Product Attributes and Variations

Before showing you how to add attributes and variations, let’s discuss about it first: 

  • Attributes: Attributes are the characteristics or properties of a product that can be used to describe or differentiate it. These attributes could include things like size, color, material, brand, weight, and any other relevant features of the product. Attributes provide important information to customers, helping them make informed purchasing decisions.
  • Variations: Variations are specific options or choices within an attribute. For example, if the attribute is “color,” variations could include red, blue, green, etc. Similarly, if the attribute is “size,” variations could include small, medium, large, etc. Variations allow customers to select the specific options they want for a product.

Now check how you can add attributes and variations for your products: 

How to Add Attributes

To add attributes, go to Products -> All Products, and select a product. Then scroll down a bit, there you will find the Attributes option. Click on the Attributes option.

But we are not done yet. Now we need to customize every attribute. 

You can change the “PRICE” and “SALE PRICE” for different attributes. You can also add the SKU and BARCODE for every attribute. 

Then click on the “Edit” button to manage the stock. Just simply enter the stock quantity number, or, you can also skip this part since it’s not mandatory.
