How to create product variants based on combinations of their options?

If Target shopping cart supports the advanced product options combinations, Cart2Cart allows to transform simple products from source store into configurable product variants on target store. You'd be able to specify separate quantities, stock level and SKU (or EAN, model etc) for each combination.

This option is available for the following target shopping carts only:

  • Magento - products will be configurable
  • VirtueMart - option combinations become product items
  • X-Cart - option combinations will be products variants
  • Zen Cart - only if "Stock quantities by attributes" contribution is installed
