Why Use Attributes?
Custom Product Attributes are needed for some integrations for example Google Shopping Feeds that require GTIN, MPN, Brand, Age Groups, etc.
They can also be useful for adding product information to help customers make informed decisions. These could be Condition, Flavour, Material, Pattern, Age Group, Gender and more.
You can also add your own attributes such as Picture Quality, Number of HDMI ports, Online or In Store Only information, etc.
Where to Use Attributes
Attributes by default show up on the Product Page and within the Category Page filters.
You can hide or show the attributes by clicking the 3 dots next to the attribute itself and unclick to hide from the product page or category page (filter)
