If you are a Shopify website owner, it is important to know how to find the variant ID of a product.
A Variant ID is a system-generated, unique number, used to identify individual products or variants. The variant ID is necessary when importing or exporting products in bulk from Shopify.
It is important if you are a Shopify store owner, you understand the purpose of a variant ID and where you can find it for a specific product.
A variant ID is a numerical value that is attached to a variation of a product in Shopify. It is a system-generated unique code per product, and per variant of each product in Shopify.
This helps identify products in a Shopify store that are variations of one another. Say you are a retailer that sells phone cases; you will need variants to identify different colour options for instance on a single phone case model.

The variant ID is the number at the end of the URL. This ID will enable you to recognise a particular product within your Shopify store and allow you to quickly recognise how much you have in stock.
