I agree it should be a part of the plugin we bought, but believe it or not there's a plugin for that (!) - https://codecanyon.net/item/create-customer-on-order-for-woocommerce/6395319?ref=cxThemes&utm_campaign=commercial+plugin+upsell&utm_medium=plugins+page+view+details&utm_source=create+customer+on+order&clickthrough_id=1395575778&redirect_back=true

Using persons to stand in for product quantity works to a point as other have said, and we can use it for our workshop to keep track of booked hours for different service jobs, counted against the qauntity set as available in the linked Workshop hours resource. But what we really need to make this work properly is to be able to set quantity by Range for the resource (because available hours can change week to week) and also set a product to require more than one resource type (so product requires any of resources a - g AND any of h - n, for example).
So yes please have a look at sorting quantity out - not just for the product in total, but also for the way that product can require multiple resources, and the way those resources can manage quantity variability.
I need to be able to vary resource quantity by Range for a very different purpose. My resource is staff hours available in a workshop, that can be deployed on different bookable products, each with different quantity requirements. Since available hours may vary (week to week in my case) I currently have to set up 53 weekly resources to control that variability, and link every product to all 53. Pretty clunky, and prone to error!
What I need to be able to set one resource and then vary quantity available by range - in much the same way as overall base and block costs can be set for the product, and varied by range.
