We recommend reading this documentation before getting started with Reserved Stock Pro.
We highly recommend that you first install the plugin on a staging/test version of your WooCommerce store. This way you can feely test everything out with your other third-party plugins and payment gateways.
Make sure your caching solution is ready.
We’ve written a seperate doc with everything you need to know about caching with WooCommerce and Reserved Stock Pro.
After installing the plugin
Configure the Reserved Stock Pro settings from the WooCommerce -> Settings -> Reserved Stock. We’ve got a video walkthrough on the plugin page that goes over the settings in more detail.
Test, test & test to make sure your store is ready
We’ve done countless amounts of testing of Reserved Stock Pro and WooCommerce, but every store has a slightly different setup with caching, products, payments, etc. Therefore you should run some tests on your store.
Run through the following tests to make sure everything is working as it should.
- Add a stock managed product to the cart and check that the stock decreased on the product page.
- Open an incognito window (WooCommerce will see this as a new session) and check that the stock of the product is correct.
- Run through some test orders with your payment gateway. (Logged in customer, Guest Purchase, Guest creating a new account on checkout). Check that the stock levels are correct using an incognito window during the purchases.
Congratulations you’ve finished testing! If you ran into issues let us know via support with the details!
