Setting 'Out of Stock' to Active Listings

Setting an active eBay listing to out of stock will remove the Buy it Now button, hide it from searches (but retain your search ranking), and keep the sales history for up to 3 months. If you fail to restock within this time, the listing will be removed by eBay.

The steps below will take you through the process of setting listings to Out Of Stock even when there is stock in Neto.

Configuring Out Of Stock for your listings

You will first need to ensure that your Out of Stock control is enabled.

  1. From the Neto Dashboard navigate to eBay > Setup & Tools.

  2. Select Store Manager.

  3. Check that Out Of Stock Control says Yes. If not click your account name and toggle the setting.

Any listings that sell out will automatically show as Out Of Stock when viewed with the direct link. To make a listing with stock show as Out Of Stock:

  1. From the Neto Dashboard navigate to eBay > Listing Rule Templates.

  2. Clone an active template that is configured for the product type (standard/variations) with the button on the right hand side.

  3. Change the Template Name so that you can easily identify that it is for out of stock listings.

  4. Select the Categorisation & Listing Rules tab and scroll to the bottom of the page. Set the Maximum Quantity to List to 0, then Save Template.

When this template is used Neto will only ever list a quantity of 0, so each listing will show up as out of stock. To set existing listings so that they use this template, please follow the steps to assign templates to active listings.
