Guide to Enter Product Attributes Such as Color and Size

This is a guide on how to enter product attributes such as color and size on WooCommerce, Shopify, Dandomain, Magento 1.x, and Golden Planet, respectively.

After creating a product on your webshop, there may be different variants of the products in some cases. Variants may have different colors or sizes.

It is important to name the two product attributes “farve” or “Color” and “størrelse” or “size” on your webshop.

Name the product attributes as mentioned above so that the Avecdo system can read and understand the values and insert them into the feed correctly.

Once you have entered the values on your webshop, it is important to remember to download your new data into Avecdo.

You can always download the latest data under the “Shop Setting” section in Avecdo.

Click on “fetch data” to ensure that the Avecdo system retrieves the latest data from your webshop.

You can add the product attributes, colors, and sizes by incorporating a custom product attribute.

1.1.1 Click on “Properties” on the left under “item data.”

1.1.2 Choose an attribute from the dropdown menu, and then click “add.”

To create your own, choose “custom properties” and click “add.”

1.2.1 Name the attributes either “farve” or “Color” and “størrelse” or “size.” Then add your values and click “save properties.”

1.2.2 Afterward, add your values. Remember that the values should be separated by | (for example, Green | Blue | Red):

1.2.3 Click on “Save properties.”

1.3 Add the Attributes to the Actual Variant.

To add the newly created product attributes to a variant, click on the “variants” section.

You will find all product variants on the product page itself, where you have the option to edit and add more variants.

3.1.1 Click on the “variants” tab and double-click on the variant groups, for example, size and color, that should be added to the product.
