Every product has one or more properties. These properties matter to buyers, so It's important to show them. Clients want to know the composition of products, size of clothes, etc. This information helps people to make choice.
Product properties are displayed in the form. A manager who talks to the client on the phone will be able to find the information quickly. Customers will see all the product information on the site.
