Attributes can be utilised to add additional details to your products, without having to use the Product Description. If you have a series of one- or two-word keywords for you different products, then Attributes could be used to display these.
Attributes can be used in two main ways:
- When you have a predefined list of all of your attributes, and you only choose from those Attributes.
- Example: Skill levels, duration, tutor
- Add attributes as needed to your products.
- Example: Topics
Attributes can be grouped together, which allow you to more easily organise your attributes and display them to your customers.
To enable the use of Attributes, you will need to go into:
- General Settings
- Scroll down until you see: “Show Attributes On Product”
Defining Attribute Groups
To define an Attribute Group, go to:
- Attribute Group tab
Click on the “Add Attribute Group” button and provide a name for the Group. Once this is done, click “Save and Close”
To define Attributes, go to:
- Attribute tab
Click on “Add Attribute”. In this section, you can provide a Name for the Attribute, assign it to a Group, and provide an Image/Icon to identify the Attribute. Once you are happy, click “Save and Close”.
Adding an Attribute to a Product
To add an Attribute to a product, go to:
- Select your Product
- Attributes tab
In this section, you can either use the “Find Attributes by Value” option to find an Attribute that you have already created, or use the “Add Attribute” to add an Ad-hoc attribute to this product.
