How do variants and categories sync?

You can create Item-Matrix products with variants in Lightspeed Retail. These are products that have different selectable options in your Channel. For example, if you sell shoes you would want to create these products in Lightspeed Retail with variants for size, color or both. You can create your own custom attribute sets and variant values in Lightspeed.

You can view the video below to learn more about creating products in Lightspeed as a Master with variants.
