I have built a couple ecommerce stores and it blows my mind to think that Magento doesnt allow easy use for product options quantity.

I am looking to build a online clothing store and obviously I will need to have the ability to add product options to specific products and give them all specific quantities.

ie.  Printed Tee - Size S - 5qty
Size M - 5qty
Size L - 8qty

When an item is also purchased the stock quantity would then need to be automatically adjusted.

I thought this would have been standard procedure for all ecommerce platforms.

I really need to know if there is a solution to this? There has to be an easy and time efficient way of doing this?

it is built in, just a pain in the butt.  you have to create some attributes (ie shirt size and color).  make them drop downs, put all your values in there.  then you have to make them configurable (when you create it gives you option when you select drop down at bottom of page).  after you save you have to make a new attribute set - call it shirt_size_color or something.

then you have to create simple products from the shirt_size_color.  in it you select the shirt size and color (you have to do this for all your items) make sure you set qty, status, in stock, and website or you won’t see it.  do this for all of your options.  then create a configurable product from shirt-size_color and add all of those items (last option on bottom of left menu).  make sure you put instock and status available on this item as well. 

there you go.  if you run out of one just open up that simple product and restock it.

I have thought about the custom option associate with qty.

I can get a stock list everyday if stock changed, like sample.csv.

SKU Sizes Qty
11111 S 5
11111 M 2
11111 L 10
11112 S 3
11113 XL 8
.....

the extension filter by sku , and custom option show only stocking options, we only change stocking list file if products stocking change. no database change, does it a good solution.

I hope someone develop the extension as well. I will donate.

simple product with custom option is good,however,when a simple product come with ten + custom option item,then 1000 simple product will result in 30 000 records in database.

i thought maybe a popup picker can save this work and database.

Hi

I would recommend you to check IMAGES AS CUSTOM OPTIONS extension. Please check its full description and the example site. There you will see how it works when changing Color, size, qty, and many other options for one and multiple items.
It is simple in use and can be customized/ supported at request.

Although this is an older topic we have created an extension that does the trick! Look at http://www.best4mage.com/magento-easy-configurable-product-matrix.html

With this extension you can easily create simple products on the fly from within a matrix. In our newest version you can even upload the different images from the simple associated products from within the matrix.

Furthermore you can manage stock, visibility, auto create SKU and set price of simple product! To make this price show up in the frontend you can use our other extension http://www.best4mage.com/configurable-products-use-simple-price.html that show the proce of the simple product, so no more playing with price additions.

Best regards,
Best4Mage

Hi

This Images as Custom Options extension works with the Simple products only, does not require creating additional products for adding more options to a product, you will be able to achieve the advanced and flexible functionality using Custom Options tab, it enables to use only one product image as a base for all further size, color, etc adjustments.

Your store will be equipped with the advanced set of custom options applicable for a simple product:
- Add any number of required options such as: styles, types, colors (specify title, price, select image per option)
- Set the sort order to adjust to order of options appearance on the page
- Add several images to have the main product picture updated according to the selected color or anything else.
- Price is set for each option individually and the total is updated once an option is selected
- Flexible Size option settings
- Fully AJAX driven product page
- and many more

Check the product page to find an example website. Test simple product link can be checked as well; the extension will work with any kind of product type configurator: clothing, doors, etc.
