WooCoomerce Inventory Control Glitch

I ran into an interesting glitch within WooCoomerce inventory control on the WordPress framework this week.

The problem:

When a customer ordered a product item from the site, the inventory in WooCommerce did not automatically reduce by the number ordered.

I noticed there was a global inventory count as well as a product level inventory count for the variable products. If the “Enable stock management at product level” is selected, it creates a conflict with the global stock quantity and the stock did not reduce.


Deleting the global stock quantity, in this case 197, allowed the stock management at product level to engage and stock started to reduce as expected.
