are things that buyers attribute to a product; size 10 or giftwrap.
I know this because my dozen intrinsic characteristics didn't display well. Each one like "made in UK" had a box underneath it as though the customer was meant to say "yes" or "no" when the deed is already done. 
One of the series on describes attributes in a more organised way. Apparently they have options:
Attribute could be colour ; Option could be red..

There doesn't seem to be any subtlety about use of language to describe different relationships between products. These words are just pulled-out of a thesaurus. is a page about themes.

Error message

Which was trying to say that Fusion base theme doesn't work by itself unless you find some bit of code to hack; you are meant to install a starter theme as default, which quite likely downloaded at the same time.

Are you free?

Shipping modules now exist!

Two years ago I gave-up on Ubercart because I couldn't use the shipping module outside the US.
Things have got better. makes it possible to allocate each of the hundred or more countries to a zone, such as the ones your post office uses when charging for parcels. I only discovered this a day or two ago and spent an Olympic weekend allocating every single country I could find on my post office's web site a zone. was released yesterday by Andrew Foulston. Released for Drupal Commerce, it is not rejected by Ubercart and makes a data selector show-up under a Royal Mail heading (I discover that grey data on the drop-down menus is linked to other data selections, and forget quite how many clicks it took to find this).

Now, to get the last of my data out of ubercart global quotes I have tried disabling it and now even uninstalling it. And reinstalling it. Computer says no.
