If you’re selling physical products with your WooCommerce store, you already know that accurate inventory counts are really important. You need to know how many t-shirts you have on hand, or if it’s time to restock specialty items after a big sale. With WooCommerce, it’s easy to see how much you’ve sold on your store and watch stock levels.
When an order is cancelled or refunded, is there a way to have the stock level restored automatically on a WooCommerce store?
When an order is cancelled, what happens? What do you do when you have to issue a refund for an item that didn’t fit? Maybe you manually update stock counts after every cancellation of refund. But that’s more work than you have time for, and it leaves too much room for counting errors.
Fortunately, the WooCommerce Auto Restore Stock plugin automates post-cancellation stock updates. Simply install and activate the plugin on your WooCommerce store. Now your stock levels will automatically adjust when a customer cancels their order, or you cancel and refund for them.
