How To

Creating a Child SKU

Creating your child items is the third step in the process of configuring your inventory to list in a variation format. To get a full overview of this process please see the Using Variations page. The child SKU serves as the actual product that you will be selling. Each child in the relationship will need to have a unique varying attribute value. For instance if varying by color you cannot have two items with a color value of red. If varying by multiple attributes then each combination must be unique. You may also complete this task in bulk by configuring your inventory for variations via spreadsheet.

If listing variations to eBay you will want to make sure to keep your child descriptions generic and refrain from mentioning any of your varying attribute values. This is because a description will be pulled randomly from one of your child items for the variaiton listing. You do not want a buyer to be reading a description about a blue shirt when they are viewing the red shirt.
