The Shopify 100 variant limit is really affecting me to the point I may need to look for another platform

 

I need to increase the colour options available.  I attached a screenshot to show what I mean 

 

How can I do this?

There apps that workaround the limitation by just creating new products, search "variant limit" on the app store. Keep in mind to test how this may impact reporting,inventory, or fulfillment,etc 

 

If the colors do not affect prices, or skus you may be able to use a personalization app, or do a theme customization to collect product information passing one of the options through checkout to the orders as text.

https://community.shopify.com/c/shopify-design/product-pages-get-customization-information-for-produ...

 

A DIY alternative is flatten your products* by not trying to cram all variants into a product limitation. Where you either

A) create individual products that represent one options value and the other attributes as options i.e. a /products/canvas-shirt only has a colors option.

B) create a product for each unique option-combination /products/canvas-pink-large, /products/supplex-orange etc.

Then for the online-sales channel use advanced theme customizations to present them as a single product where "variants" are selected like normal.

Again keeping in mind testing such a process.

 

Good Hunting.

 

*aka flat product model aka product family, individuated products, standalone products, variantless products, etc.

Hi @Materialmagic ,
I understand how frustrating it can be to face limitations in the number of variants on Shopify. To increase the number of variants available, There are several third-party apps available on the Shopify App Store that can help you overcome this limitation. You can consider Bold Product Options is another highly rated app that provides advanced customization options for your products. It enables you to create unlimited options, including swatches, file uploads, and conditional logic.
Hope it helps! 
Cheers,
Garcia

This app seemed like it would work but as I need the picture to show beside the relevant selection i can't justify the cost per month

I'll keep looking

Shopify recently announced that they're working on APIs to support more than 100 variants: https://www.shopify.com/editions/summer2023?utm_campaign=Summer23Edition-Amplify&itcat=partner-dash&...

 

I'm assuming this will be made availabe on the Shopify Admin at some point as well, though there's currently no timeline when it will be released or what the new limit will be.

Hi @Materialmagic,

It's important to note that Shopify has certain limitations, restricting us to a maximum of 3 options and 100 variants per product. However, if you find yourself needing more flexibility beyond these constraints, you can explore the use of third-party apps like the Easify Product Options app.

 

This app enables you to create additional options directly within it, completely bypassing Shopify's restrictions. To provide you with more tailored guidance on setting up your options using the app, I would appreciate it if you could share more details about your specific options and any inventory considerations you have in mind. This way, I can offer a more precise recommendation 🤗.

@EasifyApps-Zoe 

Is some instances I need 4 options as well.  I am a fabric printing business so I will give a few examples below.  A big factor is I need the Variant to have a specific picture loaded to each as it reflect the scale size printed

 

EXAMPLE 1:

First Option is Material.  I have 16 bases

 

Second Option is Size.  I have Child, Big Kid & Adult

 

Third Option is Colour.  Due to the above option i can only list 2 colours and i sometimes need up to 10 colours

 

 

 

EMAPLE 2:

First option is Material.  I have 16 bases

 

Second Option I need Lenght.  0.5m and 1m (Not currently able to do this)

 

Third Option is Colour and again need to list upwards of 10 colours

 

Is this possible?

Do you offer products that are readily available or are they made to order?

The setup for your store can vary depending on whether your products are in stock and require inventory management or if they are custom-made on demand.

Let me know your specific situation so that I can provide you with tailored recommendations and guidance.

I actually do both options

I have downloaded your app but some functions don't seem to suit.  Especially the pricing structure I don't want to have to set a base price and then increase the other variants and it being visable to the customer

Could you please share your preferred pricing structure?

Additionally, I'd like to understand how you plan to assign different prices to various combinations of options.

Shopify announced an upcoming increase to the 100 variant limit a few months ago. Have they given any update on when this increase will occur?
