PRODUCT ATTRIBUTES are the building blocks of product structures. Use them

- for filtering
- for internal registration and identification of your products

We already included the most-used elements of products which might just fit your needs.

If you did not find the best attribute for your unique needs, you can always choose to create them.
By clicking here, you will find info about
- the types and roles of attributes
- settings of attributes
Using Product Attributes as building blocks, you can create PRODUCT STRUCTURES, which are the frames of your products and provide you with the possibility to customise the information, both for internal and external purposes.
You can organise your product attributes on different levels, creating multi-level product structures.
Product structure levels are defined by
- the versions of your product
- the choices you offer for your customers when buying your product
Check out the pre-set structures under Products, by clicking on the Product structure tab.
PRODUCT ATTRIBUTES AND MULTI-LEVEL STRUCTURES
Your product can share some of the same attributes as well as they can have characteristics which are unique on each level(s).
Level 1: general information (e.g. country of origin, description)
Level 2: specific information, characteristics of the product which are not shared generally by all variants (e.g. colors and media)
Level 3: characteristics of the product which are not shared on any previous level (e.g. size, barcode/SKU)
For each level you will need to define which is the VARIANT ATTRIBUTE.
This is the characteristic of your product that makes it different from any previous levels (size, color, smell, etc.)
Different versions - different pricesWould you like to sell your product on different prices defined by the versions of it?
You can easily do. Just place the price-defining attribute as the variant attribute on the last level of the product structure, and give unique prices based on that characteristic.
