Kind of racking my brain on this one and I can’t seem to find an easy answer as all answers suggest to use configurable products, but that is not an option as that would not work for me on eBay listings.
I got some parts that have different specifications, so in essence I have a part number 123456 that may offer different specification depending on its use (it has to do with pistons and engine configurations, so I won’t try to explain). The simplest idea is to create “fake” SKUs such as 123456-a, 123456-b, etc. That way I can have unique product pages in Magento using simple products and those can then easily be listed on eBay with different titles and specifications. I list in eBay Motors, so I am allowed up to 5 duplicates, not that they would catch on to fake “SKUs” anyway.
The reason for wanting to key on another field in a Magmi import is that I may need to update pricing, pictures, or other attributes that are common to all configurations of the product. I rather not have to prep the common data every time and search out the parts that have multiple specifications and manually duplicate that information to align with the SKUs I am using.
I appreciate any thoughts on this.
