Hi Paul, I have a similar question, but the price is not the same for each option. I'm selling kits with the option to have one element premade by me, which adds to the cost. I have been using variants but that means I have to watch the inventory like a hawk and try to balance it after every order.
The variants were, 'I'll make the beads ($20)' or 'I want premade beads ($32)'. It was easy for customers but kind of a nightmare for me, as I am doing very small batches that sell out in a day. I go crazy trying to avoid overselling!
I tried 'add premade beads' as an option to add to an order, but then somebody just bought the added product without the main one. Is there a way to have variants draw from the same inventory count? Or to choose an item and then choose the type, with price add-on?
Thanks to you or anyone who has a suggestion!
