    I found All Good things in Woocommerce till nOw, Because of that I rated it high.
    However if anyone please let me answer to my question, it would give me 1 more reason to love woocommerce.

    Query Scenario:
    I recently implemented Woocommerce and in trial session I found following issue:

    1. Initially, I provide 10qty for Product1. 2. place a Dummy Order from front-end of 10qty of that Product1. 3. Then After that I see Product1 is Out of Stock. 4. From Admin of woocommerce, If I cancelled that dummy order or reduce the product qty on that order, It Doesn't Update the Stock Qty of that product1.

    And I still see the Out of stock label on that product even after that order has been cancelled which reserved this qty.

    Hence is their any way to Auto-Manage this Stock Updates between orders and Inventory.

    Sincerly say, it would be really helpful to get this help because it would let us confirm that we should go ahead with woocommerce as our next ecommerce platform for our clients if this Auto-Update is Available in woocommerce.

    Thats a valid point, i never noticed that Woocommerce is behaving like that.

    On which Woocommerce version you tested this?

    Let add some quantity and then you can try to place your order.
    And I will cancel that order from admin.
    Lets see What happens ?

    For your test, I create 1 product with variation, there also you will experience a Pop-up and no options in Colors drop-down, even though I defined some.
    Why i Don't know ?

    Cancelling orders doesn't restore stock. You can do it manually from the order page (see the line items section, check them off, then select "increase stock" from the dropdown).

    Same with refunds.

    You have to define every variation with value , cost etc. Just add a simple product to test.

    @mikejolley don't you think Woocommerce should handle it automatically, this will look strange to anybody, its simple mathematics, if 2+2 is 4 then 4-2 must be 2 and it should be by its own.

    Maybe, but you never know *why* an order is being cancelled. It may be a manual order (shouldn't restore), it may be an unpaid order (shouldn't restore), it may be cancelled due to fraud etc etc. Its best to leave the decision to the shop owner.

    @Yogesh: Your Suggestion Worked ! Thanks. You can witness it.

    However @Mike: Will it be possible for you to offer this below feature for free in woocommerce next update:
    "Auto Inventory Management by synchronizing Orders and Product Stocks."

    @Mike: "increase stock" feature is working for making update on Order Line, but it doesn't reflect the stock changes in Product stock.
    Can you offer some little snippets for this tasks using some or the other hooks.

    Thanks for your Valuable Inputs.

    @mikejolley hmm, may be you are right. But we have 'status update' for manual order or payment on delivery or even if its an unpaid order. It should be deducting the inventory only when its paid or the status is updated as 'paid' (or something like that) and add it back to its inventory if cancelled due to any reason. Please correct me if i am wrong.

    @Mike: Thanks alot for your Inputs !
    However my requirement is:

    If its a Unpaid Order, then we call customer to please confirm whether they will recieve this order or they just tested our ecommerce service.

    So in that case,based on customer confirmation, we will cancel this order from admin or by some Bulk import of Order status.

    Hence will it be possible to automate this below process:
    "Restore order line qty and allow other customers to place order for the same product."

    @mikejolley first of all, you have earned me for life.

    Is this thing possible to make a product (or its variations) whose final cost depends on quantity, e.g. say 1 Comb for $10, 2 Combs for $18, or something like that.

    @mike thanks for sharing. Well i need your help in one issue. I bought UPS Plugin for Woocommerce for one of my client.

    The issue is I am using free shipping and local delivery ($5.95) for selected zips, now all i want is that UPS should not through any results on the cart/checkout page if the Zip is qualifying for free or local delivery shipping. Checked it in the options, may be i am missing something. Pls help.

    There isn't a way to do that, without custom code to conditionally disable methods.

    For future ref, post on support.woothemes.com please, not here ;)

    Hi Mike,

    I got to express one important Suggestion:

    Once I read somewhere: you posted that you already made change in core repository of woocommerce for inclusion of 'Rupee' currency.
    However Problem we are facing on every new woocommerce update is that:

    We always need manually change Currency symbol to 'Rs.' in woo-core-func file.

    So if its possible could you please update core woocommerce repository with this symbol 'Rs.' for Rupee currency as other Ascii value which is currently used there is not supported in many browsers yet.

    Awaiting your Update.

    Thanks.

    Hi there ,

    I am using woocommerce 2.0.13 version and having an issue with inventory management.

    It seems stock is not being managed in this version. I set quantity of my product to 1 and when i buy it , everything goes fine but it seems user is able to buy it again as stock quantity is never being reduced back to 0.

    I am badly looking for a solution and any help in this regard would be highly appreciated.

    I have enabled Manage stock at product level and under woocommerce setting inventory page as well.

    please help.

    thanks in advance.
    Rajesh
