With any product you can specify if you do or do not want to track inventory.
Track inventory on this product will give you a field to enter a Quantity. This is how many of the item you have In Stock or Available to Sell.
Do not track inventory on this product will hide the Quantity field as the product is not tracking inventory and will always be In Stock or Available to sell.
These "Parent" product types do not have a quantity of their own. Instead, when tracking inventory, they will only be In Stock if all of their Variation Products or Group/Bundle Items are in stock.
This field is used for shipping rate calculation. Measurement units (lbs, kg) are specified by your enabled shipping methods. Only enter numbers here (example: "0.21")
On simple products you will have access to more advanced inventory settings.
