Variations basics

Modified on Sun, 06 Aug 2023 at 09:31 AM

Valigara manages variations in 2 ways

1. Product-based variations are created by combining the information from different products of the same model. 

  • This type of variation is used when each variation has its own characteristics/data. For example, different images, different weights, different pricing, or any other parameter.
  • Another case for product-based variations: when we want to post each variation of the product separately. F.i. if the necklace exists in White gold, Yellow gold, and Rose gold, and all three products need to be posted separately. The variations are created as individual products in the Valigara catalog, and these 3 products will be combined into one listing with variations, on channels.

2. Field-based variations are created using the “Select Variation” fields of the product. 

  • displayingThey allow to display product variations on the channels without creating separate products in Valigara. In this case, all information will be taken from the same product, and the only difference between the variations of the resulting product on the marketplace is the value of the variation. Each variation has its own SKU, which appears in the Variations tab of the product. 
  • For example “ring size” with variation values 5, 6, 7;  or “strap color” with variation values Blue, Green, Red, and Black. In this case ring sizes 5 6 7 have exactly the same information. Different variations do not influence images, don’t have separate stock or other details; and cannot be posted to channels separately. 
  • Users can create as many fields of the “Select Variation” type in the product. This is done in the Additional fields interface. 

The model-based and field-based variation counters appear below the product thumbnail. 

  • Click on the model-based count displays all products built on the same models
  • Click on the field-based count displays the variations tab in the specific product
