Products Variants:

  • Variant (also called Variant Property) is a specific feature/property used for classification of a product.
    • For example, the “Size” of a Shirt is a Variant and the Variant Values are 40, 45, 50,100, etc…
  • Different 'Variants' with their 'Variant Values' are grouped to form a ‘Product Variant’.
    • For example, if the SKU of the original product (shirt) is 14678, then, a 'medium-sized' 'green' shirt with a Variant stock-keeping unit (Variant SKU) of 14678mg is one ‘Product Variant’ of that Shirt.
    • In this example, the Variants - Size & Color with the 'Variant Values - Medium & Green are clubbed together to form a Product Variant.
    • You can also create the 'Product Variants' with a single Variant mapped with suitable Variant Value, such as 'Medium Sized shirt' or 'Green Color Shirt'.
    • You can add/edit or delete/deactivate ‘Product Variants’ here.
  • You can create different 'Product Variants' for a base product by assigning different Variant Values and you can maintain unique Variant SKU, Price, Inventory, etc… for 'Products Variants'.
  • You can also create 'Product Variants' while you are creating Products.
