Support for Bundled Products / Update Inventory for Bundles
We have a few websites that sell products to wholesalers. For example we will sell a case of a single SKU. Each case has 12 units. It would be nice if SS could allow us to setup virtual bundles that deducted multiple units of a single SKU.
Yes please, this would make life much easier. Compatibility between pick list and bundles, deducting inventory from individual items that are part of a kit. Or some other similar solution. The apps provided to handle bundles on shopify are sloppy at best. This SKU -> these items.

Hi, I use shipstation to track my inventory. I would like that when the bundled unit sells the inventory would automatically adjust level of the two (or more) products that are part of the one that sold. I know that I can use alias function to automatically adjust another product level when a specific product sells, but I could not find alias for bundles of products. It would be great to have such option. Agree with previous comments.
It would greatly help us if SS could deduct inventory from several different products when one SKU is ordered.
I.E.: "SKU-A" is made of products "X," "Y," and "Z." When a customer orders SKU-A, Ship Station could automatically remove an X, Y, and Z simultaneously from our inventory.
This would help when selling different bundles or kits that each include common parts/products.

Can I get an ETA of when this option will be available? It's really important to be able track linkable assets. Please let me know.

We have orders coming from multiple locations including paper POs. Shipstation is the only system that every order flows directly through. Being able to utilize that as an inventory system would be huge. However, we too have bundles and packs that are unable to be properly tracked currently. If it was possible to have product 'x' and 'y' as tracked inventory, and product 'z' that isn't tracked but instead subtracts from 'x' and 'y', that would be super beneficial.

this is important for our inventory management and we would love an update on when/if this will be a possibility in the near future

We currently have 2 customers who sell variety packs online. The order comes in and the SKU is for the variety. We know what the pack is and pull each individual piece from stock. At the end of the day i pull the inventory reports which are now not correct as i had to pull stock to fill the variety packs. I then manually go through the orders figure out how many variety packs we sold and adjust the inventory manually. It is a HUGE pain and a very time consuming job that i am paying someone to do. If SS offered bundles assembly kits that would remove the inventory from specific sku's that would be most helpful!

Has anything been done on this?? This is a MUST have for me, I currently use an App 'Bundle Kits' on Shopify but I am planning to use Shipstation to keep track of inventory for other 3rd party and all inventory management...
Hoping they have done something about this.

Here's an example of a situation where this feature is needed:
-We are selling this particular SKU: ITEM-4PACK on Store A, and using FBA to fulfill orders
-At this time we find that we have run out of stock for ITEM-4PACK in FBA, but we still have stock for ITEM-1PACK (same product, but in single quantities instead of a pack of 4)
-What I would wish to do here is first set the Fulfillment SKU of the ITEM-4PACK to ITEM-1PACK within Shipstation
-Next I would want to create a new automation rule that for every order of ITEM-4PACK from Store A, we adjust the order quantity to 4 times that of the original order
-End Result: 1 order of ITEM-4PACK from Store A gets translated as 4 orders of ITEM-1PACK for FBA to fulfill
Seconding this. This would aleviate a huge headache for us.

All of my votes are used up, though this is a close second in terms of priority. Very crucial to inventory management.
Yes, this is very crucial to many businesses and I too believe that this would allow better inventory management.

Is it possible to combine products or have something similar to the parent SKU where the system knows if a product is purchased in a quantity of 50 and we only carry it in a pack of 25, to remove 2 packs of 25?
yes we sell lots of bundles and are faced with the same challenge with inventory control

We need the ability to track product bundle kids. So if someone orders a WIDGET BUNDLE, which is a quantity 1 of WIDGET A & qty 1 of WIDGET B, it subtracts the inventory accordingly.
