Currently, when you enter variants into products, the variant SKU's override the product SKU's. Its very helpful to have different variant SKU's but what about when both the products SKU and the variant SKU needs to be pulled for accurate inventory? There is not currently a system wide solution. Our work around has been a bundle app but it forces us to build a ton of bundles to include each variants so that both the products and variant SKU's gets pulled out of inventory. This is extremely time consuming and cumbersome.
An easy solution, if Shopify added it, would be to allow the product SKU to still be entered even after adding variants and then give the user the option to have the variant SKU override the product SKU or have both SKU's included so the inventory stays accurate.
Am I missing something? Is there an app or add on or widget I can use to solve this problem?
It sounds like there are many manual steps in your inventory process, so I can understand why you might be frustrated.
I’m interested to learn more about how you track inventory. Can you walk me through what that process currently looks like for you?
Here's what I'd like to understand:
If you can provide me with this information, it'll go a long way towards helping me figure out the best way for you to track inventory.
In your situation, I recommend a solution that's more effective than using bundle apps—Easify Product Options. This tool allows you to create bundles from existing products while keeping them separate for improved inventory management 🤗.
For instance, you can set up the main product "Doors" and designate Handles, Frames, and other accessories as custom options. Link these options to your existing products using the Add-on product feature.
