Making Parent-Articles of OXID Variants (non)-Buyable

If you have product catalog that contains many articles with many variants, or variant-combinations, it may be necessary to set the parent-product as non-buyable, because only variants can be purchased.  Classical example, a t-shirt in different colors and sizes.  Unless a color and size is not selected, the product cannot be purchased!

OXID offers a configuration-setting for this purpose which would allow the shop-merchant to set up products with variants as non-purchases.  This setting is applicable shop-wide, and can be found under Master Settings > Core Settings > System > Variants > “Parent” Products can be purchased.
