Splitting variants

If a product has more than one variant, then you can split each variant into an individual product. For example, if a product has three color variants, then you can convert each color variant into an individual product that you can sell in your store.


  1. Add the product that you want to split to your import list.

  2. From your import list, find the product that you want to split, and click More Actions > Split Product.

  3. Select how you want to split your products. For example, if a product has both color and size variants, then select Color to split it into individual products based on color.

  4. Click Split to Products.

When you create a new product, unused variants are disabled instead of deleted. You can enable a specific variant any time after you have split the product.
