Variants are a means of organizing different configurations within a single "parent" product, where each configuration has a different SKU.
Variant Dimensions define the options by which you may configure the variants. (ie a Cotton T-Shirt product might have Variants based on 2 dimensions of Size and Color.
This article covers how to create a Variant Dimension and how to assign and edit products as a Variation.*
Create a Variant dimension
1. Navigate through Admin> Product Settings> Variant Dimensions and select New Attribute in the top right corner of the Variant Dimension table.
2. Name the variant attribute and enter the options for the variant in each text field by clicking Add Option as needed.
Assigning a Product a Variation
1. Select the Product and go to the Settings of the Edit Details Page. Check the box under Variations, designating that the product has multiple options. Select Save.
There should now be a Variations tab for that product.
Adding and Editing Product Variation Information
You can input variant data within the Variations tab for each variant, including related images, descriptions, and SKU data by selecting Add New Variation in the top right corner of the page.
