Product Matrix

A product matrix allows you to offer different varieties of an item with various features. Xilnex supports up to 2 different varieties for your item (i.e. a Red XL shirt). Follow these steps to learn how to create a product matrix.
You may also configure matrix products as separate single items. This method may be simpler for business with fewer matrix products.
