After many months of hard work, we are incredibly excited to announce that we now have support for Etsy Variations!

Etsy Variation Inventory Management in Craftybase

How does it work?

If you have Variations configured for your Etsy Listings, these variations will now be automatically imported into Craftybase and linked to your Order Line Items. We have already done much of the backdating on your behalf, so you should already find your historical listing and sales have been linked to Variations already when you next log in.

New and previous Manufactures can now also be attributed directly to both Variations and Projects - and to complete the workflow - Batch Recipes are also now configurable for each individual Variation.

What does this mean?

We now can finally provide complete granularity to your Etsy inventory tracking through Craftybase: from this week, you can now see at a glance which of your Variations are in stock, how many you have made and exactly how much each Variation costs you to produce.

A couple of minor caveats to mention: Variations cannot currently be modified, merged together or manually added to at present: these are all on our improvement list that we hope to start rolling out over the coming weeks.

Some new help articles to get you started can be found here:
