Multiple Products in Woomelly for WordPress
In this article, we will discuss the multiple products feature in Woomelly for WordPress. This option is primarily used when a product in WooCommerce is variable, but each variant has a different price in the WooCommerce store. It’s important to note that Mercado Libre does not allow different prices for its variants (there must always be a single price). Therefore, the seller is compelled to create a separate listing on Mercado Libre for each existing variant in the WooCommerce product.
Setting up Multiple Products in Woomelly for WordPress
1. Activate the independent variables option
This field can be found in the connection template. It’s important to mention that this only applies to categories where the use of two (2) variations (variants) in Mercado Libre isn’t mandatory. For instance:
- A listing on Mercado Libre that requires loading variants (sizes, color, etc.) is not eligible to be a multiple product.
- A listing on Mercado Libre that demands loading one (1) variant, for example, “Color” can be a multiple product. However, each variant (color) must be loaded directly in each variation of the WooCommerce product.
Also, the products in WooCommerce should be variable and have the variations preloaded.
2. Synchronize from WooCommerce to Mercado Libre
Upon executing this synchronization, separate listings will be created on Mercado Libre for each variation of your WooCommerce product. The data loaded in your variations (e.g., price, stock, custom title, status, etc.) will be retained, and other details will be sourced from the variable product, like the technical data sheet, listing type, images, among others.
It’s not necessary to access each variant when working with this option. You should only do it if you need to modify the title, load a variant (for example, color), change the statuses and/or the product details. This only applies to synchronizations from WooCommerce to Mercado Libre.
Connect multiple products with existing listings on Mercado Libre
If you want to link multiple products with existing listings on Mercado Libre, it’s recommended to follow these steps:
Keep in mind that the trend on Mercado Libre is to remove simple listings and have all of them with variations (variants). Therefore, it’s advisable to carefully assess this structure before starting to use it, as reverting a multiple product will require technical support assistance.
