Product variants are variations of a product with different attributes like size or color. Variants let customers choose between product options using drop-down menus.
You can create variants for new and existing products. Each variant has its own SKU. A single product can have up to 100 variants.
For help adding products to your store, visit Adding products to your store.
Tip: For products with multiple options, visit Adding complex product variants.
Note: Only Physical and Service products support variants.

Variants and images
You can add multiple images to a product, but selecting a variant won't automatically change the image displayed. For example, if a customer selects a red shirt when the default product image is a blue shirt, the product image won't automatically switch to a red shirt.
Step 1 - Open the product
In the Home Menu, click Pages. Click a Products Page. Double-click a product to open the product editor. For detailed steps, visit Editing a product.
Step 2 - Add product options
In the product editor, click the Pricing & Variants tab.
The product needs at least one unique attribute such as size, color, or style.

Step 3 - Add product variants
Product variants can include different pricing, sale, and stock values.

You can edit the SKU, Pricing, Stock, Weight, and Dimensions of a variant in addition to any new product options you've created.
Note: Dimensions are used to calculate the best container for the carrier-calculated via USPS shipping option.
