I'm currently making the move from Wix to Shopify.
At the moment, I have products that I want to keep an inventory of automatically, while they are being sold in bundles. I've searched the topics already, but nothing covers this exact issue.
I'll provide an example.
I sell soaps in 8 different fragrances.
I want to create a pick-and-mix type bundle, where the customer chooses any 3 soaps they want, to make a saving. They could pick 3 of the same fragrance, or any other combination. I can currently do this using a Presto-Changeo app called Bundles & Connected Inventory via my wix site, however they don't have a service available for Shopify.
This ultimately creates numerous variant options that far exceed the Shopify limit of 100; 512 variants in fact.
Is there an app or work-around that enables tracking inventory of multiple linked items that exceed the Shopify limit?
I wonder if you take a look at our app, BYOB? You can set up custom bundles, e.g. select any 3 variants from a collection for a fixed price or fixed amount off discount.
The products are shown a single page for pick & mix. If you want to show individual items on the cart, please refer to this sample bundle.
If you want to show a bundle SKU on the cart, it's also ok. After the order is paid, the bundle SKU is broken into individual items. So the inventory is kept updated. This feature is powered by the latest cart transformation. Here's another sample bundle for your reference.
I have a viable solution for your situation, which involves leveraging the capabilities of 2 Shopify apps in tandem to meet your specific requirements. If you're open to exploring this option, I'd be more than happy to guide you through the process, including recommending the relevant apps and providing step-by-step instructions on setting them up 😊.
Could you kindly share the solution you've found?
Here's a suggested approach that you can consider alongside your identified solution to choose the best fit for your store:
Begin by creating a soap combo product, specifying its discounted price (e.g., individual soap priced at $10, combo of 3 soaps at $25).
Utilize the Easify Product Options app to establish Fragrance options for customers purchasing the combo, allowing a maximum of 3 fragrance selections. Link each Fragrance option to your Soap products using the Add-on product feature.
However, if you link the Fragrance options directly to your existing Soap products, it might result in the combo price being the sum of the prices of the selected fragrances. To address this, follow these additional steps:
Create duplicates of your existing Soap products, setting the duplicated products' prices at $0.00. Also, utilize the seo.hidden metafield to hide these duplicates from the storefront.
Link the duplicated products with the Fragrance options in the app.
Finally, use an additional app (e.g., Sync Inventory - GoGo) to synchronize the inventory of the main and duplicated soap products, and your setup is complete.
While it may seem intricate initially, it's straightforward. If you encounter any challenges during the setup, you can reach out to the Easify team via in-app live chat for assistance 👍.
We have struggled with this issue for the last 4 years.
At the moment we are utilising 'Duplicate SKU' with Shopify to make it work, essentially it recognises the particular SKU across all bundles and keeps inventory of it as a singular item.
And use Simple Bundles to set up the bundles
If you do find another app that can do it easily, please do holler.
