two stock items but same product


We sell posters, both framed and unframed. 
So I have created two stock items under a variation group which is working well.

The problem I have is that if an order comes in for a framed poster, we simply frame the unframed stock item.

So both products need to share the same stock level.

If I sell one, then it needs to be deducted from the stock level of both.

Any ideas how I can do this in linnworks please?


This can be done by creating Composite items in Linnworks. One of your items will be a parent SKU (framed poster) which consists of 1 child SKU (unframed poster). When an order comes for a child item, then stock level of a parent is re-calculated. 

Please see this documentation about creating composites:

Best regards,
