1. Out of Stock Message Refinement

What's New?

Now, when an item is out of stock, SuiteCommerce and SuiteCommerce Advanced provide an error message that details the exact quantity unavailable. This improvement makes it easier for users to make decisions, improving their user experience and potentially Conversion Rate.
