This guide is a continuation of the Assigning Products to Product Classes article.
It may turn so that there is no required product class at the stage where it’s necessary to assign a product to a product class. In such a case, a store admin has the possibility to create a new product class using the tools of the Attributes tab of the product details page and assign this new product class to the product.
For this purpose:
1. On the Attributes -> Global tab of a product details page, locate the Product class section and click the Change button.
The product in question can either have no product class assigned to it or have some other product class assigned that should be changed for a new one.
2. Choose the New product class option in the drop-down.
3. Type in the name of a new product class in the field next to the New product class option.
4. Click Save changes to assign the newly created product class to the product.
That’s it! You’ve created a new product class and assigned it to a product at the same time:
Be warned that the newly created product class does NOT have any product class attributes configured for it. So you must proceed with adding attributes to this product class to make it work. Product class attributes can be added on the same page the product class was created and can be applied globally and on a per-product basis.
