Why can’t I add more colors and/or sizes to my Shopify product?

Once a product is launched, the Variants have been sent to the Viralstyle queue in preparation for order. You will not be able to add/remove variants at this time, you must “Create Similar” and make your adjustments. Once you have done this, you can Delete the product duplicate so things aren’t cluttered or confusing.

On Shopify, products are limited to 100 variants. A variant is defined as 1-color, 1-size, and 1-style;

e.g. 1-Large, Navy, Unisex Cotton T-shirt.

If you choose to offer 2 styles in three different colors and six sizes (S–3XL), this is a total of 36 variants. We give you a “Variant Count” on the Launch page for you to review.

If you’d like to add more variants (sizes and/or colors) to your offering, but cannot due to the number of variants, please create them as separate products. You can do this by turning the “Use Product Style As Variant” option “OFF”. Find these settings in your Options > Plugin Configuration (top right, in-app).
