How to create Parent Item and define Attributes in x2x GP Shopify Integration

Shopify store allows defining two types of products, simple and the one having an option with their variants like shirts in different colors and sizes. To comply with the product format of an eCommerce platform, x2x GP – Shopify integration introduces a capability to create parent items and assign them to child items. Parent item is similar to the Shopify product having options. First, we define variants or attributes then at the time of parent item creation assign the variants to them. x2x Integration provides an interface to define variants. Write the name in the description and save it.

The new variant will appear in the list, the list contains all the available or already defined variants in the system. Define variants according to the product catalog.

Now define the values for the created variants by selecting them from the list.

After creating the variants and defining their values, the next step is to create a parent product and associate respective variants to it. The interface is available in x2x GP – Shopify integration to create a parent item. In a parent, define its name, variants associated with the product, and the respective values of variants. For instance, in the below example, the shirt has color and size variants, furthermore, the shirt will be available in two colors. Similarly, define the values for another variant. This way combinations will be created for the product using the defined values in a parent item.

The parent-child item feature in x2x GP – Shopify integration is user-friendly and time-saving. This way products created in GP will directly integrate with the Shopify store without any dual effort.
