The ChannelAdvisor Complete application enables you to create product variations to organize and present your inventory to shoppers in a more traditional e-commerce fashion. Setting up a product variation allows you to offer a product with multiple attributes on one product page through the use of drop-down menus.

Additional benefits can include increased visibility and lower listing fees (eBay).
