Channel-specific values for Select type fields

Modified on Tue, 21 Jan 2020 at 08:55 AM

In some cases, the same product value has to appear differently on different channels. For example

  1. Ring size "5.5" would be "5.5" on eBay, while Etsy expects "5 1/2"
  2. Gender "Women" on Amazon's Gender field is "Women" , while Walmart expects "Female"

To avoid multiple fields with similar information for each channel (such as Gender-Amazon and Gender-Walmart), you can set the matching channel value for each value in the Select type fields. This allows you to store the information once, and Valigara will use the channel-related value while working with the external channel.

For each value, select 1 of the 2 options:

  • Check "Same value for all channels" - in this case, the main value is used to work with each channel
    • f.i. Ring size "5" is the same on all channels
  • Uncheck "Same value for all channels" - in this case, you will be able to define individual value for each channel. 
    • f.i., for the Chain color "Black" , Etsy value will be Noir, Shopify value - Black Sky, Sears - Black etc...
    • If the channel-related value is left empty, no value will be sent to the channel
