Drupal Commerce 2: Set up a Product Variation Type with Custom Fields
In part one and two of this Acro Media Tech Talk video series, we covered how you set up a new product attribute and used rendered fields, in Drupal Commerce 2. A product attribute is used to define options that customers would select when buying a product, such as colour. Rendered fields let the customer see the actual colour instead of just seeing the colour name.
The overall product in Drupal Commerce 2 consists of a product type, a product variation type, and product attributes. The product type defines the type of product that you're creating (i.e. hat). The product variation type is contained within the product type and defines the individual variations of the product, based on attributes (i.e. large blue hat). In part three of this series, we'll move away from attributes and show you how you can configure your product variations type. A product variation type will always have a title, sku and price, but we'll take it a step further and add in some custom fields.
This entire video series, when complete, will show you how to set up a new product in Drupal Commerce 2, from start to finish. The video is captured using our Urban Hipster Commerce 2 demo site.

Its important to note that this video was recorded before the official 2.0 release of Drupal Commerce and so you may see a few small differences between this video and the official release now available.
