Reserve Stock for WooCommerce

Reserve inventory for a limited time, for customers with items in their carts, with the Reserve Stock for WooCommerce extension.

Reserve Stock for a Limited Time

The Reserve Stock extension for WooCommerce enables you to temporarily reduce stock when a product is added to the Cart. Using rule-based management, you can enable reserving stock for selected products, categories, and user roles. You can also set a limit for the time an item is reserved.

Once a reserve time is complete, the product will be automatically removed from the Cart. The reserved stock will be released. You can communicate stock statuses to customers with customizable messages about the current reserved stock count, reserve time, and more.

It’s a must-have extension for merchants selling rare products and those who want to avoid orders above their current stock quantity. By showing a stock reserve count and timer, you can create urgency, so customers purchase quickly.
