Kenkinneen : I guess it would be a good alternative to start, not tracking the .25 .5 and .75 stock. That means I would need to adjust manually my inventory regularly, but still be a good start. Thank you

Hi, like many others here, i sell fabric and I would like to find a way to sell in decimal quantity, even if shopify doesnt manage decimal. First, to show you what i want the website to look like, here is 2 links of fabric shop that manage decimal and how they present it : https://www.clubtissus.com/fr/jardin-de-paris-rayon-menagerie-by-rifle-paper-co-turquoise (this website is made with shopify so i guess there's a way to do it !!!) https://www.fabric.com/buy/cw-843/charms-bees-yellow So when you buy a fabric with one of those website, you have 2 boxes to choose the quantity to order : if you want to buy 2.25m, you enter 2 in the first box, and in the dropmenu, you choose the decimal. With my research so far, i saw two things i can do, so please tell me which one is the best and if I need a developper to make it : Option 1 : If i sell fabric in meter, i could put my product in cm. For example, the cost for a product is 5$/m, the sale price is 10$/m and i have 10m in stock. I will enter 1000 quantity of 1cm, the cost will be 0.05$ and the sale price 0.1$. So in my POS, its easy to manage it because i will know how to enter the sale. Problem : Online, it will be to hard for the customer to enter the right quantity, because fabric is always sale by meter (or yard) not by cm. So is it possible to have my system in cm but a different view, like fabric.com, on the website ?? Option 2 : Everyone that i showed the fabric.com or clubtissus.com website told me that i need to use variant for my product. So, if i want to sell minimum .25m, i would need to create 4 product variants (.25, .50, .75 and 1.00). The thing i dont understand is how i manage the inventory with that method. If for example I have 20m of one product, that mean i will need split my stock between each variant. I could put 10 units of the 1.00m (10m), 6 units of .75 (4.5m), 5 units of .5 (2.5m) and 12 units of .25 (3m). Small problem : In POS, if i want to sell 2.25, i will chose 2 units of variant 1.00 and 1 unit of .25 . Its not to hard to manage, but a little problem. Big problem : How can i manage the inventory ??? Its not because i'm out of stock with the variant .5 that i dont have enought lenght to sell 1.5 m for example. And how can i easily see my inventory when i have many variant ??? And on the online store, i dont want customer to choose 2 variants, it need to be easy like on fabric.com Well, if anyone can help me to get things to sell like fabric.com and to still have an easy way to follow the inventory, I will really appreciate !!!
