How do I create individual variations of a product in Virtuemart
What are product variants in Virtuemart and how do I set them up?
Product variants in Virtuemart are unique combinations of product attributes available for selection by customers. They enable customers to select from multiple available options for the products they are ordering on your e-commerce platform. For example, if you are selling shirts, you might want to offer various sizes and colors for customers to choose from.
Setting Up Product Variants in Virtuemart
Setting up product variants in Virtuemart is a relatively straightforward process. To begin, you will need to go into your Virtuemart backend and select the ‘Products’ tab. From there, you can create your product and add the options you would like to offer.
Once you have created your product, you will need to select the ‘Variants’ tab from the left-hand sidebar. This will allow you to add the specific variants of your product. For example, if you are adding a size variant, you will need to input the options here.
You will then need to setup any pricing you wish to assign to each variant. This can be done from the ‘Base Price’ tab.
Finally, you will need to go to the ‘Configuration’ tab and select the options you wish for your product variants. This will allow you to choose the display type for your product variants, which can be in a radio button, drop-down menu, or check-box format.
Product variants are a great way to create more options for customers when shopping on your Virtuemart store. Setting up product variants is relatively simple, though it may be worth considering the use of a plugin, such as the Variants Generator, to make the process even simpler.
