You can create different variations for products with accordance to their product attributes on SHOPLINE. 

There can be two variations maximum. Color and size are preset options but you are free to customize your own variation type. Having said variation type cannot exceed 2 items, the number within each variation type is not the case. To be concrete, for example, there can be 5 colors for a product with 5 different sizings.

This article is going to describe the steps of setting up product variations.
 

Step 1. Setting up product variations

Login SHOPLINE admin panel >> Go to “My Products” >> Click "Add" button >> Click “Variations” tab

❗️Please notice:

Once the "Variations" toggle is ON, when checking out at storefront,  it will calculate delivery fee according to variation's own weight, NOT using weight of the main product.

 

 

Step 3: Set variation name

Choose the variation, either “Color”“Size” or create a “Custom” one > Input the “Options” at the box next to the variation name

Step 7: Variants Sorting

You can drag and drop the variants in the input field to sort the variants' orders.
It will show a + mark to let you drag and drop the options on the variant input field, and when you move the options, the variation table will be updated at the same time. 
After you update the product, the new sorting will be applied to storefront immediately.
