Hello Shopify folks and app developers,
I am trying to looking for a way to consolidate my products so I don't have to add the same product more than once that I order from different vendors depending on available stock levels.
eg. Vendor A
right now I make two or three of the same item but I put an abbreviation at the end to tell me which vendor this "same" product is from. eg. Item 1 (A), item 1 (B), item 1 (C)
the product also can have different cost price depending who I order the product from.
is there anyone with this same predicament and have a solution for this ?
In Shopify you can not have dynamic prices. So if product A from vendor A has different price than from vendor B - you either have two variants of the same product or you have 2 products like you have now.
Other solutions require creating draft order via API and sending invoice url to customer - but this solution requires developer and private/custom app to make it done,
