Fashion products are those products with both colors and sizes. Instead of creating multiple products for each variation, you can create one product with multiple colors and sizes.
This saves time when entering data into the system - fashion products appear in the color/size grid or 'line sheet' format when creating Purchase and Sales Orders and Invoices for your customers.
Before you can add in fashion products, make sure that you have set the products module up correctly. To do this:
This will add in a few extra fields to the product details page.
Fashion Products make use of a separate set of data called Size Ranges. Size ranges predetermine a range of sizes for any given product.
Before you can create a fashion product, you will need to create a size range.
To do this:
The fields are as follows:
|Active||Switch this range on or off.|
|Sort||Determines the order of the range in the list.|
|Name||Determine the name of the range, this should be representative of what the range contains.|
|Label||This must be Sizes.|
|Options||Each size in the range will be entered here. Each size should be entered on a new line.|
To pick a very simple example, let's say you buy T-Shirts that come in Small, Medium and Large. You would create range named "S - L", and you would create the following options:
S M L
If you bought a new line of T-Shirts that had an additional extra large size, you would need to create a new range, named "S - XL" with the following options:
S M L XL
You should aim to end up with every possible range that your products are sold in.
Size Range Imports
If you are importing products from a spreadsheet, good news! Size Ranges will be created automatically for you.
Once you have done all of the above, it's time to create a product!
Selecting a size range will change the Stock Control method to Batch. This is because fashion products are stored as batches and must not be changed.
Note that sizes will be created for each product option that you have, so you can have multiple colors as product options, with multiple sizes.
When you sell this product, a size color grid will appear - see Creating a Sales Order for Fashion Products.
We really appreciate your feedback.
