Woocommerce Inventory Not Updating

The inventory on one of my clients Word Press sites set up with the Woo-Commerce Plugin is not updating.  I've several other clients set up just as he is set up, and their inventory updates just fine.  I've no idea where to begin to look to address this issue.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

I'm leaning toward it having something to do with the PayPal IPN response...  Thoughts?  Anyone?  :)

brianmfalls, so the inventory is not updating upon payment I take it? This can happen:

if the paypal business email address is not receiving payments. Is the customer receiving completed payments?

If a misconfiguration is making it so woo can't send the Notification address to paypal. You can get around this possibility by going to PayPal IPN setup and adding your site's blog address and wc-api to PayPal setup itself, such as:

http://example.com/?wc-api=WC_Gateway_Paypal

Make sure http://example.com is your blog's root directory.

Turn on logging and check for messages.
Create a folder and file:
wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/logs/paypal.txt

Make it writable (755 for directories, 644 for files).

Is it possible people are not completing payment for their own reasons and so inventory is not updating because sales are not completed?

The server must support and enable fsockopen. Go to System Status under Woocommerce to see if it's on. This is a hosting issue.

If your server has a firewall, port 443 outgoing must be open.

Check cache as per

The url you provided (http://rcbros.com/?wc-api=WC_Gateway_Paypal
) returns the following:

Where is the 'PayPal IPN set up?

Turned out to be an issue with the users PayPal account.  They had the wrong email address (one that wasn't even set up) as a value for one of the email addresses on the PayPal account itself.
