If your product has more than one option, like colors, material, size, etc, you can add product variations. Each combination of the available options will define a variant.
For example, if you have a shirt that comes in 2 colors Red and Black and have 3 sizes, Small, Medium, and Large, then you have 2 x 3 = 6 variants. Red Small, Red Medium, Red Large, Black Small, Blank Medium, and Black Large.
