Add all the products with attributes and features options

The attributes are the varieties that can have a product. For example, if you sell a dress, attributes can be color, size...

The attributes differ from the features is that they are selectable, i.e., the customer can choose color or the stature of a dress, but not the type of material or the composition which has been done.

Thanks to attributes you can generate combinations, giving rise to all the available variables of an article. In MegaProduct is not necessary to create these combinationsalready that the module allows to add those attributes individually and make the customer who selects the available options. However, it is essential to create the attributes and their values to configure the module. You can see how to create attributes and characteristics in PrestaShop 1.7 here.

In This link You can see the process of creation of the products. However you must take into account certain issues when creating the product to configure it with MegaProduct:

-Price: In PrestaShop prices tab you can set the price of the product. This price does not affect the configuration of MegaProduct, unless you specify the module that this figure is used. If you add a price, this figure will be displayed in the list of products, but not taken into account to calculate the cost of the item.  Yes it is very important to configure are the rules since taxes than prices without taxes will be introduced in megaproduct, but then the % indicated in this section will be added to the total cost.

-Transport: When you set the transport tab you must take into account that it will only be necessary to indicate here the measurements and weight of your product if they do not depend on megaproduct options.  If they depend on the options chosen by the customer in the module must indicate it there himself.

-Combinations: As you know, one of the great advantages of MegaProduct is that It is not necessary to create combinations to enable customer to choose among all the product options. This entails a great advantage for your store when a product has a lot of options and combinations it's been that the loading speed your store is affected and, therefore, also other important issues such as the SEO. If however you want to generate combinations, module allows you to use them to create combinations dependent groups but would not be more advisable if your product has many options. Attributes will be displayed in the front office so that the client selects the combination that I wanted.

-Quantities: When you think the product in PrestaShop shall not require that you set amounts, since the stock of the product will be set to MegaProduct. What is recommended is active have the option to allow orders when there is no existence so the shop follow allowing to place orders.
