We know there are A LOT of suggestions to deal with duplicates. Please know this is on our radar and there *may* be an update in the future. (changing quantities from STR, generate multiple links, etc.) Let’s use this thread as a helpful tool for others and not a feature suggestion thread. Thank you 🙂
A common question among STR users is “What do you do with duplicates?”.
There are a few options when uploading duplicates into STR:
- Upload the photo individually and update the quantity box before submitting.Take the number of photos equal to the amount of item you have. Then upload all of those photos alongside the rest of the items in their size. Example: I have 3 plain black one size leggings, when taking photos, I snap 3 photos of those plain black leggings, then upload all 3 leggings photos in with my one size leggings.
- There is a style called “Duplicates”. You can upload one photo in your normal size and style and then upload the rest of your duplicates under the “Duplicates” style to keep them separate.
- There is also a size called “Duplicates”. You can choose your correct style and then “Duplicates” as the size to keep your dups together in the style.
Posting to Facebook or STR Party
When STR posts photos, each item has to have it’s own link in order for it to be claimed and tracked. Here are some real life examples of how people post duplicates 🙂
Post only one photo with one link to your FB group. Select the duplicates and “List without Posting to Facebook Now” to generate links. If it sells and someone comments “Next”, reply to that person with the link to the duplicate and say “Yay! I actually have another pair of these! Congrats!” or something along those lines.
Post only one photo with one link to your FB group. Select the duplicates and “List without Posting to Facebook Now” to generate links. In the comment section of the item, post “I have 4 pairs of these one size leggings. Please click the links to claim :)”
Post all duplicates at once 🙂
I hope this helps answer some questions. Please let us know if you have another idea you can share with the group.
