Support » Plugin: WooCommerce » Unique grouped child products?

  • Resolved aptx

    (@aptx)


    I want to have unique child products with their own images and metadata.

    As an example: qty 7 of Smasung SKU 32T4700. Each one is in a different condition and has unique images, price and internal reference number, but all still referenced by the same mfg sku. Creating SKU as a category is not what I want to do.

    A grouped product seems to get close, but the images for each child product need to be visible when selected as well as the specific metadata. I did not find any plugins that specifically support this. Is there a best recommendation to accomplish this?

    Thanks

    WooCommerce by default does not let you re-use the same SKU on multiple products. There are ways around that, however it’s not something that is supported.

    If you wanted all of these products to share the same SKU, you would need to set this up as a variable product. Set the SKU on the parent product, then make a different variation for each condition.different condition.

    Variations can have their own images. If you need more than one image on each variation, you can use a plugin such as WooCommerce Additional Variation Images.

    That would be how to handle this in WooCommerce itself. You may find other third-party plugins that add other functionality that fits your needs, however this would be how to handle this with WooCommerce itself.

    We haven’t heard back from you in a while, so I’m going to mark this as resolved – if you have any further questions, you can start a new thread.

    I figured things would go bad as soon as I mentioned SKU. The SKU is just the mfg SKU not the WC SKU.

    All products have a unique internal SKU. How else would they be unique products?

    A variation is just meta on a product.

    I also need each unique product available in search results. I do not think variation is a good solution for this.

    So back to my question about best way to make this work as a grouped product. The inventory structure works exactly like a grouped product. Th issue is the best way to display it.

    Hopefully this can be set to unresolved or actually resolved. It seems silly that I would need to post the same question again.
