Creating Parent/Child items from ERP – a big challenge

eCommerce site usually displays items as a Parent/child or Configurable product. This gives customers an option to choose the variant of that item. For example, a shirt with five colors and five sizes is shown as one item on the eCommerce site allowing the visitor to select the sizes and colors they want.

There are SKUs under one item on the eCommerce site. Furthermore, these individual SKUs may have the same or different prices, descriptions, and quantities in an ERP solution. If those variants are uploaded on the eCommerce site without combining them under a Parent item, they will show up as different products, not as one product with multiple color and size options.

How x2x eCommerce handles this requirement

x2x eCommerce Dynamics 365 Business Central (BC) and Shopify integration integrate the existing entities (items, prices, customers) between the two systems. It also adds new functionality in Business Central to create Parent/Child items on the Shopify site.
