For most of the e-commerce platforms stock does not reflect real availability of products, since stock is just the physical number of products in your warehouse which does not take reserved products into account. In contrast to stock, availability considers not just number of products in the warehouse, but current open orders as well.

In general, product availability defines if the product can or cannot be sold in the shop.

From this article you will get to know how product availability is checked and calculated, how products are reserved, what the availability collector does, how availability can be imported to the database as well as how availability per store works.
