Support » Plugin: Stock Locations for WooCommerce » Cannot add stock

    We sell our products from our own site and we dropship products for another website.

    We want a way to manage the stock that is assigned to the the other site and make sure we don’t sell out on our site.

    We need customers to our site to see the stock assigned to our store, but they don’t need to see other locations.

    We need to select the other location when creating a manual order for dropshipping.

    I created two locations but I cannot get the stock quantities to appear under Stock Locations. I put the stock for each location and update the product then the stock returns to zero. The total stock under stock locations is always zero.

    This is a simple product.

    Any idea what could be wrong?

    Thanks

    You are missing two thing:

    1. Enable/Disable option for each stock location on edit stock page
    2. Cron job for keep the products stock updated

    Hi Fahad,

    Thanks.

    I enabled the two locations and now the stock is working.

    When manually adding an order how do I choose which stock to take the product from so that it uses different stock pricing on manual orders?

    It’s showing 2 boxes with the stock in each location but it’s not changing the product price if I select from the second cheaper location.

    Thanks!

    Product price will work through product page, not from the manual order because actual price remains always but we overwrite the values during checkout process. This is how discount coupons and other fees work in WooCommerce. Once they are recorded in the order, those are static, then doesn’t matter if you change the prices for the products. So whatever you are adding to the manual order creation, it is a kind of static data, do not expect the logic/rules as per location selection.

    I’m not sure I fully understand.

    What is the point of having different prices assigned to different locations?

    How do I create an order (manually) and have the stock taken from my other location and show the price for the other location on the invoice?

    Or is that not possible?

    I am not showing my customers the different locations, on the front end I only want the stock and prices for the website (location A).

    But I receive orders by email that I have to create manually and I want those to be deducted from the stock assigned to location B.

    Thanks!

    Different prices for different locations mean, one location might will have different shipping cost and another will have different. For example, someone pickup from a store, and another location is providing the shipping facility. Also this feature is not the free version feature, there is a checkbox on settings page which will make it work, that requires you to have the pro version.

    Hi Fahad,

    Ah ok so it’s just a pro feature.

    In that case after I do some testing I will ask my boss to pay for Pro.

    Thanks for your help.

    Sure, but still must discuss in details about the manual adding order location and expecting the relevant price.
