How do I add a variation of a product like size or colour?

You can add a variation of a product by adding another SKU. A SKU (stock keeping unit) is a unique identifier for a specific product. For example, if you have a pendant, which comes in 3 different colours, it will have three different SKUs. With regards to your catalogue, you can display a product and it’s variations in the same product space. Additional SKUs of a specific product appear in the drop down menu to allow your customer to view the pendant in each colour. An individual photo/image can be assigned to each one.

You can add another Sku at any time, whether that be when you add a new product or at a later stage.

  1. Click on ‘Add Sku’, which is located at the foot of the page above the ‘Update’ button. This will open an identical Sku box. You can then enter the relevant information exactly as you would if you were adding a product.
  2. Type in the name of your product. This is the name that will be seen by your customers in the dropdown menu. It’s a good idea to include a descriptive word such as the colour to differentiate the various Skus.
  3. Type in the stock code.
  4. Type in the product quantity that you are allocating to your online stock in the ‘Add stock inventory’ box.
  5. If you wish you can add a minimum order quantity. This is designed for small monetary unit products. For example if a product is 0.10p you may want to allocate a minimum order quantity. This is entirely up to you. If you do not wish to do this leave the minimum order quantity as 1.
  6. To enter the price, click on the ‘Full price’ box, highlight the 0.0 and replace this with the actual price.
  7. You can add an offer price (if applicable) in the same way.
  8. To add a photo of your product, click on the ‘Browse’ button to the right of ‘Image’ in the Skus box. When you click on this it will take you your computer.
  9. Go to the photo you would like to use for the product. Click on the ‘Open’ button at the bottom right of the window. You will now see the name of the file to the right of the first ‘Browse‘ button within the Sku box on the ‘Editing product’ page.
  10. To accept the additional Sku and update the product, click on the ‘Update’ button under the Sku box.
  11. If do not want to proceed, click ‘Back’ at the foot of the page.
  12. Repeat this process for any additional Skus required.
