Stock when selling products in packs with different numbers

I'm looking for an extention to help me with keeping stock. Here's my problem:

I'm selling rhinestones. I buy them in packs of 1440 pcs, and sell them in smaller packs - 100, 720 or 1440 pcs. So each color is a configurable product with 3 associated products - 100, 720 and 1440 pcs. 

 

I'm looking for an extension that can handle this in relation to stocks. If I have one pack of 1440 stones, and I sell one pack of 100, I need this to be registered in my stock and the system should know that now I can't sell the 1440 pcs variant.

Hi,

The best way I can think of doing this with default functionality is:

 

  • Create one product for your Rhinestones... with the stock quantity you have.. e.g lets say 1440
  • Create a bundle product for EACH stock size variant, so "Bundle 1 - 100, Bundle 2 - 720, Bundle 3 - 1440
  • Associated one product to each bundle - which is the simple product you just created.. if you create it as radio button, change user defined qty to no, and ensure 'default' is checked, enter your quantity amount - then the user cannot change the quantitys.
  • Also make sure you set is required to yes for this item.

You might need to do a little bit of styling from a usability point of view; but functionally this should do what you want.

Thank you very much. I've never tried working with bundled products before, but I will try this suggestions.
