A little detail about each Apparel attribute:


Colour: The colour of the actual item or variant, if a combined colour is needed then this should be listed like; Black / Green


Gender: This is predefined to 'male', 'female' and 'unisex', please note this is lowercase characters for loading via database tools.


Age: This is predefined to 'adult' and 'kids', please note this is lowercase character for loading via database tools.


Material: The material of the actual item or variant, i.e. Cotton - always be consistent with your naming.


Pattern: The pattern of the actual item or variant, i.e. Striped - always be consistent with your naming.


Size: Use consistent size values across variants of the same product, as well as across multiple products of the same category. For example, within a group of t-shirts, use “S”, “M” , and “L” as sizes, not “S”, “Medium” , and “Lrg”.


When an apparel attribute is an variant (option); It is also required to submit an image for each ‘color’, ‘material’, or ‘pattern’ variant which visually depicts that specific variant product. You may however submit the same image URL value for all size variants of a product if specific images are not available, ie for shoes.


An item group ID is also required when an apparel attribute for an variant (option) is used, Liquidshop will produce this for you and submit into the feed.
