Abstract product: reference information

Edit on GitHub

Create/edit abstract product

The following tables describe the attributes that you use when creating and editing concrete and abstract products.

Info

The set of tabs for the Create and Edit pages, as well as for abstract and concrete products, is different. Hence, the additional columns with identifiers are added for your convenience.

ATTRIBUTE DESCRIPTION CREATE ABSTRACT PRODUCT UPDATE ABSTRACT PRODUCT
Merchant Price Dimension B2B Only
Allows selecting a merchant relation and setting up a specific price for a specific merchant. If the Default value is selected, the prices will be the same for everyone. The values available for selection derive from Marketplace > Merchant Relations. Only one value can be selected.

Gross price Net price Price value for gross and net mode. The price you populate is inherited by all product variants you add during the abstract product creation. Yes Yes
Default Original Default prices are prices your customers will pay, whereas original prices are the “previous price” in case you want to display promotions. If you specify only a default price, it will be displayed just like a normal product price. However, if both prices are specified, the original one will appear crossed out in the shop. Yes Yes
Add Product Volume Price
Edit Product Volume Price
Once selected, the Add volume price (Edit volume price) page opens. This option allows you to define specific prices for a specific quantity of products that a customer selects. It works only in the case of Default prices. The Add Product Volume Price button appears only when the gross and/or net prices for a store are set up beforehand and saved. Edit Product Volume Price appears only if the volume price has already been set up for a currency. No Yes
Tax Set Conditions under which a product is going to be taxed. The values available for selection derive from Taxes > Tax Sets. Only one value can be selected. Yes Yes

Variants tab

Info

No values are available for selection when you create a product bundle. When you create a bundle, one product variant will be added by default.

  • While creating an abstract product, you see a list of super attributes that derive from Catalog > Attributes. You can select as many super attributes as you need and define from one to many values for them (those values will define the difference between the product variants). Please keep in mind that moving forward, you will be able to create product variants only based on the selected super attributes. To add more product variants in the future, add at least one super attribute and define at least one value for it.

  • While editing the abstract product/product bundle, you see a table that displays the product variants that exist for this abstract product. From this page, you can view, edit, and manage attributes for the product variant.
