What is a sub-product?

Combined variations of a product are called sub-products, e.g. if the product is a T-shirt, the medium red T-shirt is a sub-product and the large green T-shirt is another sub-product.

Each sub-product can have their own:

  • Code/SKU
  • Stock (& settings)
  • Price
  • Tax type
  • Shipping measurements
  • Availability
  • Status
  • Images

Is anything inherited from the product?

Yes. If any of the following information is left blank, it's inherited from the product:

  • Shipping measurements
  • Price
  • Tax type
