Stock Locations for WooCommerce


Stock Locations for WooCommerce will help you manage your products stock across multiple locations easily. If you have multiple physical stores or storage locations, like warehouses, this plugin may help you.

You can print the locations inside a product page on the frontend, with this shortcodes:

Product pages

[slw_product_locations show_qty="yes" show_stock_status="no" show_empty_stock="yes"]
[slw_product_variations_locations show_qty="yes" show_stock_status="no" show_empty_stock="yes"]
[slw_product_message is_available="yes" only_location_available="no" location="location-slug"]Your custom product message/HTML here[/slw_product_message]

Cart page

[slw_cart_message qty_from_location="location-slug" only_location_available="no"]Your custom cart message/HTML here[/slw_cart_message]


REST API endpoints (both accept GET and PUT requests):

/wp-json/wc/v3/products/id/variations/id (first ID is for parent product, the second one for the variation ID)

This plugin requires at least WooCommerce 3.4.

How to show location stock quantity with a postfix e.g. 20+?

On settings page you can define a number. If location stock value will be less than the given number, it will display the stock value else will not show the exact number but a plus sign “+” just after the maximum number given.

A simple but powerful plugin that is doing just what it has to do, letting you have different stocks for your products. A quick and response on submitted errors is also just top notch=)

Hi, I tried this plugin for my woocommerce site. But stock is not updating when the order status is changed to completed. Please look into it

For me, this plugin is just what I need. I have 5 physical stores and an online store that uses the stock of the physical stores. With this plugin, the store manager can manually deduct stock from the physical stores the goods are sent out from. The plugin is being updated regularly and if any bug does appear, the support is super fast and helpful. The developer of this plugin, Alex, deserves an additional 5-star rating as a person also - he´s really helpful, polite and he genuinely cares that bugs/problems get resolved.

Had an issue with the plugin(it was not to do with the existing functionality but an extension of the plugin), Alex jumped in and helped me so soon. I am super happy! If you need a plugin for stock location management, this is the plugin! Nothing else.
