Note

Enable "Manage Stock Levels" if you want to keep track of your inventory level. Disabling this will display an infinity symbol on your product stock that will keep you from seeing the actual stock on hand.

Stock Configuration

Enable "Sellable" if you would like to sell the product. Disabling this prevents you from adding the item to your sales orders. Also, you will have to unpublish the variant from your sales channel before you can disable this option.

Enable "Batch Tracked" if the product will be part of a batch. For more information regarding Batch Tracking, please refer to this article.

 Variants and Pack Sizes

If you have multiple variants for the product, check the option ‘This product has multiple variants’.

6-Multiple-Variants_2x.jpg

You can choose up to three different variant options. Variant options refer to the way in which you can further categorize your products. For example, for the first option, you can choose to sort your variants by size. For the second option, you can choose to sort them by colour. Or, you could choose to sort them by fabric type/material.
For each variant option, you will need to fill in option values. An option value refers to the different properties each option might have. For example, if a variant option is size, the option values could be Small, Medium and Large. 

As you create the tags for each variant option, you will see the variant details being listed in the table below the fields. A SKU will automatically be created here based on the option values.

Once you are done creating your variants, you can remove any extra variations in the Variant Details table. All possible combinations will be created by default. You may uncheck any variants that you don't want. You can also edit the details on the table. Click on the cell to edit it and enter the new value.

Pack sizes

If your product requires pack sizes check the box to add you pack size variants, label, and the quantity. Click here to know more about how Pack Sizes work.

 

Once you have completed all the fields on the page, continue to view your summary and create your product.
