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).
Each variant has its own stock level and can also have its own SKU and prices.
By default, we have created 3 Options: Colour, Size and Material.
To create or edit Options and Attributes, please see the Variant settings page. This is important that you go to this page prior to creating your variants if you wish to change the default names (Colour, Size and Material).
