Things to Remember

  • A configurable product allows the shopper to choose options from drop-down lists. Each option is actually a separate, simple product.

    Each drop-down list values is based on an attribute of the “Dropdown” input type. The drop-down attributes must be included in the attribute set, which is then used as a template for the configurable product.
