  2. Change Product Stock Status in Magento

    To keep your customers satisfied with the diverse catalog you should always pay close attention to the Magento product stock status. With a huge store with thousands of products managing stock status might be daunting.

    However, we've got one feature that will make this process a little easier.

    Magento allows you to configure the stock status in a certain way, so once there are only a few products left, the product will become out of stock. You can also decide whether to display the out-of-stock products on the storefront.

    However, sometimes you need to change the stock status yourself from the admin panel. It is easy to do for one product, but when it comes to multiple products, the process becomes unbearably long.

  9. Magento 2 Order Comments: Improve Customers Experience

    Magento 2 order comments allow you to keep a conversation with your customers and provide a better experience for them. While it is not such a significant detail it can play a big role in customers' purchasing journey.

    How exactly?

    By default, only admin users can add comments to order in Magento to verify some details or update customers about the whereabouts of their order. 

    So, these are admins who initiate the conversation. If customers need to add some details to their order, they need to reach out via contact form, sales email, live chat, etc.

    Then admin users can add customer comments to the order. It is an unnecessary fuss that only makes order management more time-consuming.

    It is much better to allow customers to add order comments directly on the checkout page.

  19. Solved: Package exists in composer repo 1 and composer repo 2 which has a higher repository priority

    When you install some new extension package in Magento 2 via the composer you can get an error:

    [InvalidArgumentException] 
    Package vendor/module-name exists in composer repo (https://repo.packagist.org) and composer repo (https://repo.magento.com) which has a higher repository priority. The packages with higher priority do not match your constraint and are therefore not installable. See https://getcomposer.org/repoprio for details and assistance.

    This error message is self-explaining and contains a link to the composer documentation.

    The problem is that a module you try to install has an old version in the Magento composer repository and a new version in the free public packagist.org repository. However, the Magento repository has a higher priority and that is why composer cannot install the latest version and throws this error.

    What you need to do to solve the issue is to:
