BigCommerce variations settings

Modified on Tue, 31 Aug 2021 at 05:41 PM

Variations settings allow combining multiple products in Valigara into one product in the BigCommerce-based website.

Different types of jewelry require different combinations of variations. For the fashion ring, the right variations would be the ring size and the stone color, for the diamond ring - the ring size, gold color and the central stone weight, and for the chain - the gold purity and the chain length.

Each variation group defines the unique combination of fields. After defining the variation groups, each product in the catalog is related to the specific group, and the variations on the BigCommerce website are generated accordingly.

Create variation group

Set up variation group 

  • Condition - defines what products will be assigned to the specific variation group. During the integration (post-update), BigCommerce listings are being created according to the Variation group of the published product.
    • Select Condition field and Value.
    • Condition can be: model type, gemstone type, product price and any other product field. 
    • It is possible to set more than 1 condition for the specific variation, f.i. the combination: Model type=ring, Gemstone 1 type = Diamond

  • Variations
    • BigCommerce Attribute - give a name of the variable field, displayed in the BigCommerce listing
    • Field - define the Valigara field/s, from which the data will be taken
      • Values
        • All - sends all values contained in the selected Field
        • Specific values - limit and send only specific values
    • Matching field 
      • define Fields by which values the posted items will be matched
      • only the items with the same matching field value will be added as the variations of the posted product

  • Use only products related to website as variations:
           If checked: To create variations Valigara use only products assigned to the website 
           (product field "On  BigCommerce").
