This report displays a list of all the products on your site, and even the products you did not activate their manage stock are reported as out of stock

In the WooCommerce inventory report, the following information will be provided along with the stock quantity of each product:

  • Product: The name of the product.
  • SKU: SKU assigned to each product in the WooCommerce.
  • Status: Stock status including “In stock, Out of stock, On backorder”.
