I’m just in the process of setting up a Magento 2 store and I was wondering if the following is possible.
I sell t-shirts with my designs on and I print the t-shirts as I need them. So I hold stock of plain t-shirts and then when somebody orders a t-shirt I print the design onto the plain t-shirt.
What I would like to do is create a configurable product that uses the plain t-shirts as it’s stock
Black t-shirt in Small, Medium, Large, X-Large
Blue t-shirt in Small, Medium, Large, X-Large
Red t-shirt in Small, Medium, Large, X-Large
Orange t-shirt in Small, Medium, Large, X-Large
So I create attributes for colour and size and use these to create the configurable product (T-shirt with design 1) and then repeat the process for all the other t-shirt designs using the same child products, so when a large black t-shirt is sold for design 1 it will update the quantity of the large black t-shirts on all the other designs.
Is it possible on the product pages to have the main image update when a colour swatch is selected, so it shows the relevant coloured t-shirt with the design on?
Hope that all makes sense, let me know if you need any more information.
I’ve got a test site I’m using to try things out. So I’ve got 2 examples which show the issues I’m having
Design 2 https://squashdoctor.co.uk/t-shirt-design-2.html I’ve added the 4 images to the configurable product but when the swatch is selected the relevant coloured t-shirt isn’t displayed.
Design 1 https://squashdoctor.co.uk/t-shirt-design-1.html I’ve only added 1 image to the configurable product and when the swatch is selected it shows the image from the child product, but that doesn’t have the t-shirt design on because that child product will be used for many configurable products.
I’ve had to use different set of child products for the 2 examples. Design 1 has images added for all the child products and Design 2 doesn’t have any images added for the child products.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
