What is the difference between a variant and an option in our Website Builder shopping cart editor?

Our Website Builder shopping cart feature allows you to add multiple variants and options for your products. Remember you must have a Business Plan in order to gain access to our shopping cart feature.

An option is something like the color and size of the product. A variant is the same product with a different option. For example, a t-shirt can be both red and blue. That would mean there are 2 variants of the product. You can only add a variant if you add an option first.

Variant and Option

When you add an option, it will appear on the top row next to "Hidden".

When you add a variant, it will appear in the row below your current product.

How do I add different options and variants of the same product?
