I'm setting up my first Shopify webshop now and I encounter this issue.
I'm a photographer and I'm going to sell my images in different sizes and different carriers, like paper print, canvas, dibond and passe-partout frame. So, I use the variants. It's great to be able to assign a different image for each variant, but I like this to happen with the description as well. Now the description stays the same for each different variant.
In the image attached you see that in the description I have put the information about the paper print, the canvas, dibond, etc. all in one long read. Which is not what I want.
Can someone help me out with this? I check other topics, but at first sight I can't find a solution. I'm using the theme Debut. I have minor, but some, coding experience.
Thanks! Stay safe & strong these days.
Check out this post everything explained very well here.
A new solution is here in 2021
Please check this app - https://apps.shopify.com/variants-description
@kurtvandeweerdt I've started that post that @Guleria is mentioning.
This is something that can be done with some custom coding.
It is apparently an easy implementation but unfortunately, it will not scale.
It will work but, you can not make this work nicely with many products.
After 5 years I've built an app that allows you to easily set custom unique descriptions to product variants.
Looks like Aakash beat me to it, but anyway here is my application: https://apps.shopify.com/dynamic-variant-description
You can see some demo products here: https://bit.ly/3qAbhrv, use password foo if asked.
Hope it helps
@natashadisante, Can you please advise how to the first part of your comment: "The only way to do this natively in Shopify is to create a metafield for your variants, and store the description there. You can then easily insert the metafield into your liquid pages."
Am trying to find a way to do this with no luck. And I will be using a different theme starting next year, so I need a solution that works for all themes and use Variant.Metafields to dispaly different time to dispatch fields.
IF you can support in coding this or if you can refer someone, please let me know.
