A client with an existing Shopify store connected to their legacy ERP uses variants but they do not wish to utilized Matrix items in Acumatica.  Instead the just want to have each variant as a individual SKU in Shopify.  The Shopify help says to delete the variants and the default.  They want to continue to sell the SKU’s in their store.

 

For example SKU 1234 has ‘’, A , and B as variants and they want to have them as

1234, 1234A, and 1234B as individual SKUs

@dgodsill97 if I understand you right, the problem is that you don’t want to rename one of the variant (default variant) in Shopify. But this is not mandatory, as you can name Template Item differently. In your example (SKU 100 is Granules and 100B is tablets) you can name template item 100Template.

If that does not work, they you can migrate items as a stock items in Acumatica, then run export and export all of them to Shopify. This will create new products for each stock item.

Old product with variants you can simple remove.

They have a legacy ERP (Sage 100) connected to their store.  Each variant, as in Acumatica, is a separate inventory item.  We are upgrading them to Acumatica but they don’t want to have to convert their existing SKU’s to Matrix because it would require changing the ID of the inventory item in Acumatica and the SKU in shopify because the default variant does not have  suffix.  For example, SKU 100 is Granules and 100B is tablets.  They are using a space as the variant so they would have to rename 100 to 100G. It’s complicated😀

@dgodsill97 if they don’t use matrix items, how do they manage variants in Acumatica now? Are these variants stored as stock items?
