I'm trying to figure out the best way to create a product on Commerce 2.x.

What we have is physical products that don't have variation, so basically each product is a stand-alone. What would be the best practice for creating a product?

Currently, I created (in this order):

  1. Product Variation type (with fields that represent product properties)
  2. Product type (where I select the variation type)

I didn't create any attributes though.

Would this be the right way of doing it?

Also for my second question, I created a Product list page with Views and selected Table view. However, I can't find "add to cart" field nowhere.

Sounds like you've configured the entities properly. Nothing requires you to make use of attributes, so if you don't need them, you don't have to make them. : )

Re: the field formatter for Views to display an Add to Cart form, it hasn't been developed yet.
