Creating an n-Matrix Overview


Creating an n-Matrix with multiple dimensions is a multi-step process. Be sure to first enable it in Client Settings.


Creating a n-Matrix


1.Under Settings select n-Matrix. This will take you to n-Matrix dimension page where you will click the Add New Dimension button.

2.Complete the following fields and save.

Product Type – for reference (not required)


3.Select Manage Values to Edit the Values (Colors, Sizes,Teams,Tea Flavors)


4. Now, add a new product to your catalog with a name that will reflect that it is a parent product of the variations. In our example we would call it Sports Jerseys.

5. On the Product Summary page of the parent product, open toolbox and click N-Matrix > Matrix General. Select the dimensions you want to add to this product. You can add a new dimension if necessary. Click Continue on the bottom of the page.


6. On this page you will need to copy and paste a product SKU into its corresponding Product ID to build it upon a parent and child scheme.. 


 
7. It's important to note, that when creating N-matrix listing that the Parent inventory always remain 0 and the children retain the inventory.
