Yeah weird request! Dont suppose there is any way to have variants on a product, which show up on the POS

but you dont see the variant choices on the ecommerce?

For those variants, unpublish from the "Online" sales channel and publish on the "POS" sales channel.

Thanks. I want the actual items to show in both but not the variants in the e-commerce.

What would show on ecommerce? Just general info about the product? Would they be able to purchase the product but only in one "configuration"? Or not purchase at all?

Exactly, just one variant would be available on e-commerce.

So we run a small craft beer bar and currently we are selling some of our beer in cans (we can it ourselves) and sell it online for delivery. Currently we

are only selling cans of the product, so there is no variant set at the moment.

However, when we open the bar in future, we will want the same products on the POS but to be available in different measures:-

1/2 pint

2/3 pint

1 pint

440ml can

 

Essentially I dont want people ordering on e-commerce to be able to choose anything else, other than the 440ml can size.

 

Hope that makes sense.

Has anybody got thoughts on this.

 

You may have a product which you can sell in store with certain variants but, you dont want to offer those variants in 

the e-commerce site, perhaps they make the product too heavy, too large or too fragile to ship.

 

Can this be added as a feature perhaps??

Can you explain how you publish and Unpublish certain products on one or the other?

@Lozza2304 You just select which channel you want each product on as per the images (you can also do this in bulk in the bulk product editor, see last image)

Just to clarify though - this does not answer the OPs question which was how do you hide certain variants from online but have them available on POS.

 

To do that, the easiest way is to create two separate products i.e. using OPs products. Product 1 - which is 440ml cans and Product 2 - which has all variants. Then you would make Product 1 available online and Product 2 available on POS.

 

Not the most elegant of solutions and you'd need to make sure you don't double up on stock of the cans, but works.

Hay Jon,

Yes thats a workaround for now I guess. Not ideal as it means adding the product twice and with a 

varied and changing inventory, its time consuming.

 

Cheers!
