Product Items

Items

Items are child products of the parent product you just created. First you must create an 'Attribute' that will hold a unique property for each item.
One example: we want to sell the same product in various formats such as Book, CD, cassette and DVD. We only need the one description and image but a way to choose the media.

Create a product to be the parent. Make it 'Product Physical' = 'No'.
Click on the 'Item' Tag and then 'Add Attributes'. Add an attribue called 'Media'.
Go back to the product->Items and click 'New Item'. Fill in the fields and be sure to fill in the attribute (eg: media = book)

There is a component option called "Show Items in a select dropdown" that can be set by menu item as well. All items with the same name will be shown in a select box. For example you could create the attribute color, then create 4 T-Shirt items with the attributes red, blue, green, yellow. They will show in a select box.
