I suggest you ...

stock levels messages need to reflect product options with stock levels

When showing stock levels on teasers of products that have advanced options, the stock level is the sum of all option stock levels.

This can be misleading to customers, especially if the options and add to cart etc are not shown on the teasers.

Need to split the stock level message into seperate stock levels for each option or in some way indicate that there are different options.

        Examples of eCommerce site that address and deal with the issue of different stock availability per variant are marksandspencer.com and johnlewis.com. In the former case they use a dropdown to allow the user to select the variant and this incorporates stock availability information.

        In the latter case they use a grid showing availablity per variant (Available, Limited Stock, Unavailable).

        However at Teaser-level I don't think it is possible/logical to show stock availability for products that have advanced options as the availability will vary depending upon the availability of the individual options.

        How else would you show them?

        If you turn off the "Show stock levels" option under Content -> Display settings then it will simply show "In Stock" or "Out of stock" on your products, regardless of options or not.

        I can't see any other way to give a concise indication of stock when options are involved.

        Would you want all options listed in the teaser with individual stock levels? Could get quite big.
