Variations and attributes on JET
Users can group together products. For example when they have a shirt in two different colors, they have it listed in our panel as two separate items, each with unique title and SKU. To link them together, so that they are listed on a marketplace as one item with an option to chose for users (a drop down menu with color) merchants must use grouping.
To make it look like this on JET:
Sellers needs to set up products in GeekSeller panel this way:
Common mistake: one important thing to emphasize here is that each product from a group must have the same brand, same category and the same set of variations. You cannot submit variations in which for example one SKU has a color and another do not.
JET variations vs. Amazon and Walmart
***When setting up variations all titles must be the same. The only difference in the products is the attributes. You do not want to put Attributes in the titles*****
Walmart, Jet and Amazon have a different way of linking variations and creating child / parent relationships between products.
Amazon expects to see a parent products to be an independent entry which is not seen to buyer, but which holds all children together
Jet needs to see only sellable products, and one of them must be selected as a parent product. Please note, a parent product cannot have anything provided in a parent column. Notice there is no ABC SKU here.
Walmart is asking for GroupID, which has to be a unique value of letters and numbers, not SKU. Please note Walmart also wants to see only SKUs which are sellable. Notice there is no ABC SKU here.
Creating variations on JET
Jet works here slightly different than in other marketplaces. Each variation is a separate SKU. The Parent is the first product displayed on the Product Detail Page. It does not have any value assigned in Parent SKU column. Its children have this Parent SKU located in Parent SKU column. This way, the Parent SKU links all variations together.
