Learn how to add new product variants to existing Wix products

Updated over a week ago

After a product has been exported to Wix it's very simple to manage it (updating print files or the Inkthreadable product it's linked to, for example) but adding new variants to your product works in a slightly different way. You'll first need to add the new variants in your Wix admin panel.

To get started, log in to your Wix store and head to your Products page.

Click on the name of the product you'd like to add new variants for. We're going to add a new colour to the 'Variant Artwork' product shown above. Click the product you'd like to add a variant to, scroll down and then click 'Edit Option' on the Colour row.

Enter the new colour into the 'Choices' option field and hit enter, then Apply, and Save to keep this change on your product.

This will add the new colour as a variant for these sizes. You'll notice, however, that these new variants don't have a mockup attached to them, nor will there be a mockup uploaded to the Images box that represents your new variants.

Before adding a new mockup image to your product page we'll first link the new variants to their Inkthreadable product equivalents. It's best to do this before anything else so it's not forgotten - as it stands the Pink colour variant for this product is not linked, so any orders placed for these variants will not be passed through to Inkthreadable.

Managing your linked Wix products

Stay signed in to your Wix dashboard, head to the Inkthreadable website and click the Link Products button.

The Variant Artwork product was fully linked, but since having a new colour variant added the progress bar has dropped to about 67% and has changed from green to orange. This indicates the product has some variants which aren't linked. Click the Edit button.

Since you've already linked some products by this stage you'll likely be very familiar with this page. This is where we link Wix product variants to their Inkthreadable product equivalents. As you scroll down the page you'll see your new variants are un-checked and not linked to any Inkthreadable variants. Check each of these variants in turn and assign them to the correct colour and size (and don't forget to add your brand labels or alternate print files).

Since a pink design won't look quite right on a pink t-shirt we're using a different print file for this variant. To add a different print file, click the Upload file button and select the print file you'd like us to use instead of the one already assigned to the product. You'll need to do this for each size variant of the new colour, so in our case, the file needs to be uploaded four times (for Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large).

Don't forget to click the Save button before leaving this page or your changes won't be applied.

The Variant Artwork is now completely linked again - the progress bar is now full and green. However, there's one final step: adding a product mock for the new variant.

Adding a product mockup to your new Wix product variant

The first step here is to download the product mockup for your new variant. The process for this is detailed in another Help Centre article so we won't repeat it here.

Once your mockup is saved to your computer you can upload it to your Wix product page. Navigate back to the product page you edited earlier (when you added the new colour variant).

Under the Images box, click the Add Images link.

Select your mockup and upload it. Once completed it'll appear in your Images panel alongside the images previously uploaded. You can then assign this to your new product variant.

Scroll down to the Product Options box, and click Edit Connected Images. A new window will prompt you to select the image you'd like to assign to the variants.

Select the image uploaded recently next to the correct variant you'd like to add it to.

Once you've selected the image, hit Apply and then Save to keep the changes.

Your Wix product will now have a new variant that's both fully linked to your Inkthreadable account and has a product mockup assigned that reflects the colour and print of the garment.
