How the product stock quantity is decreasing automatically in magento2 before shipment(not saleable quantity)

1 Answer 1


I imagine the quantity that is decreased is the Salable quantity. From the frontend, it appears as if the quantity has been decreased. But in reality MSI only reserves the items that are ordered.

The flow is as follows:

  • When your order is placed in Magento 2, the salable quantity is decreased.

--> Magento removes the quantity for the items in the order (these have become reserved)

  • When the shipment is created, the quantity is decreased. This is something we are used to.

See below in the screenshot, we can see 2 columns for the quantity. Hope this is the problem you're having, good luck

  • Thanks for your answer. I checked this but its not resolved Is there any chance to reduce the normalquantity before shipment?
