Check out this short tutorial on creating a variation listing, also known as an "n-Matrix" in SellerCloud.


  1. Click Client Settings > Enable Product n-Matrix > Save.
  2. Click Settings > N Matrix.
  3. Click Add New Dimensions.
  4. Complete the following fields and Save.
    1. Unique Name: Name of a particular dimension to be associated with the intended products
    2. Display Name: Name as it appears on the channel
    3. Abbreviation: An abbreviated form 
    4. Manufacturer: For reference (not required)
    5. Product Type: For reference (not required)

  5. Click Manage Values to edit values (such as colors, sizes, flavors, etc.).

  6. Add a new product to your catalog with a name that reflects it is a parent product of the variations. In this example, MatrixParent.
  7. On the parent product's Product Summary > Toolbox > N-Matrix > Matrix General > choose dimensions to add to this product (if necessary, add a new dimension) > Continue (at bottom of page).

  8. Copy and paste a product SKU into its corresponding Product ID to build it on a parent and child scheme. 
  9. Learn how to set images on variations.


Note: When creating an n-matrix listing, parent inventory always stays at 0 and the children retain the inventory because the parent is not a real product.
