Hi!

 

What is the difference between product options and variants? I checked the documentation but can someone clarify? 

 

Also, I tested the API and the variants that I added in a product appear in the products options.

Hi guys,

Options are the various characteristics that can specify a product, so for instance you may have colour (red, green, blue) and size (S, M, L, XL).

Variants are the valid combinations of options that exist.  For instance, Red & Green may exist in S, M & L, while Blue exists in S, M, XL.  

You'd have 9 variants, but 3 colour options and 4 size options.

Regards,

Jack
