PrestaShop Attributes and PrestaShop Groups

Appropriate PrestaShop attribute management can ensure flexibility of e-commerce platform, since using them you can create different models and combinations of your products.

Sometimes people mix up these two notions and treat them as the same things. PrestaShop attribute groups should not be confused with the attributes (attribute options). First, you create attribute groups and then attribute options that will belong to this group. Attribute group is like container that holds all the variations of the characteristic, attribute group represents.

At the frontend attributes are options available for customers to choose from while placing the order for particular product. The easiest example is clothing. Lets say you are selling evening dresses online. The dresses differ in size, color or material, that correspondingly are attribute groups. Size, color or material variations, for example S, M, L are selections that will appear in drop-down at product page.
