Hi! Completely new to all of this and I’ve searched the community for answers but it’s extremely confusing. I need to create a code for a new variant to list a product. Example: I have 5 of the product but it can be placed on multiple options which will determine the price.
Razorback Tank $22
Longsleeve T $27
etc. It’s my understanding that line items will not track inventory so I believe it needs to be a variant option. Thus far when I’ve listed inventory as 5 when I lost multiple styles or sizes it shows 5 for each one when in reality I only have 5 total to create 5 finished products from the variant options available. Where might I find information resources to create this variant?
Shopify doesn't support a shared inventory among product variants out-of-the-box, but I've found two apps (I'm not affiliated with them) that may solve your problem:
Connected Inventory: https://apps.shopify.com/connected-inventory
Both apps should allow you to set up product variants as normal but track inventory per product instead of per variant.
I hope this helps.
