Overview

The product data file is updated every 24 hours and will include any new and changed products as well as omitting any products that are no longer available from PenCarrie, where applicable.

The inventory file is updated every 15 minutes.

Shopify File Size and Variant Upload Limitations

Shopify only allows up to 50,000 variants to be uploaded into a NEW Shopify store before a daily limit of only 1,000 variants a day is enabled, in addition Shopify only allows file uploads of 15 MB or less.

To ensure neither of these limits are breached, the zipped Product Data file contains CSV files of up to 1,000 variants per file which are all under the file size limit of 15 MB. To include all PenCarrie products on your site, each file in the Product Data zip file should be uploaded to your Shopify store.

Shopify Variant Limits

Shopify has a limit of 100 variants per product on its storefront. Variants equate to individual products by colour and then size in PenCarrie data (SKUs). 

Many of PenCarrie's products have more than 100 variants, due to the permutations of colours and sizes available. As an example, the JH001 AWDis College Hoodie has over 70 colours, some in sizes ranging from XS to 5XL, far exceeding this limit.

The JH001 AWDis Hoodie comes in over 70 colours and 500 variations, making it a challenge for Shopify

To prevent the Shopify product import from rejecting products with more than 100 variants, the Shopify data file "chunks" these larger variant styles into smaller "products" based on their colour.

Following import, there are various approaches that can be used within Shopify or with help from your Developer to recombine these products from an end-user perspective.

Troubleshooting

We endeavour to keep up to date with any changes Shopify make to their product data import requirements. Import problems are invariably a result of settings within your Shopify store. Shopify provide great help and support on common import issues here.
