Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Combining quantity available for Variations

  • I have a sailing club membership site. We sell tickets on our site and there are two different prices. One for members and one for non-members. The product is a single ferry trip, and the variations are members or non-members. Obviously the number of seats is at the product level not the membership variation level. We don’t care if seats are filled by members or non-members.

    My problem is how to set the quantity available at the product level, then reduce that quantity regardless of whether the sale is to a member or non-member. I don’t want to set a quantity for each variation.

    We are using Woocommerce and Stripe for payment on the Avada theme

  • @nevillet variations were setup with physical products in mind. So you’d have X number of brown pencils and Y number of black pencils.

    You might want to look at the WooCommerce Bookings extension. Under product data it has a “Persons” section and under that it has “Enable person types”. These person types allow for different costs based on the type of person. So you can set a number of tickets (for example seats on a boat), and then have different types of people who pay different amounts.

    Another option would be to change it to a simple product and have managed quantity, then tell members to enter a discount code. You could just add to your description “members enter code MEMBER2016 to get your member pricing”.

    Or use something like a product add-on checkbox. Check this box for member pricing, and check this box for non-member pricing (member pricing checkbox would add $0, non-member box would add amount X). There are tutorials for adding custom fields to products, and there are various plugins (paid and free) for adding basic checkboxes to products.

    For a variable product, go to the Product Data section > Inventory tab, and set “Manage stock?” = checked (Enable stock management at product level).

    Why do I keep getting emails from every single topic in the forum????? I’m not subscribed to ANY topics. How can stop this??? It’s very annoying….

    You should see a link: “Unsubscribe from this plugin” just above the list of threads.

    Thanks. Simple solution. Appreciate the help.

    Lorro, thank you for your help, but it doesn’t work. The link that’s above the threads says “Subscribe from this plugin”
    I don’t understand, all I did as asked a question and now I get bombarded by thousands of emails from every topic. I have never subscribed to any thing. This is what my profile says:

    Subscribed Forums
    You are not currently subscribed to any forums.

    The link works for me. However, in my profile I see Subscribed forums: not subscribed, (though I do subscribe to one) so something is not quite right.

    Ensure you were logged in when you tried it.

    Just checking – you don’t have two usernames do you, one subscribed and one not.

    I should try Subcribing then Unsubscribing, it may just trip the setting to off.

    If the problem persists, consider contacting a moderator for help, explaining what’s happened so far.
