We want to update and check product quantity when user clicks on "Place Order" button. If product is outofstock in remote API and get 0 qty then user should not able to "Place Order" and display default error message.

Default Magento works that way and show message if we update qty through backend while customer is on "Place Order".

Please suggest.

You can create a custom extension with following 2 files.


<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">s
    <type name="Magento\Checkout\Model\PaymentInformationManagement">
        <plugin name="update_qty_from_api" type="{Vendor}\{Module}\Plugin\UpdateQtyFromApi" />



namespace {Vendor}\{Module}\Plugin;

use Magento\Quote\Model\QuoteFactory;

class UpdateQtyFromApi
    public function __construct(
        QuoteFactory $quoteFactory,
        \Magento\CatalogInventory\Api\StockRegistryInterface $stockRegistry
    ) {
        $this->quoteFactory = $quoteFactory;
        $this->stockRegistry = $stockRegistry;

    public function beforeSavePaymentInformationAndPlaceOrder(
        \Magento\Quote\Api\Data\PaymentInterface $paymentMethod,
        \Magento\Quote\Api\Data\AddressInterface $billingAddress = null

        return [$cartId, $paymentMethod, $billingAddress];

    public function callApi($cartId)
        $quote = $this->quoteFactory->create()->load($cartId);

        $quoteItems = $quote->getAllItems();

        foreach ($quoteItems as $item) {
            $sku = $item->getProduct()->getSku();
            $qty = $this->getQtyFromCurlCall($sku);

            $this->updateQty($sku, $qty);

    public function getQtyFromCurlCall($sku)
        // make your curl call here to get qty based on sku, and return that qty
        return 0;

    public function updateQty($sku, $qty)
        $stockItem = $this->stockRegistry->getStockItemBySku($sku);
        $this->stockRegistry->updateStockItemBySku($sku, $stockItem);

Replace {Vendor} and {Module} with your actual vendor and module name. And also add your condition accordingly in code. This will not allow user to place order if your condition does not match with your API.

Hope this helps you !!!

  • we want to update qty from remote API before place an order.. so cases like if existing product has 10 qty at backend and through remote API we got 0 qty .. so when customer try to place an order it should update qty to 0 and show a message .

  • @siddhrock, Then you can load the product using product model/repository and update the stock qty to that as per your api, The default magento should validate then. Check with that option.

  • We already tried that way to update qty, but it's not updating qty while clicking on "Place Order" .. we got qty from remote API and sales quantity as well.. but it's not updating it..

  • <?php foreach ($items as $item) { $sku = $curldata['sku'];//api sku $prodcollectionsku = $this->_productRepository->get($sku); //using \Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductRepository $prodcollectionsku->setStockData( [ 'qty' => $curldata['quantity'], 'manage_stock' => 1 ] ); $prodcollectionsku->setQuantityAndStockStatus(['qty' => $curldata['quantity'], 'manage_stock' => 1]); try { $prodcollectionsku->save(); } catch (Exception $e) { echo "Error In Product Save" . $e->getMessage(); } }
