Hi,

I have been following the ‘Advanced Method’ for setting up item specifics and noticed that in the ‘scope’ value field most of the attibutes are set to ‘Store View’ but some such as size and colour are set to ‘Global’.

Why is this and is it important to make sure they are set to either one?

Thanks

Hi James,

Very, very good question!

Keeping this as simple as possible, you want storeview attributes so that you can change the languages over or details over at storeview level, so that if or when you add in multiple eBay accounts or sites, you can change the values as required.

Configurable attributes are special, they have to be global for Magento to use them for building configurable products.

Does that help?
