Sometimes the same product is available in different styles or types. For example, you might rent out a bike in a variety of different colors, a helmet in several different sizes, or cables with different lengths.
Enable variations for a product
- View a product and go to the Variations tab.
- Click Enable variations for this product.
Note: this cannot be undone; a product will always be a variation product even if you remove all the variations you've added.
Create new variations of a product:
Before you can add variations, you need to add a property that distinguishes different variations (e.g. color or size).
First, click Add property in the top-right.
Describe what makes this product different, and click Ok.
With your properties set up, you can add variations:
- Click Add variation in the bottom-right.
- Fill in the values for your properties.
- Click Save.
Note: Each Variation can have a different price, overruling the price set for the main product.

Adding stock items for a trackable product
In the product's Inventory tab, select a variation from the drop-down and click Add stock item.
Adding stock items for a bulk product
In the product's Inventory tab, use [+] and [-] to adjust stock levels for the different variations.
