How to Remove Stock Messages from WooCommerce Products
WooCommerce has pretty decent inventory control capabilities baked right into the base plugin. You can turn these on for each product in your store using the “Inventory” tab of the Product editing screen inside of the WordPress admin.
You can do all sorts of useful things with this tab like set the amount of a product you currently have in stock, decide whether or not to allow an out of stock product to be backordered and even tell WooCommerce to email you directly when a stock amount on an item reaches a certain level.
One of the defaults settings, once you’ve checked the “Manage stock?” box on a product, is to add stock messages to each product’s page on your store like so:
