I want to set total quantity across all variants of a product, for example I have total quantity of 10 of one product in 20 different variants, how do I customise quantity so that when any one variant is sold then total quantity updates accordingly?

Hi @nat000,

If your product quantity isn't tied to its variants, here's a neat suggestion. You could use the Easify Product Options app (there's a free plan) to turn your variants into custom options within the app. This way, your main product won't have variants, and you can set a general quantity for it (let's say 10), without getting into specific quantities for each of the 20 variants 🤗.

Thanks, I've tried it but I don't see the option to add quantity for variants, I'm setting up made-to-order items, customer needs to choose material first then size then colour, I need to set quantity at the material level as availability is determined by how much material is left in inventory. Does the app have that function? or only available to upgrade pro version?

I initially assumed that setting the quantity to 10 for the main product was sufficient, but now I realize there might be more factors involved.

Could you elaborate on how you intend to establish inventory levels based on the materials used? Understanding more about your various product options and variants, along with your detailed management approach, will enable me to provide more tailored solutions.

Also, if you could share your website, it would be beneficial for gaining a deeper understanding of your products and requirements.
