A collection of resources for administrating catalog attribute definitions.
Attributes are used to add custom definitions and characteristics to the following objects:
- Product attributes — are attributes that define the characteristics of products, enabling you to uniquely describe a product. They consist of options, properties, and extras. Refer to Product Attributes in the Guides section for more information.
- Customer attributes — are custom attributes that you can apply to customer accounts to add further definition for special uses, such as marketing campaigns, or discounts. Refer to Customer Attributes in the Guides section for more information.
- Order attributes — are custom attributes that enable you to uniquely describe an aspect of an order. Depending on the attribute definition, either you or a shopper can enter values for the order attribute. Refer to Order Attributes in the Guides section for more information.
Use the Product Types resource to manage the types for your product catalog. Product types act as configuration templates, which store a set of attributes common to all products associated with that type. Unlike categories, products can only be associated with a single product type.
