Stock levels for product attributes


Recommended Posts

Has anyone thought of creating a link between product attributes and underlying products? I have some products where the options are actually other products available in the catalog - (ie a product attribute is actually a component, and the component is available seperately), and if the attribute/component should be out of stock, I've no way of indicating that the product attribute is out of stock when someone selects it. I've just launched the store, and I can foresee cases where people order an item, select an attribute, and the system thinks it's in stock when it will actually have to be backordered. Surely there's a simple way to link a product attribute to another product in the database, saying "this product attribute IS this other product", and it inherits the stock levels of the product.
