Default Assigning "stock" size, color and design variants to multiple products

Hi,
I'm considering your cart but I'm having a problem configuring it that way I wan. I wonder if you could help me solve this little problem.

In a cart full of shoes:

Color:
I have 4 colors that are available through the entire range (600 items) and 5 colors available on a only about 40 shoes.

Size:
I have 10 sizes that are available on the entire range and 3 additional sizes available on just 16 pairs of shoes.

Design Variant:
On a selection of about 50 shoes I have three design variants.

My question is how can I define these option froups once and assign them to the products in my cart. The only way I've seen this possible is to create a new option group for each product and this makes me think either you or I am missing something.

The options groups I need are:

Choose a color:
Color 1
Color 2
Color 3
Color 4


Choose your color:
Color 1
Color 2
Color 3
Color 4
Color 5

What Size:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10

Choose a Size:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13

Style:
Lace up
Velcro
Slip on

Ideally I don't want to create all of these groups for each of the 600+ products. I would like to define them once and select which products have which groups.

Please help

Maree,

Admin back-end -> Catalog -> Products -> enable "Search-and-modify" option -> locate products you need by setting search criterias -> go to "In this section" on the right hand side and click "Product options".

http://help.qtmsoft.com/index.php?title=X-Cart:FAQs#How_to_edit_multiple_products_at_once.3F

This way you can add product options to multiple products at a time.

Another option is to use this Global Product Options mod: http://www.bcsengineering.com/store/global_product-options-for-x-cart.html

Highly recommend gb2world's advice.

If you do decide to set up all those variants, I'd suggest you do just a few variants, and then set up inventory on those variants before going any farther.

Might save several hours of your life.

Sounds like a job for the X-Cart Product Configurator might be able to help with. I haven't used it myself, but from what I understand for products with more than two options, it would be a good fit. More info on the X-Cart Features description page for X-Cart Product Configurator.
