2. Next, click the Add Attribute button.

3. Enter the desired attribute code. In this example, we’re using the code “size” and “Size” for the on-screen prompt.

4. Next, select the type of attribute choice you want to use on-screen. Options include: Radio Buttons (default), Drop-down List, Checkbox, Text Area, Text Field and Swatch-Drop-down List. See below for examples of each type of attribute choice.


For each Attribute created, make sure the Track Inventory box is checked. This allows you to generate variants after you’re finished with attributes.
