Variant Products (Products with Options)

id” – Ideally, the variant SKU but any unique identifier value will suffice
item_group_id” – The BigCommerce Product Id or Product-level SKU*. Can be prefixed/suffixed with other characters eg “P_”

Non-Variant Products (Products without Options)

id” & “item_group_id” – The BigCommerce Product Id or Product-level SKU*. Can be prefixed/suffixed with other characters eg “P_”

* As Product SKU is an optional field, if blank, the feed should revert to the BigCommerce Product ID
