Managing Product Features

The difference between an attribute and a feature is that attributes are used to create product combinations while features are not. If you add a feature to a product, the feature applies to all the combinations of the product.

Features are optional product characteristics that provide more information and details about the product. They are not changed through the product variations, as they are not options but standard specifications that will be listed in the Data Sheet section of your product.

  1. To create a new feature, go to Catalog -> Attributes and Features section. Choose the Feature tab and click the Add new feature button: 
  2. Fill in the form:
    • Name – the title of the feature.
  3. Then click the Add new feature value button: 
  4. Fill in the form:
    • Feature – select a feature for the value from the drop-down list.
    • Value – define the value for the feature.
  5. You will be able to assign the needed value to the product in Catalog -> Products section after saving the changes.
