The x2xecommerce RMH-Shopify integration solution being a comprehensive solution allows you to change item availability at locations according to the available inventory at their respective locations in RMH stores. If an item is out of stock at a certain location the solution settings allow hiding the inventory location so that the item doesn't appear as “sold out” when that location is selected by the user. Also, furthermore, if the items are out of stock at all the locations the solution allows you to mark the item as archived so that it doesn’t appear as sold out at any location. This allows the webstore management to offer a more intuitive and user-friendly navigation experience to their site visitors by showing them only items that are available.
