Set global attributes

Go to Products > Attributes to add, edit, and remove attributes.

Here you can quickly and easily add attributes and their terms.

  • Add a Name press Enter

Select Add Attribute.

The attribute is added in the table on the right, but without values.

Select the gear icon to add attribute values. You’ll see “Configure terms” when you hover over it.

Next Add New “Attribute name”, where “Attribute name” automatically takes the name you gave the attribute in the previous step.

Add as many values as you wish. If you selected “Custom ordering” for the attribute, reordering your values can be done here.

Add global attributes to product

Add the created attributes to your products.

Go to: Products > Add Product (or edit an existing one).

Select the Attributes tab in the Product Data. There you can choose any of the attributes that you’ve created in the dropdown menu.

Select Add.

If you selected a global attribute that you previously created, you can select terms that you added previously.

Add custom attributes

Alternatively, add an attribute you only want to use for one product. This would only be ideal if you have a product with unique variations.

Go to: Product > Add Product.

Select the Attributes tab.

Select Custom product attribute in the dropdown and follow the above steps.
