Updating Stock Levels in WooCommerce

Last updated 25/02/2021

How stock levels can be updated from Cin7 to WooCommerce.

Overview


Stock levels can be updated from Cin7 to WooCommerce to ensure you can display accurate stock levels to your customers.

You have the option to update stock levels for all your products or only those products that have had recent transactions.

To update stock levels, products must be matched. See the Matching Products between WooCommerce and Cin7 Help article for additional information.

Updating All Stock Levels


To update stock levels for all products:

  1. From the left navigation, select Integrations then WooCommerce.
  2. Select Update All Stock Levels.

Updating Recently Modified Stock Levels


If you have thousands of products, it may be more desirable to update only those products that have recently been dispatched or received. Recently modified products include all products that have been modified since the last time the stock was updated.

To do this:

  1. From the left navigation, select Integrations then WooCommerce.
  2. Select Update Recently Modified Stock Levels.
    The number of products that will be affected is displayed in brackets to the right of this link.

FAQs

Is it possible to update stock levels automatically?

Yes. There is a setting available that controls this. See the WooCommerce Settings Help article for additional information.

How frequently should I update the stock levels?

Because stock levels will be diminished in WooCommerce as soon as an order is made, there is no need to update stock levels frequently unless other sales channels are causing your inventory to change.

For instance, if your Ecommerce store pulls from the same inventory as your WooCommerce stock, it may be desirable to update stock levels more frequently to ensure your WooCommerce stock levels are up to date.

Can I determine what stock levels are updated to WooCommerce?

Yes. There are settings available that determine what stock levels are updated. See the WooCommerce Settings Help article for additional information.

Can I update virtual stock levels to WooCommerce?

Yes. In order to update virtual stock levels, you need to enable virtual stock levels in your Cin7 account. See the Virtual Stock with Bills of Materials Help article for additional information. Once enabled, your virtual stock levels will be applied to the Updating Stock Levels in WooCommerce.

If you want to push branch-specific virtual stock, see the WooCommerce Settings Help article for additional information.
