I think I got it around tonight (I mean who knows ! next phase, I may realize that it was all just smoke
" The items they make are "made to order" with many options to choose from. So, one product could have hundreds of combinations depending how the buyer wants to configure the product."
Ok you may well want to go without variation..but that means you would keep working with options ?
On my side , I have completely ignored options (for now) and I am a bit worrie this comes back as a problem later on .
So it took me almost 10 days to understand variations (not sure though) takestock advice were actually very good. From there i have just gotten new problems, but in the end, I did find a way
I have wrote each steps on a paper (that was not smart)
I Will copy it on my computer anyway and will send it , for you to look at
You may as well, not be impressed , but we never know !
I Have created severals precise groups to apply directly to categories.
Frame size :
Frame, pictures , mirror etc ..
side table (With exact mensuration for each size in the description )
I feel you, i am pretty sure my vendor wont be tech savvy that way.
And i am not onto the shipping side yet.
But if what i found works for you, then with just simple words , it should be alright for them to understand too, but its clearly a bit crazy
by the way , 1000 vendors is worth a congrats !!
