Adding basic product variants

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.
