How To

Using Variation Listings on Jet

Imagine that a customer searches the Clothing category on Jet for a T-shirt and finds ten products. Each shirt comes in six sizes and two colors, which means that there are twelve unique size and color combinations for each T-shirt. Rather than display all 12 products, Jet groups similar products using parent/child relationships and displays only one item from each group at a time.

Please note: Not all categories support parent/child relationships, and only specific ones are accepted. Reference the Jet Taxonomy file to see if variations are supported. To determine if there are variation attributes for your category, use the Varying Attributes tab. All children in a grouping must be assigned to the same Jet Category ID.

Jet currently supports up to two varying attributes per grouping (for example, some categories to vary by Size, Color, or both Size and Color). If children vary by more than 2 attributes, they will error and not list to Jet.com.

 

Prerequisites


You should be familiar with the following topics before continuing:

When submitting your variations to Jet you will want to be sure to include the following information on your Parent Items:

  • Item Title – Make your title generic and avoid referencing any of your varying attributes.
  • SKU – Use the word "Parent" in your SKU name (This helps with organization).
  • Description – Make your description generic and avoid referencing any of your varying attributes.
  • Classification – If using classifications with your children SKUs be sure to select the same classification.

Images and Bullets are pulled from the Children. These details will toggle on the listing page on Jet when an item is selected. Make sure this data is available in your child items.
