Split up attributes on inventory list
« on: August 18, 2011, 19:49:20 pm »
Is there any way to get separate attributes of a product to show up in inventory separately?  I have a product that we sell in full size and sample size. I didn't like listing them as separate products, looked redundant. Instead I listed both sizes as a custom attribute for the product. Full size and Sample size at -10.00. This works great because it gives the customer the option of a drop down to choose the size they want to add to the cart. The problem is that if they choose the sample size it decreases the inventory for the full size product. Is there a way to get Virtumart to list both sizes in inventory and reduce the correct item that is purchased?
I could really use some advise on this one.

Hi Shelly

Attributes are just an option for the main product.Whatever attribute is selected  the stock of your product will be updated.

Unfortunatelly attributes cannot connected with the inventory, but you can use child products fro that.
