Is it possible to have 2 products, where one of them keeps it’s stock levels in sync with the other? ie. Similar to a listing SKU in ESP

If so, can you do this if both products are in different attributes sets?

Hi Dave,

The answer is potentially yes using bundles, but I’m not going to have chance to look at this before January as the squeeze is on to get the base training guides completed.

We’re approx two 3rds completed, but that last 3rd involves a heap of work and some coding from me to get it ready for you.

Cheers Matt! Are you thinking of using a bundle which contains only 1 item? (ie. the one which you want the stock level taken from)

Hi Dave,

There are a few ways to do this, but I’m more concerned on how to get the products in via excel/csv first :)

Cheers Matt, I’ll have a play around with it. Trying to hold off until the guides are ready but it’s hard to resist!

@Dave1

Hi Dave I’m looking at this kind of issue also. Have you come across any guides as to how to crack this so far in magento?

Sorry Henry, I didn’t come up with a solution, although to be honest I didn’t spend ages on it.

Going to look at everything more seriously once the guides have been released, otherwise. As Matt mentions in his other post, might be an idea to group together to get this sorted (along with various other bits)

3 votes from me, let’s hope they get this sorted soon – it’s one of the sticking points for me at the moment

Howdy Dave,

Superb thank you.

I can see there is another level on top of what Magento can do, which is making configurable products from bundles, but right now if they lick this one, that’s very close.

Yeah, configurable from bundles would give a great deal of control and is something we use in ESP currently

Is it possible to create bundles from products from different attribute sets? I can’t remember why I needed that but I mentioned it in my first post so I must have needed it for something!

Hi Dave,

Fab to speak with you.

Right now M2EPro does support bundles, the part where it comes unstuck is where you want the same item in the bundle twice, it doesn’t account for the multiple quantity and lists an incorrect value (twice if you need 2).

With bundles they’re separate products so the parts can be pulled from separate attribute sets as needed.
