    Is it possible to set up a product some one variation is purchasable on the site, and another version is sold externally?

    In my case, I want to sell an eBook through the site, but have the print book link to an external vendor for purchase.

    This is unfortunately not possible. It would also be a weird user experience in my opinion, that once you select a specific option in a variations drop down box, you be redirected to the external site.

    How I would do it is using a 'grouped' product. Make a 'placeholder' product as grouped type and add both your own version (purchasable on site) and the external type product linking to the external site to that group. Then just add the grouped product to your catalog and allow your customers to make the decision there.

    If you really want to look at the variations route, it will be custom work.
