Anand and "Empiro Technologies Pvt. Ltd." are right about Product Variants.

I just wanted to extend their explanations :

  • A variant may have (by default) the same price as its template, but you can define a rule to compute the variant price based on the template's price (on the product variant's view)
  • Each variant product has its own stock quantities (as they are product.product records)
  • When creating a simple product, it basically creates a "default" variant and its related template, that's why you can find a first item in the "variants" list view when creating a simple product

Hope it helps anyone ^^


(and happy new year !)

Bruno Thank you for adding the information.

Hi bro..

let me tell u in short with eg..

lets consider Iphone....

Iphone-6 is product template....(product that has many types)


  • iphone-6 (white , 6gb memory, qulacomm processor)
  • iphone-6 (black, 4gb memory, intel processor)

these are product variants..... :)


If you are asking in Odoo-v8 then we can say that variants are the different version/flavours of the same product.

Example: A same shirt can be in different colour, size., where colour and size are the variants of the shirt. So here the product is shirt but available in different colour and different size.

How Odoo manages variants is that it has one 'product.template' and multiple product variants i.e 'product.product', so different products will be sharing the same template.

Hope this helps!!
