New 2000 variant limit for all or shopify plus exclusive?

Hello

 

The new, 2000 variant limit for product is like a dream coming trough finally but will it be available for all shopify users or exclusive to shopify plus?

Another question, this limit will be raised for certain apps to be installed and to increase current limits or this will be increased without combining extra apps to go over current limit of 100 variants?

Hello

The new 2000 variant limits are planned to be made available to all Shopify Users. Currently the APIs are in developer preview and can only be used by developer stores.

The variant limits will be at a shop level, not at an App level.  Always query what a shop's limits. More information here

I've definitely read that the 2,000 limit is variants of one product and that it will be availbe to all but you'll need the right sort of theme. Also no news on when it will arrive. I typically sell kits for slippers that typically come in 10 sizes, 12 colours, 4 types of sole so I can't wait to see this impletmented!  https://www.shopify.com/editions/winter2024/video/product-merchandising-updates    The issue of only adding a set amount of new variants per day appears to be a side issue.

to piggy back off this - What will rate limits look like for shops with over 50k variations with 1k 

Specifically:

The following Admin API resources, in both GraphQL and REST versions, have an additional throttle that takes effect when a store has 50,000 product variants. After this threshold is reached, no more than 1,000 new variants can be created per day.
https://shopify.dev/docs/api/usage/rate-limits#resource-based-rate-limits

This is very easy to do and most of my customers run in to this issue almost everyday and we have to reference this article to them.

Well so that's not what I was expecting really. I was more like hoping that Single product variant limit will be increased in product catalog rather than daily upload limits? Bit miss-leading to be fair

Is Shopify Aiming to increase product Viariant limit at all

I would like to emphasize the importance of implementing this feature as soon as possible. For our store, not being able to create a product with more than 100 variants is a significant obstacle. So expanding the number of variants to 2000 will attract many such customers.

This is exactly how I understand this change, however I'm bit worried that this is just a hook for now. But at least for me it's most awaited feature - ability to Add Hoodie in 9 different sizes multiplied by over 40 colours

I'm also very curious about this, and glad to know it's not Plus exclusive. Additionally I guess that means the 250 images per product cap will be lifted.

Does anyone know if it's still going to be one image per variant by default? I'm currently getting around this by using an app.

Not sure if this will be lifted but currently I have learned how to work out more images - 1 image per variant is fine, additional images I'm just adding to product itself so customer can scroll the pictures but still it will use the front image as a proof of purchase

How can we implement it in our store using developers profile?
