shopify - Tracking inventory on Monogrammed Products
So I have wallet that can be monogrammed. In my admin I have 1 product with 2 variants – Not Monogrammed and Monogrammed. The monogrammed product costs $20 more.
My issue is that I have 10 wallets total, but when I have the variants separated like this I have to add inventory for each one.
I need to be able to track these inventories together. I have 10 total wallets, if one is monogrammed I still only have 9 total wallets. Not 10 non-monogrammed and 9 monogrammed left as it would handle it by default.
Is there a way to remedy this? Perhaps with an app? Or perhaps with a different setup, maybe with line item properties? I've found that those don't effect price though.
I found an app that should do what you need, but it costs $7.95/month.

Your monogrammed variant can be set up with inventory_policy:'continue' and keep 0 in stock. Let the non-monogrammed variant track the stock. inventory polity :continue lets customers purchase the monogrammed item.
Then you would probably need to modify your page template so that no purchases can be made if the first variant is out of stock.
