Attributes and variants

In this section, you can manage the Options and Attributes of your product variants.

Variants: sometimes the same product is available in different styles or types. For example, you might sell shoes in a number of different sizes, or a table in different materials.

Options: for example, if the product is available in different colors as well as different sizes. Colors and sizes are options.

Attributes: for example, if the product is available in different material, wood and plastic. Wood and plastic are the attributes of their parent option (material).

For example, a table is available in different styles (variants), they come in different materials and sizes (options); wood, plastic, small and large (attributes).
