out of stock message at checkout
« on: August 26, 2016, 10:09:50 am »
Recently I discovered this issue;

If customer buys lots of products and finally want to checkout..
a product is out of stock (bought by other customer at same time)

This causes an error at payment/checkout, but without any message.....
Is it possible to show a message if this happens like; 'sorry product xxxx is just sold and out of stock! payment not possible'
Even better if 'out of stock product' is highlighted or message is showing next to product.

Joomla 3.6.2 virtuemart 3.0.16
Hope this is possible....

Regards,
Pascal

I tested this just 1-2 months ago and it works with message. In vm2 it was a bit buggy.
I should fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member
