How are Variants synced into HubSpot and what is the difference between SKU, Product SKU, and Variant SKU?
The HubSpot product object is different in data structure than all the shopping cart product objects.
Your e-commerce store will have support for Products and Product Variants (product options), but HubSpot has no support for Product Variants. HubSpot only supports the mainFor example:
- Suppose your store sells a "T-Shirt" in sizes "Small", "Medium" and "Large"
- Your store will have a product with Title "T-Shirt" and SKU "tshirt" and each variant with its own title and SKU as follows:
- Variant 1 Title: "Small" with SKU "small-tshirt"
- Variant 2 Title: "Medium" with SKU "med-tshirt"
- Variant 3 Title: "Large" with SKU "large-tshirt"
- Since HubSpot has no ability to sync the variant data, Unific had to create a workaround
- For every Variant (product option) in your store, Unific will create a NEW Product in HubSpot
- For our example: There will be 3 HubSpot Products for every variant (Tshirt - Small, Tshirt - Medium, Tshirt Large)
- For every Variant, Unific will sync the Variant's SKU to the "Variant SKU" property in HubSpot
- For our example: For each of the 3 HubSpot Products created above, the "Variant SKU" property will have values that are the variant's SKU from the store (small-tshirt, med-tshirt, large-tshirt respectively)
- For every Variant's Parent Product, Unific will sync the "Product SKU" into each variant's property
- For our example: For each or the 3 HubSpot Products created above, the "Product SKU" property will all have the same value (tshirt, tshirt, tshirt)
- Why is the SKU property always blank? The SKU property for ALL HubSpot products created by Unific will be blank by design because:
- HubSpot has internal checks which prevent any user or API integration to create two products with the same SKU, but as we learned above, every Variant product requires its *own* product with the parent product SKU populated. HubSpot won't allow any integration to create two products with the same SKU. Thus this SKU field needs to remain blank
Why can't Unific use existing products in HubSpot and has to create its own copies of products?
Unific can't use existing products in HubSpot because the structure of products is different in HubSpot than the products in the shopping carts. Please read the variant data sync section above.
