No comments


The configurable product is one of the most popular product types of Magento. It looks like a simple item plus a list of options for each variation. For example, the store sells a T-shirt and offer different colors (yellow, green and red) and sizes (S, M and L) of that shirt for the buyers to choose. In this case, the yellow T-shirt is in fact a separate simple product, which has a unique SKU. Therefore, it is easy for us to track inventory for every variation.
