The stock level indicates how many items of a product you still have in stock. You can determine an individual stock level for each individual product in your shop.
When orders come in, the stock level is automatically updated by your shop system. An example: You have specified the stock level of 15 pieces for a product. If the product is ordered three times, the stock level is now 12 pieces.
The stock level not only gives you an overview of your stock, but is also used for the availability indicator in your shop. If, for example, the stock level of a product is 0, this means that it is sold out.
You can find more information in the article Stock level / minimum stock level.
