If you offer different options for an item within the same listing, you can add those options as variations. You can offer up to two types of variations for each listing.
For example, if you sell a dress with different sizes and colours, you can specify these options in that dress listing’s variations.
You can add variations for up to two item attributes while creating or editing a listing:
To change the order of your options, click Edit and drag the option to the preferred order. Then click Save Product.
The price you set for each option is the total price for each version of the item, not an additional cost.
For measurement variations, such as length or size, choose a sizing scale. Once you select a unit of measurement, specify the options you offer.
For variations without suggested options, or variations you have added yourself, you can provide your own options.
You can create a new variation type by clicking Create a new variation from the Add or Edit variations popup window. However, buyers won’t be able to filter their Osbisy search results based on custom variations.
Each variation will be shown on the listing page if it has an available quantity.
To hide a variation:
If you set the quantity for one of your options to “0”, it will appear on the listing page as Sold out.
If this listing varies on a visible attribute, such as colour, you can add photos to show that variation.
To add photos for your variations:
Your photos will appear next to the variations you linked them to.
When a buyer selects a variation, the photo you linked will appear on the listing page.
If you have variations on a listing, buyers must select the options they want before adding your item to their cart.
If a buyer happened to add your item to their basket before you added variations to the item, they won’t be prompted to select your options when they check out.
When a buyer purchases from you, you’ll see the variations they selected in your Sold Orders, receipts, and transaction notification emails.
Using Osbisy, shoppers can request an email notification for when a sold out item is back in stock. Learn more about restock requests.
If you preview a listing with variations, you may see the error “Listing preview doesn’t accurately reflect price and quantity on variations”. This is normal, and you’ll see the variations and price differences you added when you publish your listing.
