available to sell.
When you are finished adding
possible variations, click Add variations.
A Variations Matrix
appears, allowing you to add more detail for each variation combination.

SKU will be automatically generated for you if you do not add one.
On the Offer tab, enter offer
information (for example, handling time and delivery method) for your product. This
information will be copied automatically to each variation that you create. You can
modify the offer information, as needed, for each variation.
On the remaining tabs, add offer
information, images, a product description, keywords, and product attributes.
This information will appear in all variations of the product you want to
sell. You can edit product information at any time on the Manage Inventory
When you are finished adding your
product and its variations, click Save and finish.
