Be sure to pick an item that is not on hold. Update if you delete this product. A Showcase product is VERY important in order for your store to show up when a showcase is searched.

Inventory Stock Configuration:
Inventory management is critical to any business. Be sure to enter a quantity so you never sell more than you have in stock. If you have unlimited inventory simply put 1000.
If you do not keep an inventory however you can make the product many times than place an amount that reflects this like 100 or even 1000. If you make one-of-a-kind items which cannot at all be replicated than our inventory management tool will be quite useful to you. Please note that inventory management does not work with variances only with the main product overall.
Want to place the product on sale and set a start and end date, you can easily do that here.
