You can set up Auto updates to automatically update your product availability, price, and inventory in your Shopify store. For example, if a supplier runs out of stock, then you can set up Oberlo to automatically make out-of-stock products unavailable in your Shopify store and invisible to your customers.

You can configure your automatic updates settings from your Oberlo admin in Settings > Auto updates.

Manage product availability updates

You can set up Auto updates to automatically manage your product and product variant availability in your Shopify store in the Settings > Auto updates section.

When product is no longer available

In the When product is no longer available section, select what you want Oberlo to do when a supplier runs out of a product:

Option

Description

Do nothing

The out of stock product is still available for purchase in your Shopify store.

Unpublish Product

Oberlo makes the out of stock product unavailable in your Shopify store. Your customers cannot see or buy it.

If the product is restocked by the supplier, then Oberlo doesn't make your product available in your store. You need to manually make your product available on your Online Store in your Shopify admin.

Set Quantity To Zero

The out of stock product appears as Out of stock in your Shopify store. If you want Oberlo to automatically update the stock after a product is restocked, then enable the product inventory updates.

When variant is no longer available

In the When variant is no longer available section, select what you want Oberlo to do when a supplier runs out of a product variant:

Option

Description

Do nothing

The out of stock product variant is still available for purchase in your Shopify store.

Remove Variant

Oberlo deletes the out of stock product variant from your Shopify store. Your customers cannot see or buy it. You do not lose variant sales data when it is deleted.


If your product has only one variant, or a supplier changes or removes all product variants, then Oberlo makes the whole product listing unavailable in your Shopify store.


If the product variant is restocked by the supplier, then Oberlo doesn't make the removed variant available in your store. You need to remap your product variant.

Set Quantity To Zero

The product variant appears as Out of stock in your Shopify store. If you want Oberlo to automatically update the stock after a product is restocked, then enable the product inventory updates.

You can set up Auto updates to automatically update your product prices and compare at prices in your Shopify store.

Option

Description

Do nothing

Oberlo doesn't make any price changes in your Shopify store and disables the Automatically update price when cost changes option for your products in the Products and Import List pages.

If you set your product prices manually, then you need to select the Do Nothing option. This way Oberlo disables the automatic product price updates for your products in the Product and Import List pages.

Update Price And Compare At Price

Oberlo automatically updates your product price and compare at price according to your pricing rules settings.

Update Price Only

Oberlo automatically updates your product price according to your pricing rules settings but does not change your compare at price.
