You can create a Configurable Product in Magento 2 through many variations and the Configurable Product differs from a Single product by a drop-down list of option for each variation. That means it is simple for you to track inventory for the product variation because an option is actually a simple product with a unique SKU. This advance is the thing you could have if creating a simple product with custom options, however, it is impossible to track inventory for each variation by that way. Although it take much time to set up a configurable product, you can save time in the long term of your business’s growing. Therefore, the configurable product type is a good choice for products with multiple options.
