    With reference to the above, I came across this site today which handles it in the manner I suggested which IMO gives a the user a really good UX (especially as it keeps the other thumbnails below so you can access those whilst in the zoom state without having to go back a level): https://www.thesweetstore.co.uk/collections/boxes-hampers/products/create-your-own-pick-mix-hamper-20-fillings

    Another feature I feel should be implemented which is more of a core feature than an addon is to tell the buyer if we do not have enough stock to fulfil the order at the basket/checkout stage. Currently if someone wants to buy 3 of something and we only have 2, the website will take the order and will simply say 'In Stock'.

    We don't show and don't want to show the physical level of stock but it still shouldn't mislead the customer. We have to manually advise customers, as from their point of view, the order is being shipped immediately. Sounds more like a bug than a feature now I read it back!

    Maybe raise the issue with support via a call/email as that definitely doesn't sound right!!

    In Settings / Products you have the option to prevent backorders which in your example would prevent the customer from being able to order 3 units, they would only be able to order 2 units, please see the screenshot of my settings. Not sure if that solves your problem or not.

    General - Settings - Product
    Quantity in stock description -> Phrase only.
    As far as I'm aware this should then simply say, "In Stock" when available, or whatever you have in the langauge manager.

    Below this are choices for what to do when out of stock (ie, "prevent Back Orders).

    We rely heavily on customers backordering goods with us so don't want to set the option to prevent backorders. It was more having the option to advise a customer 'we don't have enough of this item in stock to fulfil your order for immediate dispatch, please continue to backorder or revise quantity' instead of 'In Stock' when some of the goods are not.

    You could use the low Low stock threshold field in the product manager (under values), then:

    General - Settings - Product
    Quantity in stock description -> Phrase and low stock quantity

    You would then show the actual quantity for the product but only if it falls below the low stock threshold that you have set. You can then go into the language manager (if you wish) and adjust the wording to say something like "2 in stock now, additional items will be backordered".

    I know that not exactly what you want but I think it's as close as you can get without BP making an update.

    Just on the feature requests, I would like have the option for a mix and match bundle option, i.e. we have a gift box bundle, select 3 t-shirt designs from these 6 design options
