You can choose between Simple and Configurable Products.
A Simple Product is a basic product, with no options for the customer to choose (for instance if you are selling a t-shirt, there is only one size and color) and one price.
Configurable Products are simple products with options for the customer. For instance, if you wanted to sell the same t-shirt in multiple colors and sizes without having your customer have to look through multiple Simple products for each color and size, you can create a configurable product that has multiple size and color options for your customer to choose.
