New Bulk Variation Forms outputs: Separate or single print-ready file
This is huge deal, believe us.
You can now choose if you prefer to have different files for each variants or if you want a single preview file valid for each variation, when using the Bulk Variation Form. Selecting the individual Print-Ready Files option you will receive separate print-ready files for each variant purchased by your customers in bulk.
This will also show a different thumbnail for each variant in your store’s cart for a better user experience during purchase.
That’s not enough. If you choose the other output, the only one Print-Ready File option instead, you will receive a single print-ready file, regardless of the number of variants purchased. This file will be based on the variant initially selected on the e-commerce page.
Also, the variant selected on the product page now automatically shows as pre-selected inside the Bulk Form as well and customers will see the correct thumbnail inside the cart, creating a more seamless and engaging customer experience.
For those of you with many variants, keep in mind that from now on column/row headers remain fixed even at scroll. High five!
