A variant is created for an existing HikaShop product based on the values of characteristics (that you can add to your product in the Specifications area of the product edition page).

For example, you have created a shoe product, and you have lots of other colors available for it. You must first create a characteristic with a value for each color via the Characteristics menu (Products->Characteristics). Then, add the characteristic to your product (See the Specifications chapter, here). And finally, you can go in the Variants tab in order to add all the variants (combinations of values of characteristics) required. Let’s discover how the process looks like.
