Create Combinations Manually in PrestaShop 1.6 Administrator

Products are often sold in variations called product combinations. These combinations do not physically change the product, but allow you to sell it in different sizes, colors, etc. The following tutorial walks you through the steps of manually creating combinations in the PrestaShop Administrator interface.

  1. Login to the PrestaShop Administrator Dashboard.
  2. Open Products

    Hover over Catalog in the menu column to the left of the screen, then click on Products. Click on an existing product to make a new combination. You will need to edit an existing product to create combinations. To create a new product, click on Add new product in the top right hand corner. New products require at least a name before they can be saved. Click on Save and Stay after naming the product.
