Many retailers rely on products with variables, or "variable products" for their stores. A variable product is any product with variables; things like size, color, or style are all popular examples. In this article, we'll talk about how we recommend setting up variable products in Epicor Eagle.
When variable products flow through the integration, the product type is automatically set to "variable", and the variations, or "options" are added to the product. Typically only 1-2 options are used (size and color, generally).
When creating variable products for Epicor Eagle, there are a few things to keep in mind:
- In the Epicor Compass report, all the sub-items for a variable product need to have the same "Parent Style Number", or SKU.
- The item description for each item must be the same, and should not have the size or color appended to the description.
- There must be a size or color present.
- There should be a row in the file for the parent product. This row won't have a size or color option present, but all the other factors are required.
Epicor Eagle's Soft Goods module performs the above automatically.
