Hi,

We have download a .xml from the Hikashop Google products plugin:
www.hikashop.com/support/documentation/8...google-products.html

But it looks like only the main products are exported and not the Variants?
But the ​​product specification are different per variant so we can't give a GTIN or MPN from the main product because that depends on which variant they choose. For example if you sell paint in 120ml, 250ml and 1000ml you can only add one product to Google Merchant but the main product have no product specification because that is present with the variants. Also the price depends on the variant. And cheapest or most expensive price is not always the default variant. So it becomes difficult to send the correct specifications.

I see that the are some fields for Age group, Gender, Sice, Color but they are only for the main products. And if you create a custom field for GTIN only the main-product data will be captured and not the one from the variant.

So it would be nice if the variant will also be exported just like the display of the variants works in Hikashop.
So the data of the variants is used for export and where no value is entered for the variant, the field of the main product is used.

Is this something that can be made possible? :)

Kind regards,
Lumiga

Hi,

It would be really complex to add to the plugin. Basically, it would require completely rewritting it.
Here is a thread were I talked about this and why we didn't work on that so far:
