Prerequisites to create an item with variations

An item with variations is a grouping of items that have varying attributes such as style, size, color, or other attributes.

Such a grouping of items is useful when you have items that have individual variable attributes, but yet are similar. For example, a short-sleeved shirt that is available in multiple colors and sizes. The color and size of the short-sleeved shirt are the item's variable attributes.

You can create an item with variation only if you have created a classification with the purpose, Distinct Attribute, and assigned various values to the classification.

Before creating an item with variations you need to perform the following tasks:

  1. Define an attribute group.
  2. Create attributes in the attribute group, which are required for the item with variations such as style, size, color, and so on.
  3. Create a classification.
  4. Assign the purpose to the classification as Distinct Attribute.
  5. Create a classification value for the classification.
  6. Assign attributes to the classification value.

You can create an item with variations from the Create Item screen.
