Creating an Attribute Set

One of the first steps when creating a product is to choose the attribute set that is used as a
template for the product record. The attribute set determines the fields that are available during
data entry, and the values that appear to the customer.

Your store comes with an initial attribute set called “default” which contains a set of
commonly-used attributes. If you would like to add only a small number of attributes, you can
add them to the default attribute set. However, if you sell products that require specific types of
information, such as cameras, it might be better to create a dedicated attribute set that
includes the special attributes (fields) needed to describe the product.

A single attribute can be used by as many different attribute sets as is necessary. For example,
the attribute “color” can be included in an attribute set for clothing, paint, or for any number of
different products.
