Have you setup pricing on the variations and have you set stock to a positive number.

sorry but one  extra problem - if you use   IE 11  I has a huge white space which you have to scroll down about 2 screens worth to get to he products.

As Julian points out its the pricing on the variations.
go to  one of the products scroll down to Product data - I assume you have set up a variable product then under variations defined the different size/colors/etc.. and then under each one of those click on the variation  and define the price and stock level and stock status.

you could also temporarily enable stock levels on the products so you can see the stock level from a buyers point of view just to check you have set it up right
- under woocommerce->settings->Products ->Inventory
and enable stock management and select "Stock display format" to "always show stock"
this will help debug your settings.

hey ChilternPC - in regards to the huge white space - even though i disable the slider in the theme - looks like the code doesn't reflect the proper behavior to hide it in IE 11. I'll have to reach out to the theme people to get that resolved. i guess i could just remove it from the code entirely - i wonder if it would break the "theme options" portion of the theme since that's where they have us 'turn it off'.

Since you and Julian both responded about the variants - here's what i did when i created them - as  you see the products have a variety of sizes.
KE 145514      500 ML                    1/EA        1-2 days      $5.99
KE 145516      25 OZ 750 ML      1/EA      1-2 days      $5.99

so i added them like so:
KE 145514   500ML|KE 145516 750ML

I hadn't intended to include the price because of the RFQ i was trying to put in - can i add the price and not show the price?

anyway - i added the attrib - saved it - went to variations - added - saved it - but didn't do anything else.

i saw on a video at like minute 11 - that he went through and set up EACH OPTION within the dropdown of the attributes added to the variant of manufacturer number and size - setting price and what not. is this neccessary since either a) i won't have a price set or b) i wont show the price or c) this is for a quote not a sale.

in my attributes i added mnftr num and size - should i just do size and add a sku in the variations? does the sku show? i don't know if people shop by sku or size in this industry. i'd like to leave it as it is and just get it working.
