Linking Products with Variations

Why Linking Products are Important

Your products may have reviews and comments that are very important for SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Importing the same products from two External Systems in Sellbery may duplicate them if their SKUs differ. After uploading these products to External Systems, the duplicated products will be created without reviews and comments. It can downgrade the SEO ranking of your products.

Linking / Relinking Products with Variations to Sellbery Products

To link a product from Export Service to an existing Sellbery product, you need to follow these steps:

Step 1
Go to an Export Service, click the red icon, and then on the "Link to Sellbery product" button.

Step 2
Find a product you want to link to and click a "Link" button.

Step 3

Please pay attention that all variations of your product in the Export Service will be overwritten with variations from the Sellbery product. ‎It cannot be undone.
After step 2, you must confirm that you want to link products.

Use Case

For instance, you sell T-shirts on Shopify with one attribute: color. However, the size attribute has two values: Small and Large.
So, you have two variations for these attributes:

A Sellbery product has two attributes: size and color. The size attribute has two values: Small and Medium. The color attribute has two values: Black and White. There are four possible variations for these attributes:
Small / Black
Small / White
Medium / Black
Medium / White

After linking your Shopify product to the Sellbery product, its variations will be changed to:
Small / Black
Small / White
Medium / Black
Medium / White
