Support » Plugin: Stock Locations for WooCommerce » Location priority for stock deduction

    Hi,

    I am wondering how to deduct stock from a specific location first. I see that there is an option to set Location priority, but it looks like that is not working, or its use is for something else.

    So, what I want to do is:

    1. have 2 stock locations – 01 and 02
    2. when I sell something I want that stock deducts from location 01 first until that location is empty. Then, location 02 comes in and its stock is used.

    I also see, when I have a product opened, that next to location name is a small circle which says: “Make Term Primary”

    If I do that, then deduction priority works.

    Now, what I would like to do is to set this by using location priority. Is that doable? I think I managed to do that at one of my staging websites, but now at the real one it does not work. I really do not know what I have done at staging, cos I deleted them.

    Or, if I have to use “Make Term Primary” option, I would like to use WP all import for that, but I do not know the name of the custom field for that.

    Could you tell me that?

    I detected custom fields for stock locations (_stock_at_ID), but for this I have no idea.

    Thanks,
    M.

  • I can confirm that the priority system does not work for now, the quantities are always scaled following the alphabetical order of location names.
    So the only way I’ve found to temporarily fix it is to rename the locations by prefixing them with numbers, for example 1-London, 2-Glasgow, etc.

    OK, got it.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    When location priority will work again?

    Hey, no problem. I am glad that you have detected the issue. Before, I was thinking that I was doing something wrong…
