Hi Alex, thanks for all the great tip & tricks you’ve been providing us all with. I look forward to enjoying your “Webflow to Shopify full export” tutorial.
Meanwhile, just wanted to ask you one thing on this subject. How would you go about creating variable products using Webflow CMS?
I mean, let’s say we have the following standard scenario:
- Product (e.g. XYZ)
- Collection: (e.g. Fall / Winter 2016)
- Color: White
- Size: Small
On Webflow’s CMS I’d just create the following collection pages:
(e.g. Fall / Winter 2016; Spring / Summer 2016, etc.)
A collection of all the single products on sale.
The Products collection would then contain a single reference field which I’d use to reference each single product back to a given Collection (e.g. Product XYZ from Fall / Winter 2016 Collection ).
Assuming the above is correct (or maybe it is not - if so please let me know), how should I go about adding the “Color” and “Sizes” fields to the Product collection?
I’m under the impression the best would be for me to create further two collections as follows:
Then I’d go back to my PRODUCTS COLLECTION and reference each product back to these two newly created collections using the following fields (i.e. on the single Product page within the Product Collection):
Type of field: Single Reference (assuming shoes XYZ would only have one main color)
Type of field: Multi-Reference (assuming shoes XYZ would come in 4 different sizes)
Is the above correct?
Thanks a lot in advance.
