We've made it easy for you to add multiple seasons to a product. This means that when you create a product in Uphance, you can assign several seasons to it and carry stock across each season without setting a new SKU, UPC, or EAN number for the product.

How can this new update benefit your business? If nothing else, it saves you the trouble of creating or uploading products several times across seasons: you only have to create once and add the seasons you want to them.

The best part is that you can delete variations you don't want for each season or add a new one.

Other Benefits of Products in Multiple Seasons

  • As we mentioned earlier, you don't have to set SKU numbers, EANs, or UPCs for each new season.

  • Ensures you have a consolidated record for products spread across different seasons. This simplifies sales reporting and tracking for your products.

  • Makes it easy to carry stock across different seasons

  • You don't have to update a product on your eCommerce portal (Shopify or WooCommerce) or marketplace (JOOR) when you add a new season to it: the season information is updated automatically.

  • Allows you to forecast sales for upcoming seasons efficiently.


Can I import multiple seasons from an Excel/CSV file?

Yes, you can. You just have to ensure that the seasons you want to add to a product are separated by a comma in the import file.

Do I have to update products in my Shopify/WooCommerce store when I add another season to them?

No, you don't. The system takes care of this automatically.

What happens when you create a sales order manually and select "All Seasons" during the product selection process?

Firstly, you will see the season(s) for each product at the top-right corner. Select the products you want to add. This can be products that belong exclusively to the initial season you selected or a subset of it but also belong to other seasons.

By default, the Sales Order will have the original season you selected, even though you can change it.

Do you need to create a unique product identifier each time you add a season to a product?

No, you don't have to.

How do I create a product variation on Shopify if other variations are already connected under different seasons?

Go to Product eCommerce and click "Product Update". It will create the missing variations on Shopify.

I have a product with multiple duplicates spread across several seasons. What happens when I merge them into one season?

  • First, you have to select which product season you want to retain. The duplicates will merge into it.

  • The merged duplicates will bear the EAN/UPC and image of the product you chose to retain.

  • The variants of those duplicates will also merge into the retained product

  • Your stock level will remain the same. For instance, if you have five duplicates and one original product (the one you retained) making six, stock levels will still stay at six even though you now have just one existing product.
