Attributes

Magento uses attributes to manage the information associated with products, customers, and product ratings. Attributes are pieces of information that might appear as fields in forms, reports, product reviews, layered navigation, and email messages. Some attributes are built into the system, and others can be created to address specific needs.

You can find more information about attributes in the Products and Data Transfer sections of this guide. To learn more, see:
