Two products with the same inventory count?

New Member

Hi guys,

I sell T-shirts at limitato.myshopify.com. As you can see I have divided the products into a womens collection and a mens collection but the products are actually the same. Is there any way to make two products (T-shirt X Woman and T-shirt X Man) have the same inventory count? Now I have to manually update the inventory for T-shirt X Man if I sell a T-shirt X Woman.

Thank you!

Hi Emrik,

It is indeed possible to have two different product variants with the same SKU. Just update the variant through the shop's admin or via an API call. There are no restrictions on two variants having the same SKU.

Cheers,

Jamie

Hi Jamie, 

Thank you for your respons.

I'm terribly sorry, I didn't mean to write SKU. What I meant was the inventory. Is it possible to have the two products with the same inventory count?

Thanks agian!

Hi Emrik,

No unfortunately that's not possible, but there are several apps in the app store that can solve that for you.

Cheers,

Harold

To be clear, this is one of my apps that does it: https://apps.shopify.com/simplesync :)

Hey Emrik, you could write your own private app to accomplish this quite easily.

Just subscribe to 'order/create' webhooks, inspect the line items contained in each order to see if it contains the variant ID for T-Shirt X Man or T-Shirt X Woman, if so subtract one inventory quantity from the other variant.

Or, for a more robust solution, you could subtract inventory quantity from all variants that share the same SKU.

Cheers,

Jamie

Hi Jamie D. 

I'm having the same issue as well. I know there is SimpleSync, but it would be great to just write something if possible because I only need to do it for 3-4 products and paying 10-15 dollars a month for that functionality doesn't seem like the best allocation of resources if it can be avoided.

Is there a guide on how to do it somewhere?

Thanks,

Kory

Connected Inventory does exactly what you want. You will have two options to get inventory connected.

1) Connect variants by SKU value

2) Manually connect different variants together, no matter they have same SKU value or not.

You can checkout this blog post about how to synchronize shopify inventory of differnt products.

Thanks, Cesar
