In case a customer wants to explore all possible options before purchasing a product, it's imperative to show different variants of the same product. A variant could mean different colours, size, shapes of the same product. For e.g. a backpack in red, blue and brown color is said to have 3 colour variants. A smartphone with 64GB and 128GB is said to have 2 memory variants.
You can customize the variants that you want to display on the product description pages.
How To Customize Variants?

Let's say, a T-shirt is available in multiple color variants. These variants will be shown on the PDP page as shown below. This section can be modified through Platform Panel.
