Converting Items to and from Variations

How can I convert my single items to variation items?

Things to note for listing items in variations:

  1. Variation Group ID: This is an unique alphanumeric id provided by seller for grouping items. Since it is only to group products in variations, the same will not be visible for customers. Please note the same group id should not be used again for another group of items which will lead to errors for having same color or size attributes.
  1. Title: The title has to be common for all items to be grouped by color or size. Variation of color or size will be picked from the designated field or from column.
  2. Description: It has to be same across all the items before grouping them as one.
  3. Color: The seller has to select the color of the particular item from the drop down list using UI or in excel templates. There also an option of providing color name of their own choice as Trademark in the field just below the overall color.
