Product Attributes are intended for including additional pieces of structured information defining products. We believe that as a store owner you strive to provide as much information as possible for your products, improve your users’ experience and increase your sales. In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to create your custom Product Attributes in OpenCart 3 and how to assign them to Attribute Groups.
