Quantity of Grouped Product: Variations

If you want to list a Grouped Product as a Multi-Variational one on the Channel, you can configure it in Variational Product Settings via M2E Pro.

We have a Grouped Product that includes 2 Child (Associated) Products. Each Child Product has its own quantity in Magento.

Note

A Grouped Product consists of simple products that are presented as a group. The quantity of each Simple Product will be updated automatically once a Channel order is placed and imported to Magento.

Our Child Products are:

  • A Pump - its quantity is set to 17.
  • A Fitball - its quantity is set to 25.


The quantity of a Grouped Product is calculated as the sum of quantities of Child Products.

Note

For eBay: If the Ignore Variations option is enabled, a Grouped Product will be listed as a Simple Product on the Channel.

Case 1. 100% of Product Quantity

In Selling Policy, it is set to use 100% of Product Quantity. Select this value if you want to list the entire Magento product quantity on the Channel.

We need to calculate the sum of quantities of Child Products: 25+17 = 42

The item will be listed on the Channel with 42 available pieces.

Case 2. 75% of Product Quantity

In Selling Policy, it is set to use 75% of Product Quantity.


Tip

Pay attention to this case if you want to submit only a certain part of Grouped Product quantity to the Channel.

Begin with calculating the quantity of each Child Product individually based on QTY Percentage. For that, multiply product quantity by QTY Percentage.

Fitball: 25 (product quantity) x 75% (QTY Percentage) = 18,75 ~ 18

Pump: 17 x 75% = 12,75 ~ 12

Now let’s calculate the sum of quantities of Child Products: 18+12 = 30

The item will be listed on the Channel with 30 available pieces.

Case 3. 100% of Magento Attribute Value

In Selling Policy, it is set to use 100% of Magento Attribute value.

Note

After the Channel Order is imported, Magento will reduce the quantity in the default Product QTY Attribute. The quantity specified in your custom Magento Attribute value will not change and will still be submitted to the Channel. You need to make sure to update the quantity accordingly.

The Magento Attribute has values 9 and 5 in Child Products. In our case, Magento Attribute is “QTY”, but you can select any other appropriate custom Attribute.

We need to calculate the sum of quantities of Child Products: 9+5 = 14

The item will be listed on the Channel with 14 available pieces.

Note

For eBay: In case the Ignore Variations option is enabled, the QTY listed on the Channel will be taken from the Magento Attribute value of the Parent Product.

Case 4. Conditional Quantity Enabled

In Selling Policy, it is set to use 100% of Product Quantity with the enabled Conditional Quantity option.

Before you set Min and Max QTY to Be Listed values, note that they affect the quantity of each Child Product individually.

Calculate the quantity of each Child Product based on QTY Percentage:

Fitball: 25 (product quantity) x 100% (QTY Percentage) = 25

Pump: 17 x 100% = 17

But mind that Max QTY to Be Listed is 5 so this quantity value will be submitted to the Channel.

Now let’s calculate the sum of quantities of Child Products: 5+5 = 10

The item will be listed on the Channel with 10 available pieces.

Note

If the quantity of all Child Products is less than the specified Min QTY to Be Listed value, the item will not be listed on the Channel.

For the item to be submitted, the quantity of at least one of the Child Products has to be equal or more than the value set in the Min QTY to Be Listed field.

Case 5. Custom Value

In Selling Policy, the QTY is set to use a Custom Value. ‘

In this field, you have to enter your own quantity value based on which QTY calculation will be carried out.

The specified Custom Value will be applied to the quantity of each Child Product individually.

We need to calculate the sum of quantities of Child Products: 7+7 = 14

The item will be listed on the Channel with 14 available pieces.

Note

After the Channel Order is imported, Magento will reduce the quantity in the default Product QTY Attribute. The quantity specified in your custom value will not change and will still be submitted to the Channel. You need to make sure to update the quantity accordingly.

Case 6. 80% of Magento Attribute Value + Conditional Quantity

In Selling Policy, it is set to use 80% of Magento Attribute value with enabled Conditional Quantity.

The Magento Attribute has values 9 and 5 in Child Products. In our case, Magento Attribute is “QTY”, but you can select any other appropriate custom Attribute.

Begin with calculating the quantity of each Child Product based on QTY Percentage:

Fitball: 9 (Attribute value) x 80% (QTY Percentage) = 7,2 ~ 7. But mind that Max QTY to Be Listed is 5.

Pump: 5 x 80% = 4

Now let’s calculate the sum of quantities of Child Products: 5+4 = 9

The item will be listed on the Channel with 9 available pieces.

Note

For eBay: In case the Ignore Variations option is enabled, the QTY listed on the Channel will be taken from the Magento Attribute value of the Parent Product multiplied by QTY Percentage.

Case 7. Ignore Variations option Enabled (for eBay only)

In Selling Policy, it is set to use 100% of Product Quantity with the enabled Ignore Variations option.

If you enable the Ignore Variations option, a Grouped Product will be listed as a Simple Product on eBay.

To calculate the available QTY of such a product, you need to sum up the quantity of Child Products: 25 + 17 = 42.

The item will be listed on the Channel with 42 available pieces but without variations.
