What is an attribute?

Attributes add extra options to your store and product pages. You can set up the two different types of Storefront attributes:

Product variant attributes – options that appear on a product page for customers to add your product
Checkout extras – optional extras that can be added to a purchase at checkout stage

‘Product variant attributes’ are applied to products when you are creating them, so in this section you will be asked to set up the basic options and then will be able to customise them in the ‘Products’ section. Any options you create in ‘Checkout extras’ will be offered to all customers on every checkout page.
