Per default Exact Online does not work with Variant products.
The stock keeping products are there. But when you sell t-shirts and you want to send the variant product (the parent) with the simple products (the children) you need to set this up in Exact Online in a specific way. When you do this, the T-shirt will be send to the webshop and also all colors and sizes as simple products.
This is the way you can do this:
Create an extra field in Exact Online this way:
then add an extra field
and call it 'IsMainProduct'. This is to create new products as parents.
Create that field as Type 'List' and add the properties Yes and No.
Then create the field where you want to create the product upon, like Colour and Size.
Create those fields with Type 'List' and add your properties. In above example we add colours and sizes.
Then add these fields in the overview to show the fields in the product overview. After this you are able to fill the fields in Exact Online.
Now, the basis setup has been done in Exact Online.
You can create Parent products now. For this just give it a code (product number) and add the extra fields that you are able to see now. When you want this product to set as main product, then set it to Yes. In the parent product keep the field 'linkMainProduct' empty. Also colours and sizes are kept empty. This because you don't really have this product on the shelf, this is only to create a reference.
Then on the child product keep the isMainProduct on 'no' and add the parent product number. So the T-shirt in this example with number 3000dress. This creates the link between the parent and child products. You can add several child products under one parent product. Also fill the other fields like colour and size.
You are ready in Exact Online now! Last step is to set this up in the integration within APIcenter.
For this, go to your product flow in APIcenter and go to Settings.
Then go to Attributes & Features and switch on 'Use attribute mapping table'.
Here we are going to link the fields created in Exact Online with the fields in your other system, in this example we use a webshop system 'CCV Shop'.
Add 2 rows and then on below Exact Online add the added fields in Exact Online, in this example the Colour and Sizes
Then on the other side add the field to map from your other system. Save the mapping table and then Save settings in the bottom of the page.
Now all is set! Variant products are now send correctly to your target system.
