With variants you can put together a product in different variants. Each variant has a different stock, price and possibly a photo. For example, you can sell 1 product in multiple color combinations. Also view the short video course at the bottom of this page for a quick overview.
What are variants?
It often happens that you want to sell a product in different shapes and sizes. We call these different types, sizes, colors and/or other variations on a product Variants. When 1 product has different Variants with its own stock, price, VAT or image, the use of variants is ideal. For example, a piece of clothing in a certain color and size, or a TV screen in different sizes. Or a key ring that is packed per 10 or 50 pieces. In short, you want to sell your product in several variants.
When you have created many variants and variant groups, the list can be very long. To quickly find the right variant or variant group, you can enter a keyword at the top which immediately applies as a filter for the variant list.

If you want to add a new variant group, enter the name of the new group at the top of the screen. Then click on the green icon with the 'plus' sign in it. The group is then immediately added to the list and is also immediately saved.
Modify variant group name
To rename a variant group, click the text of a variant group. An input screen with the current name appears. Change the name and hit enter to save the changes immediately. Each group name may only appear once in the list! The system will automatically check this for you.

It is only possible to delete this variant if a variant is not currently used for 1 or more products. You can do this by clicking on the red icon behind the name of the variant. You will be asked for confirmation. When you confirm this, the variant will be permanently deleted.
