Attributes are the different features of a product and may include size, colour or style. You can add one, two or three attributes to your product. You will need to add values for each of these attributes and these may be the various colours, sizes or styles that your product has.
Product variants are made up of the main product that includes the main set of attributes and a set of further variations that represent different characteristics of the main product. Each of these attributes is represented with a different identifier or an SKU.
For example, a ‘Short Sleeved Shirt’ can be the main product and a ‘Small Blue Short Sleeved Shirt’ or ‘Large Green Short Sleeved Shirt’ can be variants.
