If you want to get notified of the updates that affected the store products that become zero quantity. You can use this feature to stop the update as you set the percentage. Click here to know more.
