You can manage your stock in your shop using the "Stock" page, in the "Catalog" menu. No set-up is required to activate stock management.


The stock management page consists of two tabs: "Stock" and "Movements".

By default, when you open the stock management page, the "Stock" tab is the opened tab. Inside this tab, you can have an overview of the stock of products in your catalog and manage their quantities. The "Movements" tab gives you an history of all the changes in quantities.

Stock tab

This tab contains a table presenting your products' stock, as well as search options and allows you to directly edit your products' quantities.

Stock overview

A table allows you to have an overview of your catalog stock at a glance.

Each line represents a product (either standard, virtual or bundle) or one of its combinations. The only difference is that combination attributes are displayed just below the product’s name.

The table contains the following columns:


Starting from version, PrestaShop introduces three different notions of stock, which are different from the ones used in Advanced Stock Management in the 1.6 versions.
  • Physical stock represents the quantity you actually have physically in your storage. You may add or remove physical stock, for instance when receiving a supply order or when doing an inventory adjustment.

  • Reserved stock represents the quantity of products that are currently in an open customer order that has not been shipped yet. In other terms these products are physically in your storage but are not available for sale anymore. You cannot change directly the reserved stock. The reserved stock only depends on customer orders.

  • Available stock is the quantity available for sale. Unlike with Advanced Stock Management in version 1.6, you cannot directly modify the available stock unless you change the physical stock as well. This is the quantity displayed in the "Product" page.

At any time, these 3 notions of stock are linked by the following equation:

Physical stock - Reserved stock = Available stock

Editing the physical stock will also affect the available stock, and vice-versa.


By default, products are sorted by decreasing product_id, meaning that the most recently created product will be on top. If there are more than 100 products and combinations, then the table is paginated.

Edition of quantities

Quantities can be modified directly in the "Stock" tab, with the input field located in the end-right column of the stock overview table.

Simple edition

To edit a single product's stock, simply enter the desired quantity change in the input field. What you’re typing in this input is a quantity delta, meaning it’s not the desired final stock value but the quantity you’re adding or removing. You can either type in the quantity to add or to remove (with a minus sign), or use the up and down arrows to adjust the quantity.

To validate the new stock, simply click on the blue "Check" button inside the input field, or use the "Apply new quantities" button at the top of the stock overview table.

While editing the quantity, you’ll see an overview of the resulting final stock:

This feature is here to help you see at the same time the starting point, the end point and the difference between those before validating. Remember that since physical and available stock are always linked by the equation showed earlier, you'll edit both at the same time.

Multiple edition

If you want to edit multiple quantities at the same time, you can also edit the quantities of several products and then validate it all with the “apply new quantity” button.

Search and filter options

At the top of the tab, you’ll find two features to quickly look for any product. The search bar is designed for use-cases where you know which product you’re looking for because you either have in mind its reference, name or supplier. While the advanced filters allow you to browse more options to fine-tune your search.

The search bar looks for:

Advanced filters

In the ‘Stock’ tab, advanced filters contain:

Movements tab

The table of stock movements provides you with a log of all the stock changes. Because it’s an history of previous stock movements, this table only has an informative role and therefore cannot be edited.

Movements overview


The structure looks similar to the stock table but here each line corresponds to a change in physical quantity for a product or combination. It contains the following columns:

By default, stock movements are sorted by descending date, so that the most recent stock movements are on the top.

Stock movement types

As of version, three movement types can be created when triggered by the following events:

In the last two cases, the movement type in the table becomes an hyperlink to the corresponding customer order, so you have more context about this type of movement and don’t have to cross-check time stamps between the stock movements and orders tables.

Search and filter options

Search bar

See above. The search has exactly the same behavior as in the "Stock" tab.

Advanced filters


In the ‘Movements’ tab, advanced filters contain:



This new stock management system is compatible with multi-store. For obvious reasons, if you have multiple shops inside a group where stocks are not shared, you cannot manage your stock in “all shops” or “group” context. If you try to do so, you might see the following error message:

Instead you have to select a shop in which you can work to edit its stock.

If you’re using a group of shops that share the same quantities, you’ll also have to select a unique shop context instead of a group but any change you make in a shop will also affect the other shops.
