TOPIC: VirtueMart stock control on product varients

VirtueMart stock control on product varients 5 years 2 months ago #7346

Hi everyone.
How do I have stock control on product variants?
i.e. small, medium, large all with differnt stock levels.
I have followed some tutorials, but I still see no change in the front end.
Is it best to do this via a 3rd party plugin?
Regards,

Hi Alastair,

First thing is that VM2 stock control (if you can call it that) is at the level of individual products, so you need to represent your product variants as individual products. You have two sets of tools to expand this area of your catalogue:


It is not particularly hard to implement individual stock control of product variants using these facilities, but you do need to figure out a method of using them that fits your requirements.

But if you are looking for real inventory management, then I do not know of any simple VM2 plugin that is up to the job. FWIW most other open source shopping carts also fail in this area. My recommendation would be to interface VM2 to a real business-class inventory system. As it happens I am in the process of rolling out such an interface right now for one of my customers.

If you would like to have a discussion about this, please feel free to call me early next week.

Cheers,
