Product variants showing as separate products on collection pages (Not possible)

It is not possible to show variants as separate products in Shopify. Our team has investigated this but Shopify currently lacks the ability to create such a feature at this time. There is currently an app which appears to add the functionality which I will link below.

Theme support does not cover app support, so any issues with the set up or app, please reach out to their support team (there are over 5000 apps and it would be impossible for us to keep track of how they all work).
