Spesific multistore user case 1:
A WooCommerce web store owner need to set up a number of shops, and that shops should be run by different people in different languages. The shops should all share the same theme.
The store owner needs everything to work in the WordPress Multisite Network, or by using single stand-alone WooCommerce stores, but he needs the people who runs the shops to have access only to their own shops. The stock should be shared by all shops so that if a product is sold in one store, the stock of all stores updates.
