I use to sell some products in various quantities, lots of 2, lots of 5, lots of 10... It is very common on ebay. But in my store I want to offer those products without been grouped in a lot, I want to sell it individually. I can get some of this feature by the boundle product grouping various unit of this product under a bundle product. This way makes works well the inventory of magento but ebay listing cant reflect the real number of lots that can be sell. An example:
- I have a 'notebook' product that I sell individualy on my store, I create a simple product based on it. The initial inventory is 100 units.
- I create a bundle product that holds 5 units of simple product 'notebook'
- I list the bundle product on ebay, ebay tolds me that I have 100 lots avalaible. But if I sell it in 5 units lots I only got 100/5 = 20 lots available.
- I sold out this product, magento works fine and tells to me that I have 95 units available of the simple product 'notebook' after syncronizing ebay tolds me that I have 95 lots available when it have to be 19.
