When you have correctly installed our WooCommerce Multi Inventory Locations plugin, we can start setting it up. Open up the admin panel and you will see a few new navigation menus:
- WooCommerce > Multi Inventory
- WooCommerce > Inventory Manager
- Products > Inventories
If you can not see that menu make sure our weLaunch Framework plugin is installed! It is free.
Please also see this article on how to keep your plugin updated.
In the multi inventory page below WooCommerce you find general settings. These allow you to enable or disable our plugin, reduce manual orders stock and email inventory owners about new orders.
Export & Import Stock Quantities
Furthermore you can export and import inventory location stock quantities via Excel. To do that, click on the export inventories button. Then use this excel file to, change values and reimport the file using the import inventories button.
Inventory Product Page styles
Our plugin includes 3 different product page styles. These allow you to change the display of your frontend inventories. Furthermore you can turn the display of inventories in your WooCommerce Shop completely off (when you want to use backend only for example).
Select Inventory Popup
With our built in inventory popup you can allow your customers to select their favorite or nearest inventory location. This popup appears automatically or when you use the link on this shortcode:
[woocommerce_multi_inventory_change_inventory select_store_text="Select Store" your_store_text="Your Store: "]
In this options you can enable or disable the popup. Moreoever you can add a popup and intro text plus change the colors.
Backend Order Flow
When you do not allow customers to select their own inventory location, our backend order flow settings help you to select the best inventory automatically.
Set the best inventory based on:
- Custom Inventory
- Nearest Location (uses Google Distance Matrix API)
- Lowest Stock
- Most Stock
Multi Inventory Texts
All used texts in our plugin can be changed in this settings:

I do not want the pop-up to load on page except my products page. I don’t want it pop up on my home page. Is there a way I can do this?
Well currently not, but we can customize / add this feature for you on Charge. Contact us at [email protected]
I’m working with this plugin and “Advanced Product Fields Extended for WooCommerce”, which in some products allows to add an extra product with an extra fee but this extra fee is not getting reflected in the total of the cart. Am I missing a configuration?
I am not sure how this is related to our plugin?
Hello, when I change inventory in the product file, the price does not change, there are three inventories with 3 different prices but if I make the change, the price remains the same… Any ideas? Thanks.
Please submit a ticket on our website for plugin support.
Can the order routing be setup so the location is tied to an individual product? Let’s say you have location A that only stocks pants while location B only stocks shirts. Can it be setup so the order route is determined by that? If so, does the plugin create two orders if a customer has a product from each location?
Because each product can have one inventory stock, of course each product can be routed to individual locations. However only one order will be created.
Hi! I Had setup two locations with different stock quantitys, and i wanna allow to complete the order with only products from store A and doesn’t allow from store B, is that possible?
Yes we have a feature built in to restrict cart items only to ONE inventory.
