Use the Custom Stock Status extension for Magento to better inform your customers about stock availability of your products. Upload different images for different available items quantity and make your product page more informative and cute.

Even instead of the standard ‘Out of Stock’ Magento notification, the Custom Stock Status Magento extension offers you to specify the text and/or images you wish to be displayed on the product page.

With Custom Stock Status, you can define the expected date when the product will be available. So when a product quantity drops below 1, the admin-specified notification will be automatically displayed, e.g. ‘In Stock in 5 Days’.

The Custom Stock Status extension is very easy at installation and configuration. So it will take a couple of minutes to configure the module to show items quantity for simple, configurable, virtual, and downloadable products.


  • Flexible display of product quantity:
    • Text
    • Image
    • Text and image
  • Various products support:
    • Simple
    • Downloadable
    • Configurable
    • Virtual
  • Ability to disable Custom Stock Status for particular products
    This field is displayed in the General tab in Product information. It is easy to abolish this function for certain products the quantity of which you don’t want to display at your Magento store.
  • Unlimited number of custom stock display rules
    You can create multiple rules using different product attributes and set priority to them. Rules with greater priority value are processed first. Rule conditions in the Custom Stock Status module fully coincide with Magento Catalog Price Rules, making the module easy to use.
  • Use nice-looking images to show stock statuses
    You can use either the default graphic bar images to show how many items are in stock or upload your own catchy pictures that will be changed according to the product quantity left.
  • Ability to add & edit text showed up in custom stock notifications
    Liven up the standard ‘Out of Stock’ notification with informative text. Use the %qty% variable in the ‘Text’ field to display product quantity, or the %product% variable to show product name in stock status. For example, 'Hurry up! Only 10 items left!’ or ‘We're sorry but NY T-Shirt is SOLD OUT’.
  • Ability to display negative values of product stock quantity
    If you don’t want to lose your customers because of notifications that some product is not available, it is possible to set rules with negative values of product quantity.
  • Advanced stock status in selector for configurable products
    The quantity on configurable products page is displayed not only for the main product, but also for each option in the dropdown box.
  • Flexible rules for product selection
    Using the module, you have the ability to set and display stock status for each and every product as well as for the whole category.
  • Multistore support
    The Custom Stock Status extension allows you to set different images and texts for the same product sold in different stores.

Top Extension with TOP Support

Review by Lukas | Mar 22, 2017

Aheadworks confirms itself as Top provider of Magento Extensions. Fast and effective support.

Does exactly what we needed and easy to configure.

Review by James | Nov 26, 2015

Have used this extension together with another to display live stock values from our suppliers. Very easy to configure and display exactly the information we needed on a product page. So for some brands we can display 'less than 10 in stock' and for another it can be the exact value. Customers seem to like it too, where we have implemented with a supplier we've seen an increase in sales. We use other aheadWorks extensions and support is always good.

Doesn't work with backorder

Review by Jan | Apr 15, 2014

In reading all of the reviews for this extension, I assumed that this would talk to backorder functionality, as what good is showing custom stock status if the customer can't order the item?? That was me projecting our current non-Magento functionality. They do not claim that it does work with backorder, but I was shocked nevertheless to find that it didn't allow backordering. We are now paying a developer a lot of money to create a custom status/ backorder solution (essential for our custom products!), as Aheadworks was unable to provide additional development at this time.

Other complaint is that the rules are very powerful, allowing you to specify messages by Brand, description, category, etc. That is all cool, but the rules in the backend get unwieldy very quickly if you have a lot of items or groupings that you want to display custom status for. We had done only a dozen of our backorderable Brands out of 100 or more, and already had 10 rules, one called "5 days", one "7-10 days", one "10 days", etc. We then realized that it would be very difficult to go through and edit later (which we do, as vendors get backed up before certain holidays, etc.). We'd have to know how many days it is now in order to find the rule. Delete brand from that rule, go into the new/accurate rule and add that brand. It's not bad functionality, just so much more work than our current platform.

Bottom line: this works as advertised, but isn't a great choice for a huge catalog or if you want to be able to backorder items. We aren't really using it all.

Not a game-changer, but well-worth its price

Review by H. Osvald | Apr 8, 2014

This extension does exactly what it has been designed for, nothing more - and nothing less.
Looks really appealing, works flawlessly. Overall, we're satisfied with it.

Works as it should

Review by Ben | Jan 30, 2014

Everything is pretty straightforward here - it just shows the item stock in a comprehensible way.
This app would be especially useful for the store with large portion of Configurable products (like our own one).
We're fully satisfied with this ext

A must-have

Review by Charlie | Dec 6, 2013

This ext does exactly what it is designed for. A nice way to visualize your stock status and inform your clients on when the out-of-stock items are expected to arrive.
Also, I may be wrong on this, of course, but it appears to me that seeing some loud low stock notice makes a customer more eager to buy:)

Exelent module and support

Review by Kurt | Nov 6, 2013

Have been using the module for three days. Cool tool for your store stock visualization.
Also great support. I faced some installation problems, however tech guys from support fixed them like real pros, and now the module works like a charm.


Nice Extension

Review by Beverly | Sep 10, 2013

I have used with Magento CE version.
* Excellent service and support
* Superb Extension
* Easy installation + Configuration
* No conflict with other modules

Very convenient

Review by Michi | Jul 11, 2013

Very nice extension to have if you want to show your product stock levels to customers.
I got this extension because when our stocks run out once in a while, we receive a lot of phone calls or emails from customer regarding when those products are coming.
And this extension solves that problem.

Easy to use

Review by Bo Tranberg | Apr 5, 2013

Its easy to use after you learn how to make rules and how to sort them. But would have liked the ability to overrule the gneral rules on the product-page, to make the specific product stock status. It can be done by rules, but you will quickly get a lot of rules.


Review by Torsten Homeyer | Feb 11, 2013

WOW what a brilliant customer service. After the installation i had problems with a 3rd party extension. But no problem for aheadworks. They fixed it. The "IPhone" extension was our first from aheadworks, the "custom stock display" our second and we take the "catalog permission" next. Why? Because i know it will work!!!

What a reliable team. Thanks


Review by Tomasz | Sep 11, 2012

HI. I just bought and I'm happy. very customizable, ability to show image stock for products with negative stock level. Great. everything out-of-the-box

Nice Solution

Review by Dario | Apr 12, 2012

The stock module was the solution of my problems, I can do the promo and estimulate the client to buy the last units in promotion.
Tha aheadWorks support was great and give me all the necessary support when I need.

Less Question. Much more Sales

Review by Jerome | Feb 27, 2012

This changes things for our business. Less customers were asking on the stock status. We programmed in such that it fit our business nature of stocks status and delivery time. Overall, this mod is for you !!!

Little Green Bar

Review by Nick | Feb 3, 2012

I installed this myself and it is working like a charm. Not only can my customers see how many we have left in stock, my employees also can without the need to log into the back-end! Thanks!

Owner -

Review by Joanne | Jan 18, 2012

This is a great extension, but it lacks one important feature - the ability to create a message if the inventory level is zero or less. There are many times when my inventory has reached zero for a product, but I have more arriving shortly. In these cases, I would like to be able to display a message telling customers that the product is backordered, but that ordering is still allowed.
