How to add a variable product?

Variable Product

Variable products in your store let you offer a set of variations on a product, with control over prices, stock, image and more for each variation. They can be used for a product like a shirt, where you can offer a large, medium and small and in different colors.

  1. Go to: Add Product
  2. Select the Add Product button or Edit an existing product.
  3. Select Variable product from the Product Options dropdown.

 

In the Attributes section, add attributes before creating variations — use global attributes that are site-wide or define custom ones specific to a product.

  1. First create a global attribute.
  2. Then you can choose said global attribute from the dropdown and select Add.
  3. Choose Select all to add all values from to the variable product (if applicable).
  4. Most importantly select the Used for variations checkbox to use these for variations.
  5. Select Save attributes.

  1. Select Custom product attribute and click Add.
  2. Name the attribute (e.g., Size).
  3. Set values separated by a vertical pipe, | (e.g., Small | Medium | Large).
  4. Enable the Used for variations checkbox.
  5. Select Save attributes.

Manually Add a Variation

  1. Select Add variation from the dropdown menu, and select Go.
  2. Select attributes for your variation. To change additional data, click the triangle icon to expand the variation.
  3. Edit any available data. The only required field is Regular Price.
  4. Select Save changes.

Select Create variations from all attributes to create every possible combination of variations from your attributes and their values and select Go:

It will create a new variation for each and every possible combination of variation attributes (max 50 per run). If you have more possible combinations you can run it again.

For example, if you have two attributes size (with values large and small) it creates those variations.

Each variation can have the following properties.
