|What are product attributes?
Attributes are extra pieces of information that you can collect when a user buys your product. Attributes are used to either collect more information about your customer, or about the product that is being purchased. Attributes do not affect the price of a product.
You sell a T-Shirt with a particular design on it, and it is available in 3 sizes.
You would create one product item 'T-Shirt with particular design', and add product attributes 'Small, Medium, Large'.
