A product (or parent product) is typically a page on your site that your customers can find in the listings/search pages and navigate to.
A product may have configuration options such as size and colour, which are selected as 'options' on this page, but these child products won’t have their own individual URLs.
We recommend that you pass all products first, and then set the product.is_variant parameter to TRUE for all child products.
Product listings are overridden product fields for individual stores.
These listings allow Ometria to generate localised product information.
For example, a product might cost £45 in the UK store, and €59 in the French store, or it may also have a different URL, image, title, etc.
Product listings only apply to parent products.
Note: Shopify users can only have one listing per account (i.e. per country).
Product variants (or child products) are for shippable SKUs, e.g. a shoe available in 8 sizes would have 1 parent product and 8 variants.
Products, product listings and product variants may be known by different names depending on your ecommerce provider:
|Ometria||Magento (1 and 2)||Shopify|
|Parent product||Configurable product||Parent SKU|
|Product listing||Store listing||Listing|
|Product variant (or child)||Simple product||Child SKU|
Custom integrations may be different again, and vary from client to client.
