Variable Product: select this classification if your product has different variations or sizes.


You’ll then scroll to the ATTRIBUTE tab and tick the variant you’d like to add to the product – e.g. SIZE attribute (S, M, L, XL) or COLOUR.

Be sure to tick the “Active” box, and these attributes will appear on your product listing.


Once you’ve created the Attribute, click on the VARIATIONS button and you’ll be able to edit each variation, change pricing, images and more.
