Volusion Parent/Child Product Conversion

We have an existing Volusion product database of 3,000 products. These products are mostly fabrics we sell by the yard.

Currently, we use a single product for each color of the same fabric. We want to convert our products to use a parent product with "color options" that will allow people to choose the fabric product, then choose the color option. This Volusion article explains how options work.

Since some of our fabrics have 5 colors and some have 60 colors, we expect our database will reduce to 200-300 master products after this conversion.

In addition, we use the Google Merchant service, so the new master products will need to conform to the requirements listed in this Volusion article. (For example, each unique color like "Green Apple" will need to be mapped to "Green" for the standard Google color. We have google colors assigned to each fabric currently.)

In order to do this conversion, these items should be considered:

1. Our current fabrics list the unique color name within the Product Description field, these will need to be broken out of the description (i.e. fabric name might be "Green Apple Silk Double Georgette")

2. All unique colors will need to be created as options (i.e. "Green Apple" will be a new option)

3. Color options will need to be mapped to the master products

4. JPG Images from our existing products will need to be renamed to match the new color option they correspond to

5. Some of our products currently have a matching thread product as an accessory, these will need to be preserved (i.e. our "Green Apple" fabric may have a green thread product as an accessory)

Only Volusion experts should bid, I just don't have time to teach someone how this all works.

Only Volusion experts may send me a PMB to request our existing database in CSV format during the bidding process if it helps in clarifying the project.

If this project goes well, it can become a long-term freelancer for handling product adds/moves/changes in the future.

Reminder, as an item 6, you'll need to provide the 301 redirects for any product links that don't exist after this change.
