For answering the exact question, we are introducing the Stock Progress bar addon for ProductX. From now on, ProductX users can increase their sales by implementing the progress bar to represent the stock of the products.

Enable on Variable Product
Not its time to add the stock progress bar to a variable product. It is a bit complicated, but if know how the variable products it’s not so hard.
Variable products refer to products that have multiple variations such as color, size, etc. For example, we have set up a headphone with two variations, wired and wireless for which we are going to enable the stock progress bar.
The products of the WooCommerce store would have different types of variations. However, the process will be the same for all types of variable products. So, in order to enable the stock to progress on a variable product.
- Go to a product having variations.
- Click on the Variations Tab.
- Start editing a variation.
- Enable stock management option.
- Add maximum order quantity.
That’s all, follow the same steps for all available variations. At last, update the variable product page and see how it looks at the front end.
From now on, the visitors will see the stock progress bar after selecting a variation from the product for which we have just configured.
Enable on Custom Template
Now that you have learned about enabling the stock counter bar to be simple on variable products but what if you want to enable it on a custom template?
Don’t worry ProductX got you back and the WooCommerce Builder Addon is your savior.
It helps to create custom templates for Shop, Archive, and Single Product Pages from scratch.
So, if you make a custom template for single product pages by using the WooCommerce builder addon for ProductX the stock progress bar will be according as you have configured no matter whether it is a simple or variable product.

Average Order Value: Average order value refers to the average spending amount of the customers of eCommerce sites. All store owners want to increase it as it has a massive impact on revenue. So the question is how to increase the average order value.
The WooCommerce store owners have a common practice which is to increase average order value. One of the important common practices is showcasing three types of WooCommerce related products. So that, the customer would like to explore more products after adding their desired products to the cart.
But with this method, they would not make an instant purchase for additional products. For that, you have to give a reason to make the purchase now than later. With the stock progress bar that can be possible as it indicates the remaining quantity. So they would likely purchase the product before stocking out.
