I am new to this and amplaying at the min trying to decide if open cart is for me. I am a ladies clothing retailer and need stock level variation in each listing, ie I have a black top in sizes 8/10/12/14. Rather than listing 4 separate products Iwant to be able to list 1 product with the various size options and be able to list stock levels per size for them to be automatically deducted when a particular size sells.

Is this possible, I am sure it is I just can't find it!

Thanks for your help in advance.

Yes. Use the "Options" tab in the product edit area

Hi Qphoria, I must be blind. Isn't there suppose to be an Options link under Catalog or do we have to do the options via each product? If so I don't know how to do the stock levels with 2 options. I have a product that comes in various colors and sizes. How do I for example do this:

Size: M
1 in stock

Size: L
Color: MAUVE
2 in stock

Size: S
Color: BLUE
3 in stock

Hi msblack7of9,
I had the same problem facing me. The workaround for this i did is - made an option of every combination.
Option name: Size and color
Option value: M Yellow
Option value: L Mauve
Option value: S Blue

Then for the user it is something like this:

Size and Color
Please select:
M Yellow
L Mauve
S Blue

And you can control quantities by option

I am preparing a module to to import products from spreadsheet, where each line is a product variation. The spreadsheet structure then would be something like this:

SKU : Name : Price : VariationSKU : VariationName : VariationValue : Quantity
ProductA : T-Shirt : 15 : Variation001 : Size and Color : M Yellow : 1
ProductA : T-Shirt : 15 : Variation002 : Size and Color : L Mauve : 2
ProductA : T-Shirt : 15 : Variation003 : Size and Color : S Blue : 3

These 3 lines would import as 1 product with 3 options.
Let me know if you are interested in it.

Qphoria (or anyone in community)
please let us know if there is something already made or some better solution for this need.
