While we are all about promoting products that are hard to find elsewhere, we certainly don't want items to be hard to find on our site! With 200K subscribers and a huge social media following, we need to make sure that when we promote something new, it doesn't sell out of it immediately (which would be very disappointing for customers).
The amount of stock needed will depend on the price and popularity of the product, but as a rule of thumb, the absolute minimum required is three per variation (for clothing, this only needs to be the most popular sizes, e.g. S, M and L).
Oh, and if you do add stock levels, don't forget to tick the 'track inventory' box, otherwise the system won't track it.
