Please help! I very disappointed in the response from Shopify to this because I think this is a huge flaw that this isn’t an option. I am in my trial phase and putting tons of time in my store to see if I can make it do what I want before I subscribe and launch it.
I have two variants, color and size, that apply to 99% of my items. To me the variants should be master items that you should be easily able to can and apply them across the board to your items. Today I realized I needed to add a color. After talking to support, I was told although this is a common request, you can’t do this. I was shocked. Basically he suggested downloading an app that may be free or pay to try to do this. I think this is something that isn’t an outrageous ask and this would be useful to many people. Likewise I also asked if there was a way to temporarily discontinue a color because it was unavailable. This again would be the same situation, but in reverse to apply across the board.
