I thought that was neat about using the bundles so you can manage your inventory with multiple ASINs on Amazon. I have a unique SKU situation and I thought this might work for me to track my inventory better. Basically we bring in lenses and frames for sunglasses from several companies break and use those sunglasses to make new ones. So for me it is tracking frames and lenses. So I can see how I could make a bundle to pull in from a global stock of say red frames, and blue lenses to make up the item, problem is that particular model of sunglasses may have several different frame colors and lens combinations. So this bundle I made up, cannot be part of a configurable product then?
So I guess I am wondering if someone might know how I can have a configurable product, made of of a bunch of simple/bundled ? products, that in turn pull from raw stock of frames and lenses?
Welcome to the forums…and wow what a suggestion to kick off with.
It hadn’t even occurred to me that you would need something like this, however I can now see what your after with your business model. I am going to ask Matt to take a look at this and see if it is possible to do this, and if it is, what is the best way of arranging it in Magento.
One of us will get back to you asap.

Hi Dave, thanks for replying to the post so quick. I wish I had of come across your website and tutorials long ago, although I have a fraction of my products up, it seems I may have to delete them and start over from scratch? Seems I made things complicated, and well did not have my attributes set up from the beginning properly. So looks like I may have to delete a bunch of products, set up my attributes correctly for the marketplaces, and start loading them up again.
I am presently stuck between Solid Commerce for my multi-channel stuff, and Channel Unity, which both have their pluses and minuses, but now I am thinking maybe of going this route and hoping M2e Pro picks up the other channels like Sears, Newegg, and soon Walmart.
Will be looking forward to what Matt may come up with
Thanks for the amazing feedback! So glad to hear you are finding the site useful. That would be a shame if you had to start again, but that is a large reason why we created the tutorials. Doing things in the right order in Magento can make it much much easier to use. Sadly these tips aren’t widely publicised which means people can go down the wrong path and end up doing things the hard way.
Many thanks for the feedback, will give Matt a nudge to answer your original question.
