Configurable Product: Step 2 - Create the Attribute Set


Creating an Attribute Set The “drop-down” attributes are included in an Attribute Set, which is used as a template to create both the Configurable product and the associated records for each product variation.

  1. From the Admin panel, select Catalog > Attributes > Manage Attribute Sets. Then, click the Add New Set button.
  2. Assign a Name to the attribute set.
  3. In the Based On list, select an existing attribute set, such as “Default,” to use as a template.  Then, click the Save Attribute Set button.
  4. Add New Attribute Set
    Catalog > Attributes > Manage Attribute Sets: Add New Set
