I sell a line of paper napkins from Caspari and they have 3 sizes with about 30 patterns. Would you suggest making one product for each size and then doing each pattern as a variant? I just assumed having more products would be better but would it not effect google shopping ads and merchant? Each pattern and size has its own registered barcode so would it still be searchable since it’s listed in its variant?
In your situation, it would be better to create 30 products with a 3-size variant for each. Its more searchable and overall it will be just fine for Google Shopping. The goal is to make products easily available.
Hope the answer helps!
I agree with @Nick_Marketing create a listing for each pattern, then add the size as variants.
