Product variants play an important role in enabling customization, allowing businesses to offer different versions of their products to meet the diverse preferences of their target audience.

Apimio provides businesses with a comprehensive platform to streamline their product information management processes, including the creation and editing of product variants.

What are Product Variants?

Product variants are different versions or options of a particular product that share a common set of attributes while differing in certain characteristics. These characteristics can include variations in size, color, material, style, or any other feature that distinguishes one variant from another.

Steps to Create Product Variants

Creating and editing product variants with Apimio PIM is a simple process that allows you to efficiently manage your product options and attributes. Here are the step-by-step instructions:

Step 1: Go to the Products section

Log in to your Apimio account and navigate to the "Product" section on the dashboard, where you can see all your products listed. Also, multiple sub-options are available there, such as attributes, attribute sets, product variants, etc.

Step 2: Access the Variants option

Within the product details page, locate the "Variants" option. Click on it to enter the variants management interface.

To add a new variant, click on the "Add Variant" option. A popup window will appear, prompting you to provide the necessary details for the variant.

Step 3: Define the Variant

In the popup window, specify the variant you want to add. For example, if you are selling a shirt, you can add a variant for "Color." Enter the name of the variant in the designated field.

Under the variant name, you can add multiple options (values of your attribute) associated with that product variant. For instance, for the "Color" variant, you can include options such as "Red," "Blue," "Green," and so on.

Step 4: Save the Variant

Once you have entered the product variant name and options, click on the "Save" changes button to create the variant. The variant will now be added to your product.

Just like that you can follow the steps again, and create more variants of your choice.
