How to Add Multiple Product Variants in bulk when Listing a New Product?

I am looking for a way to add multiple variants when I add a new product. Currently I am listing Baseball card box breaks that I sell per team so I have to list all 30 of the MLB teams as variants each time I list a new product or box of baseball cards. Is there a way to automatically add all 30 teams as variants or do it in bulk so I don't have to manually list all 30 each time I list a new product? I am using the Dawn theme.

This is an accepted solution.

Either make an unpublished product that's prefilled and used like a template that you then duplicate anytime you need a new product.

 

Or use CSVs to import product data in bulk

If it's a reoccurring business process it's healthier to make it not about shopify, invest in building a platform agnostic data process.

Get some formulas, macros or templates made to use in excel or google-sheets,  it will save a lot of time.

 

There's also automation apps like mesa, mechanic to try and build something that creates&fills in variant data from preset-info. mechanic is scripting based for example fill in SKUS: https://tasks.mechanic.dev/auto-generate-skus 

Currently there is no variant-editing actions in shopify-flow though it's possible through advanced work to use the send-http-request action to edit variants.

Seems you are looking the bundle functionality which will add all the product at once on pressing of add to cart.

 

This can be done by custom coding in your theme.

 

Do you understand code and will these variant id will be fixed for all the product?
