What is the current availability, and how is it calculated?

The current availability of a Product Variant in the Koi ecommerce platform refers to the real-time quantity of a specific product that is currently available for purchase.

It is calculated by tracking the number of units in Koi's inventory that have not been sold or allocated to pending orders, considering incoming stock, outgoing orders, and adjustments such as returns or cancellations.
