Price Variants allow you to differentiate a product using prices. A price variant can have its own price defined similar to the main item.
For example, a store item “Beer” can have different variants in bottle quantity. If a Beer has a quantity of 200ml and a price is defined as 10$, its variants can have a quantity of 300ml for a price of 15$, and 500ml for a price of 25$. The same can be applied to items that can be differentiated by size. For instance, products can be sold as side dishes or main course meals.

Create Price Variants
Price variants are part of main store items. Therefore, you must have a main store product before you can create price variants. You create price variants for an item when creating it or editing its details.
To add a price variant, click on the name of the category in which the main store item is listed.
Click Edit on the name of the item to which you want to add price variants to bring up its details page.
Scroll down to price variant and click Create Price Variant.
Add a price description and price to your price variant and click Save. The price description should help customers understand why they should pick the variant instead of the main item. May be it is bigger or smaller than the main item. Furthermore, a price variant can either have a price higher or lower than that of the main store item.
One store item can have more than one price variant. For instance, pizza can be sold in more than two sizes with each one having a different price. Therefore, you can add more price variants depending on the store item you are dealing with.
Add Options to Price Variants
A price variant allows you to have different versions of the same item for different prices. Usually, the price difference is caused by different ingredients, item size or quantity, and preparation methods, among other things. You can also customize price variants further using option groups.
Price variants primarily inherit the option groups of the parent item. However, in exceptional cases, it may become necessary that a variant has different options. In that case, you can add an option group to the variant.
If a variant is assigned one or more option groups, it will no longer display options associated with the parent. Instead, it will only display the options it is associated with.
To add an option group to a price variant, select an item from the catalog and scroll to the price variants section. Select the price variant you would like to update and click the pencil icon to edit.
On the Price variant’s details section, find the Option Groups label and click the dropdown icon to choose an existing option group. You can pick one or more option groups by marking the checkboxes next to the option group names. You may also create a new option group altogether.
After selecting the relevant option group, remember to save the changes to the variant and the main item.
Update Price Variants
You can update a price variant to change the price description, price, and visibility and to associate it with a schedule. Disabling the visibility of a price variant removes it from the list of variants for the specific store item. Associating it with a schedule hides the variant from the menu when it is inactive.
To update a price variant, scroll down to the price variant section of an item’s details page and click on the Edit icon. You should remember to save the variant if you make any changes.
Delete Price Variants
You can permanently remove a price variant from your store if and when turning off its visibility does not serve the purpose. Deleting a price variant disassociates it with the main store item, making the action irreversible.
To delete a price variant, scroll down to the price variant section on the item details page of the product to which it is attached and click on the Edit icon next to its name. On the price variant’s details page, click on the Delete button and confirm the permanent removal of the variant.
