Why Hide Out Of Stock Variants?

That one thing, no merchant wants is to irritate their customers and lose them for good, just because options/variants of some products are sold out but still visible on product pages by default. The customer gets to know if the variant option is sold out or in stock only after they click on the product variant that they would like to purchase.

Example: Let’s say you’re a merchant selling a T-shirt in 10 different colors. A customer lands on the product page and chooses the blue color but guess what? It is sold out!? The customer then decides to pick a green one...but sadly that one is sold out too!!?? Frustrating, right? You might lose the customer forever. It would have been better if the sold-out variants could be seen at a glance or could be hidden. Camouflage handles this for you :)

A stock-out situation is problematic to both suppliers and retailers for several reasons. Not only does the out-of-stock problem have an adverse effect on profits, but it also causes significant customer dissatisfaction. In fact, out-of-stock (OOS) hurts the customer's shopping experience.

Popular use cases

  • When you want to hide out-of-stock variants so that your customers can focus on what is currently offered by your Store
  • When you want to hide "Unavailable" variants but keep out-of-stock variants visible
  • When you don't want to sell a few variants (no matter what the current inventories are)
  • When you dropship but are not sure if the supplier will be able to fulfil item when the inventory level goes below quantity X
  • When you are running regular sales or special sales like Black Friday / Cyber Monday (BFCM) sales and want to hide variants as soon as they are sold
