Merge Products together making one product with Variants

I'm trying to make updates to my site and need to "merge" several products together so that I have one product with Variants.  The Merged Products would be the variants of the "new merged product".

I've tried everything I can think of to accomplish this, but can't seem to find a workable solution.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @All5th,

To help you out, could you share some more info about your products? Tell me about the main product, the ones you want to merge into its variants, and whether these products already have options and variants set up. The more details you can provide, the better I can suggest a solution that fits your situation.

I have several products I need to merge, and in the future I will need to merge several more.
As example of what I need to merge now. I have two Ink Sets (Fusion Grey Wash Set 2 oz & Fusion Grey Wash Set 4 oz). These are currently on Shopify as two separate products - What I need to do is be able to merge them into One product, with Two Variants. - Fusion Grey Wash Set (Being the Main Product) 2 oz Set (As one Variant), 4 oz Set (As second Variant).
As I said, I several that I need to merge & I will have many more in the future, which in some cases will have upwards of 40 - 50 variants potentially, so I just need to figure out how to merge these and create the variants from the individual products.

Hi @All5th,

There are several ways you can go about merging your products 🤗.

One option is to export the products from Shopify to a CSV file, manipulate the data in Excel to consolidate them into a single product, and then import the modified file back into your Shopify store.

Another approach is to create a new product, which we'll call "Fusion Grey Wash Set" as your primary product. You can then use the Easify Product Options app to set up size options for this main product. These size options can be linked directly to your existing "Fusion Grey Wash Set 2 oz" and "Fusion Grey Wash Set 4 oz" products. Here's how you can set it up:

Hi All5th

 

We developed a new app that solves the issue of merging different products into one single product with variants.

I hope it will help you.

So I can check 100 items and merge them with 1 click?

Yes, you're right—merging products with our Merges app involves just a couple of simple steps:

  1. Select up to 100 products you want to merge.
  2. Review the merged product.
  3. Save your new product with variants.

This process ensures you have full control over how your products are merged, allowing you to make any necessary adjustments before finalizing. It’s designed to be intuitive and efficient, helping you merge your products with minimal effort.

Additionally, we are excited to announce that we are currently working on integrating Shopify's new API, which will soon allow the possibility to merge up to 2000 variants into one product.

So is this how you could take multiple framed art prints, combine them as one product to buy (a DFY gallery wall), and create the appropriate mockup. Then when purchased, it automatically sends the entire number of items over to say TeeLaunch, to be produced and shipped?

Hi Rina

For this workflow, a bundle app might be more suitable. Bundle apps allow you to group different products together and sell them as a set, making it easier to manage and fulfill orders.

 

Product merging, on the other hand, is more suited for combining multiple variants of the same product into one. This is useful when you have the same product listed separately and want to consolidate them into a single product listing with multiple variant
