We are currently using WooCommerce Multi-Store plugin with ATUM inventory with the Product Level addon to build an inventory syncing between all of our sales channels. So far so good, until it's time to make a variation product part. Then it will change on the store's side to a simple product.
What you need to know:
- Normal variable products with no BOM material or parts work fine and stay as variable products on the frontside.
- We tried to make the variable product part sellable, and it will time out (spin and spin) with only 38 variations.
- We tried to manually make each individual variation sellable. That works until we save the page and shop side changes again to simple product.
- We tried to install Atum on to the shop's website (as we use Multi store plugin) thinking that there wasn't a product part created on the shop website to sync to and got error codes across the whole site.
If we can't get this to work we will go from 3 Variable products to 114 Simple Products just for color variations. Is there anything else we can do? Is this a bug, an error, an operator error on our part, or is there an option I haven't done?
