In the basic installation Isotope eCommerce already has the most important attributes, which are normally needed for the operation of a shop. If you are still missing attributes for your project, you can create them at Attribute and configure them in theproduct type.

Attributes are additional data fields, which are made available in the backend when the products are entered and can then be displayed in the frontend at the desired location. For example, you can create a color select menu where the customer has to choose a color in the frontend before he can put the product into the shopping cart.

After clicking on Neues Attribut you have the following setting options:
