Maximum quantity possible for kits and bundles (auto-assembly)

Please add one more parameter to product availability report - maximum quantity possible for auto-assembled items.

For sales channels there should be an option to choose to update quantities based on available quantity or based on calculated maximum possible availability. So this should resolve the issue with 0 quantities for bundles.

This feature is implemented and will be rolled out as part of big update scheduled to happen after new year holidays. available quantity for kits will be shown on drop down in sale form, in product availability and will be synced to any eCommerce and POS channels integrated whenever any component's quantity change automatically.

This is also important for us. We use bundles to sell packs to different customers types and this would give visibility for the sales team and additional sales channels (Shopify for example - through the API).

Running into many clients that need/want this for the kits that they sell.

Really really need this feature. Please implement ASAP. I saw there was a commitment in this thread to schedule this feature for development but it does not appear on the development roadmap:

Please advise.



This would be critical for us signing up for your service. Thanks!

I would like to be notified if and when this feature is implemented, as I sell many bundles and multi-packs and do not want to manage them all manually. This is a deal-breaker for me, so I will continue with the service I'm currently using. Thanks.


once this feature is up and running, we are interested in making the switch over from tradegecko

It looks like this feature is planned to become available with the release this coming weekend!  

Release notes here:

Release notes specific to this feature:

Availability calculations performance improved throughout the system. Potential kit quantity calculations introduced

Stock availability calculations have been enhanced for better performance.
Potential available quantities for kits/assemblies (when Auto-assembly is enabled in Bill of Materials) is now automatically calculated per location in all relevant places and updates integrations when quantity of components changes.



ProductAvailability endpoint now has additional Available field providing info about normal and potential kits products.

We sell printed shirts and we print them on demand so all of our product families, finished goods and basically the 70% of our inventory are "virtual" products created by a parent-child relation to the BOM. We need to keep track of all the stock of the base t-shirts whenever someone buys a printed shirt so having DEAR to update the inventory for these assembled products would be great and the final piece that would make DEAR the perfect inventory management software.
Currently, support has adviced to manually update the inventory quantities for all those products since the system can't do it. And we have like 2000 products like that... :/   

This is also quite a deal breaker for me too. I switched from an inventory management system that did let me manage inventory on bundle packs by taking inventory for say two components from other individual products, meaning I only had to update inventory on the individual product level. I was assured by Dear that this software did this, have now invested A LOT of both time and money to change over only to just be told a differing story now and that none of my bundles which are being auto-built have any inventory management without me having to manually enter them in the bundles.

To me, this defeats the purpose of even having a bundle that is autobuilt from other components surely?!

Had I knows this, I wouldn't have changed from my existing system which was working.
Can someone please advise how far off approx a fix to rectify this might be?


Yes please to this! We sell a product that's a collection of other products. Updating the inventory of the master product based on the availability of the child products would be HUGE :)

Happy to schedule this for development. Just need confirmation from you all subscribed. In the sample below we have two bundles with 2 the same components each.Please let us know how many items available we need to return to the sales channel

Bundle 1 - ?

Bundle 2 - ?


Bundle 1:

Component  1 -  1 item

Component  2 - 1 item


Bundle 2:

Component  1 -  1 item

Component  2 - 1 item


Currently Available :

Component  1 -  10 items

Component  2 - 10 items


Hi, sorry I'm a little bit confused by what you're asking. I DESPERATELY though need this feature, otherwise I'm pretty much spending $200/mth for something my existing website system already does.

In my case, I might have a bundle that is made up of 2 components (component A & B for example). Component A & B are also their own singular product on their own, so if someone buys it as a single product it'll need to deduct that sale from inventory there. But if someone buys the bundle, it'll need to deduct one of each off the inventory/product from component/product A & B each.

Is that what you're meaning?



This is one of our most important requirements, as we break down multi-packs and sell individually and also different quantities as sets with their own SKUs.
Having seen auto-assemble and auto-disassemble, I initially assumed this is what it meant, but no.
This is therefore a deal-breaker and will have to use another system.


In this example, I would include a stock figure of 10 for Bundle 1 and 10 for Bundle two. If 1 x Bundle 1 is sold, then there should be 9 of bundle 1 and 9 of bundle two available. It might also be useful to include in the API callback some new values: OnHand - The total quantity of the product on hand OnHandInventory - The total quantity as inventory items (already assembled) OnHandFromComponents - The total quantity available to be made up from components.
