WooCommerce Bulk Variation Forms

WooCommerce Bulk Variations is great for business-to-business sites, or sites where wholesalers are looking to order multiple quantities of a product from a single screen.

It also gives customers the ability to choose between purchasing single units or multiple quantities of variations at the same time, using the built-in Variable Products.
