Printify products as Shopify variants

1 0 3

I’ve had three different developers take a crack at this, and they couldn’t figure it out, but I still think it must be possible. Printify doesn’t allow for custom product variants , only variants native to the item i.e. a shirt that comes in different colors. So you must produce and publish to Shopify separate individual items with the intent of them being variance for the Shopify product. 

What are the steps to get a published prinify product linked as a product variant on Shopify selectable through a color swatch?


thanks for any insight! It’s been a full week trying to get this to work.

Yes please same here, I was able to create the swatch, added the secondary SKUs but orders won't come in on the Printify side, I had to add them manually. #Miami 🙂

Yes, I need to know this as well! It seems a bit crazy if this can't be done. I have 6 patterns/designs that are each separate products and I want to have one listing with the 6 different options/variants. This should be basic functionality. Maybe because Printify doesn't support the custom variant we have to use a 3rd party app?
