Product quantity on product rather than variant

I am wanting to try and set a product quantity rather than a variant quantity, is this possible?


What I am trying to achieve is my wife is selling hair bows which have 3 different ways of attaching so would like it if someone bought 1 for it to remove this product from sale but I only seem to be able to set the quantity to 1 per variant which would then appear to 3 in stock (1 of each variant). Is there a better way to achieve this?

This is an accepted solution.

Shopify doesn't have the ability to track the product as a whole and not the variants.
You could remove the variants so the inventory would only track the bow instead then use an app to display the variant options.

We offer an app that can do this called Custom Product Options by W3:


You can see the app working on our example site:
