The following is an introduction to terminology used in Drupal Commerce.
|Term||What does it mean?|
|Attribute||Something about the product which creates a unique choice. For clothing this would be the color and size. A subscription may have monthly or annual billing options.|
|Variation||A product variation represents an option of specific attributes for a product. For example, the Large Blue sweatshirt versus the Medium Red sweatshirt. This is what is purchased and has a price. It has a sku that must be unique across all products and variations.|
|Product||The actual product, a sweatshirt, which contains all of its variations. Every product has at least one variation.|
maybe some general Drupal terms as well, like "Entity reference", for docs that use "entity reference fields"
