Update: Associated Variants

DataFeedWatch Updated by DataFeedWatch

Associated Variants functionality gives merchants a higher degree of control over what types of products they want to filter out from their feeds.

With Associated Variants, you are now able to exclude product variants when a specified percentage of variants goes out of stock, or if certain variant sizes or colors are out of stock.

How to Enable Exclude Associated Variants?

This section is out of date. To find out how to do this, please refer to the article Exclude Associated Variants Available after Item_Group_ID Mapping.
  1. Associated variants are enabled automatically in your shop if your feed was connected from a shopping cart source (e.g. Shopify, Magento, BigCommerce, Volusion, etc.)
  2. Go to the settings and insert the Group ID and Item ID corresponding fields (Optional)
If you have connected your feed from an URL, FTP or uploaded the file from your drive you need to first enable them from your Shop’s settings.
If you are just getting started with DataFeedWatch, the Group ID and Parent ID settings will be available after you have connected your source feed.
  1. Next, go to any shopping channel where you want to start excluding products
  2. Click on Exclude Associated Variants, available from your Include/Exclude products tab

Now, it’s time to start creating the rules for excluding the products.

When and How to Use the Exclude Associated Variants Functionality?
