What Is Grouping?

Grouping helps to improve findability of your products easily (eg. customers can find different colors in one same product). Grouping does not work like variation(size) selections. Each of your SKUs created will be created as separate listing. 


Note: All manual grouping request stopped on the 8th of December 2017. We will no longer proceed with manual grouping request due to auto grouping launch. (Except for certain Sub-Categories)


Types of Grouping available

Auto Grouping

Auto grouping feature is launch to replace the manual grouping for all sellers. Auto grouping will auto group your SKUs upon creation. Auto grouping works when there's SKU Attributes (Page 4) for your SKU. Such as color family, baby sizes, storage capacity and more.
