One shared inventory for product variants - limited edition products

Hi all,


We are building a storefront for items that run in limited quantities. We want our products to have variants but be limited by a inventory count on the product itself rather than by variant as they are produced to order. For example:


Item A is having a 400 count run.

Item A can be ordered in size X, Y and Z.

Someone orders Item A and size Z. Count/inventory goes down to 399.

There are 399 of Item As remaining in any size (X Y and Z).

When count reaches 0, no more Item A can be ordered in any of it's sizes


 Our Shopfront is headless and is running off GraphQL, what would be the best solution for this?


Many thanks 🙂

Hi @jakub_s1 ,

We recently released Fusion Inventory which helps with this. With Fusion Inventory you could solve the example problem by creating a Material called "Product A"  that has an inventory of 400 pieces and then creating a bill of material for each product variant as follows:


Bill of Materials:

  • 1x Product A


After you enable inventory sync, the app will take care of syncing all product variants' inventories after an orders are placed/cancelled or new stock arrives.


Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
