About product siblings

Display product images as swatches

Broadcast includes the ability to link directly to other products as product swatches. The result is rich product detail pages that include swatches with images that represent each variant option.

This feature is called Siblings. When you view a sibling product, only the images associated with that 'variant' option, plus product details, and prices are shown:

'Variant' is outlined above as siblings require products to be used as pseudo-variants. Remember, variants in Shopify do not have a way to store more than one image out of the box. That's why we use products.

Swatch images

Each product sibling appears automatically as a swatch:

Unique product images

Only product images for that color style are shown:

Individual products

Each sibling is an individual product. Using custom metafields, Broadcast will connect these products together and auto-generate the swatch images.
