What is a variable product in WooCommerce?
A variable product in WooCommerce allows you to create specific products that have multiple variations.
For example, you can list multiple colors of a t-shirt on display for your customers. You can add color, images, size, or any other variation your product might have. It also includes setting up attributes, terms, and variations.
Instead of adding several versions of a t-shirt as a separate item, you can use the variable products to combine them.
