Creating Magento Product Attributes

Product attributes are just that – attributes, or characteristics, of a product. They can be used to provide your customers with additional important information about your products.

If your product already has attributes, you can see them and edit them. You can also search through attributes using the search field, or you can click the New Attribute button to create a new attribute.

Once added, product attributes appear on the Product Details screen, like this Multi Select Attribute called Features.
