On Bol.com you can group your variants into families. Bol has some prerequisites for creating families. In order to configure your Bol.com API in Channable so that your variants will be grouped into families on Bol.com, follow the steps below.
Step 1 - Check your general API setup
For the products that you want to group, check the following things in your Bol.com API in Channable:
- The products should have the same category in the Categories step of your Bol.com API.
- The products should have the same value for the 'Brand', 'Author' or 'Artist' attribute in the Attributes step.
- The products should have different values for their distinctive feature attributes (for example 'Size', 'Color' or 'Shoe Size') in the Attributes step.
- You have a maximum of 100 variant products per family group.
Step 2 - Configure the 'Productvariant ID'
In order for Bol.com to group your variants, they need a 'Family Key'. This family key can be setup in Channable in the Attributes step in the attribute 'Productvariant ID':
Here you need to select an identifier that is the same for all variants within a family. This is often a field called 'item_group_id' or 'parent_id'.
Step 3 - Send your product families to Bol.com
After configuring the above, run the Bol.com API and check if the families are configured correctly in your Bol.com seller account.
