Colors, Materials and Sizes Overview
When adding colors, sizes and materials to your online store, you only need to add them once as a global option and then you can associate them to ANY item in the store. This saves a tremendous amount of time for large stores with similar items that use the same options.
For example, with Site Store Pro, you can add Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large as sizes into the system. After adding these sizes, they will be available to ANY item in the store. Therefore, if you are adding multiple items that have S, M, L, XL size choices, you only need to check off which sizes correspond to the item(s) instead of adding the same sizes every time they are needed for an item.
Colors, sizes and materials are controlled via the web-based product manager inside the admin and can be assigned (associated) with an item by editing an item and clicking on the specific tab (colors, sizes, materials).
The steps to associate a color, size or material as an option to a product are:
1) Add the color, size or material to the system as a global option under the ‘Products’ section of the admin.
3) When the option type page loads, check off which options should be associated with that item.
