Configurable Product Creation In Magento

In Magento, a Configurated Product means it is one product with several attributes in drop-down such as color or size where customers are allowed to select one product. Each option has its own SKU and inventory listing. The products with multiple options are called a composite product.

If we want products with different size options such as X, Xl, XXL and we want to keep stock info for each of the individual sizes separately, then we need to create configurable products and attributes to achieve this.

A Configurable product offers the customers a variety of options, which are selected from drop-down lists. For example, a 'tee-shirt' that comes in 'three colors' and 'three sizes' would have two drop-down lists of options for 'Color' and 'Size'. Here the 'Size' & 'color' are called 'Configurable attributes' and 'tee-shirt' as 'Configurable Product'.

A Configurable Product is essentially a collection of Simple products which are presented as options in drop-down lists.

In this article, we are going to learn the steps involved to create a configuration product in Magento.
