In order to transfer the "Variant Products" from QuickBooks to Xcart5 store, you need to configure settings in eCC.
Step :1 Go-to "File>>Configure Store>> Products" and enable option “Do You have Product Variations?”, as highlighted in the picture below :
Step 2: Select the 'Separator' and the 'attributes' you are managing in Quick Books based on sub-items created. The matching criteria will determine how eCC Desktop recognizes a product in the 'online store' and in 'QuickBooks', which should be identical in both places. Parent SKU is the main SKU of the product for the "base" item. Once the changes are made, click on "save" button.
Step 3: Go-to "Dashboard", click on "Product>>Transfer Products", as shown in the picture below :
Step :4 On the "Transfer Products" screen, select the "Transfer to Online store" tab, as highlighted in the picture below :
Select the 'Parent Product', also the other options, Manufacturers and Categories. Enter the Attributes and 'Save' the Product settings to make the product “Ready To Transfer”
Step :5 Click on "Transfer Products" to create the Variant Product on your Xcart5 Store, as highlighted in the picture below :
Identifying product variations (Online Store): Variations are separated by a separator, therefore choose the type of separator that connect the 'parent SKU' to the 'attribute'.
Identifying product variations (QuickBooks): Each product is the variation in the online store
Note : "Child" items when connected to a parent item are connected by a ":", If you have created the variation as a simple item (inventory item) and connected it to the "parent" item in QB, the separators in online store must match the format of QuickBooks. This may require you to modify your online store SKUs.
Step :6 On the 'Dashboard', go to the "Product >> My Products", as shown in the picture below :
Step :7 On the "My Product" screen, select the "Online store Products" tab. Here select the "Child Product" and click on the "Get Product" button, as highlighted in the picture below :
eCC Desktop will see the base product (household).
