How do I create variations for my product listings?
On the Inventory tab, select Add Products via Upload.
Download the appropriate inventory file template.
Refer to the Valid Values tab in the
template to see what variation themes are available.
Note: If no variation theme is listed, you cannot create a
product with variations in that category.
In the inventory template, create parent and child SKUs.
On the parent item:
Enter values for required fields, including
Leave Parent SKU blank.
Enter a value
for "parent" in Parentage
and enter a valid value in Variation Theme.
Leave Relationship Type blank.
Leave all other non-required fields blank.
For each child item:
Enter values for required fields.
Fill in the Parent SKU field
using the value from the parent's SKU (value
will be the same for all child items).
Enter "child" in Parentage, and
enter "variation" in Relationship Type.
In the Variation Theme field,
enter the same value that you entered for Variation Theme on the parent (value will
be the same for all child items).
Enter values in attribute column(s) related
to the variation theme (for example, if the
variation theme is flavor-size, you must enter
valid values in the "flavor" and "size" fields
for each child item).
Enter values in other optional fields.
