Variation API allows you to define all the variations for a given "root" product. This is only available if you subscribe to ActionShip Listing product and want to upload the product to supported marketplaces like Walmart and Jet.
A variation is a specific color, size etc version of the "root" product. Each variation is a specific SKU | UPC, can have it's own size and weight and price and quantity. It is a concrete version of a product that can be sold.
For example, while many shoes can be the same brand design, different size can be separate "variations". When you buy a pair of shoes, you are buying a specific size, which is a specific variation. You can be in stock in one size (variation), and out of stock for anther size of the same shoe.
