Automate Your Inventory Management
Managing inventory can be a challenge for just about any business owner who sells products, whether they do so in a brick and mortar store, or they have a storefront that is only online. But that doesn’t seem to stop people from creating their own stores. There are a variety of options for business owners who want an online store, and WooCommerce is one of the more common choices among business owners. That is partly because the WooCommerce plugin creates an easy shopping experience for customers. In fact, it is primarily designed to make shopping easier for customers.
Despite the easy shopping experience for customers, there are limitations to what the plugin lets eCommerce store owners do. It may not be designed to create a seamless process for store owners when it comes to populating the store and tracking inventory and where things are in the manufacturing and sales process. WooCommerce does have a dashboard where you can manage inventory. It allows you to adjust stock quantity and manage stock, set limits on the quantity of a specific item that a customer can purchase at one time, and it can tell you what your stock status and quantity are. That’s where a plugin like WP Data Sync can help.
Limitations of WooCommerce inventory management for ecommerce businesses
- You must remember to enable stock management. This happens in the product inventory settings, and without checking that box, your inventory figures won’t update without a lot of work on your side of the computer.
- There are limits to how many products you can update simultaneously.
WooCommerce wasn’t designed to allow for updating products in bulk. You’ll have to update each element and review every product or item’s data to make sure that it is correct on your website. Whether you’re tracking product stock or material availability, this is true. That is time consuming and can be frustrating.
