Learn how to create variant products and assign custom attributes
If your product has multiple sizes, colors, or other variations, you can create variants from the Product Details page. For example, a T-shirt might be offered in multiple sizes and colors. Each combination of color and size would correspond to a specific product variant.
Product Variants each have a corresponding Product ID, and require their own respective unique SKU code.
If your product has multiple variants you should think of them as separate products, in that they may have unique product details (including storefront styling, attributes, SKU and so on).
Create product variants from the Product Details View.
To convert an existing stand-alone product to a variant, select the More Actions menu, and choose Convert to Variant.
For products with existing variants, simply choose Add Variant Product from the Product Variants card.
Variants are defined by the specific attributes available to them. These attributes can be set up and assigned from the Product Details View, on the Product Variants tab, by selecting Add Variant Attribute.
To use the example of a T-shirt that comes in two sizes (small and large) and three colors (red, green, blue), you would define these variant attributes when adding the product to your store.
Select Add Variant Attribute, and create two variant attributes: Color & Size
- To set up the Color product attribute
- Set the Name field to “Color”
- Set the “Option” field to "Red"
- Choose Add Variant Attribute to define additional Option fields for "Green" and "Blue"
- Click Save
To add additional variant product attributes, such as Size, click the Add Variant Attribute button on the Product Variants card, and repeat the above steps, then click Save.
From here, you can continue to set up Variant products in the same way as a stand-alone product. Remember, variant products have their own respective Product IDs and SKU codes.
