Product Variants

Some products are available in different variations, such as colour or size. If one or more of your products has variations, you may want to add different prices, codes, quantities or images for each variant. 

Step 1:  Go to the Products->Products menu and select a product you want to add variations to. 

Step 2:  Click on the 'Product Options' tab and select the product option you would like to add. In this case, we will select Color. If you haven't made a product option yet, you can learn to do so here.

Step 3: Open the 'Code & price variants' tab. Check your product option(s) and click "Create Code & Price Variants" to generate variations based on the product options you selected. For each variant, you can:

  • Input inventory quantities
  • Specify list prices
  • Add a unique product code
  • Upload images

Once you have finished creating your variations, click "Save" and you're done! The product listing on your storefront will now reflect the variations you created.

Export / Import

  1. You must create or import products before importing their respective product variants. For example, if you want to create a blue coffee mug variant, you need to have an existing product for coffee mug and a product option for colour. It is not necessary to create all product options prior to import; they can be created when importing.
  2. Fill out the product variant spreadsheet, making sure to complete the necessary fields (explained below). You can download and review a sample import here.
