Creating a 6pack of 1 and the same configurable product
Suppose we sell T-shirts
Now we want to create a 6pack? or 4 pack for that matter of the same product
Both should deduct stock qty etc. Only the second pack product works that if you order 1 piece => you order the pack of 6 (consisting of 6 simple products).
I really appreciate your help.
ps. programming wise. One could use a configurable product, only there should be a field "pack size". If the pack size is 6. Then a customer still orders 1 pack, but in the code qty 6 is deducted from the stock qty of the underlying simple product
Literally I would call this 1 bundle of 1 of the same product (where the bundle can be a bundle of 4, 6, 9 whatever default qty)

Magento does not do bundled configurable products out of the box.
On Magento Commerce there is an extension, that costs money, to provide that functionality.
I have used it on a couple of stores, one of them enterprise, and it works great.
It will allow you to create a bundled product with product options for the same configurable products as many times as you want.
You would probably need to set up a bundled 4 pack, and a bundled 6 pack.
I suppose you could optionally do a bundled product with 4 of them required and 2 more not required if you wanted only 1 product to handled both the 4 pack to 6 pack. But then your product name and description would need to be creative.
