Product Attributes help pass along important information about your Products to your customers, Administrators, and Multifront. New Products inherit their Product Attributes from their respective Product Attribute Category.

Product Attributes are comprised of Attribute Details and an Attribute Type.

  • Attribute Details are the actual descriptive bits of information which are associated to Products.
  • Attribute Types determines what type of input to accept and, ultimately, how Multifront will interact with your Attribute.

The multi-front comes with many default Product Attributes to get you off the ground. These are our most commonly used Attributes to help Administrators start creating Products in their stores, however, mileage may vary. During Product creation, you'll be able to choose which Attributes appear when you choose a Product Attribute Category.

When you create new Product Attribute Categories, they will always have the same commonly used attributes found in "Default".

Product Attributes pass Product Attributes to Products and are a container for Product Attribute Groups. Administrators will be prompted to reference a Product Attribute during the Products creation process. Once a Product Attribute group is chosen, your Product will inherit all of the Product Attributes contained in the Groups associated with the attribute family selected for the product.
