Combine separate size variants imported from Faire into one item with size options?

I have some imported products from Faire with different sizes that show up in Shopify as separate items under 'products.' For example, there are four sizes of these rings. I think it would be better to have a dropdown with the size variants than as separate products. Is there a best practice for doing this? For these rings, I have sizes 5, 6, 7, and 8 listed separately. Would I add variants (6, 7, 😎 to the size 5 item ('add variant')? If so, what do I do with those three separate items in the products after doing that? Do they stay as 'active'? I'm just hoping to do this right so I don't have inventory issues later. Thanks for your help!

Hi, @SB_540 

Thanks for posting to the Forums.

Currently, there isn't a way to combine products that have already been imported. The best thing to do would be to manually add these variants to a parent product. You can do this manually, or via a CSV file

Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with the way Faire imports products. Are you able to combine the products before import? If so, that would be your easiest option.
