This option allows you to activate a tool that can create thousands of variations in one operation at an unparalleled speed. In principle, it looks like the existing variation generator in PrestaShop, but with very important differences:
-The PrestaShop generator often crashes beyond a few hundred variants. The Merlin Generator can generate thousands of combinations. -It is super fast. -It is multi products, ie able to generate combinations on a selection of products in a single operation. -It does not require to delete existing combinations, it is able to update them and generate those which are missing. -It is able to recalculate price and weight impacts, while or without generating new variants. -It is able to recover the attributes and impacts of a product to generate similar combinations in other products
And much more...
-Do I need this option to see and edit existing combinations? No
-Can I add combinations without this option? Yes it is possible, but it is much longer, because it is then necessary to associate them attributes
-Can I create combinations via the csv / xls import without the generator option? Yes
