Adding and Managing Products

Product Types:

  1. The Simple product type covers the vast majority of any products you may sell. Simple products are shipped and have no options. For example, a can of drink.
  2. A Grouped product is a collection of related products which can be purchased individually and can only consist of simple products. For example, a simple product for a PS3 could be a grouped product as there are 80GB, 120GB and 200GB variations of that same parent product.
  3. An External or Affiliate product is one which you list and describe on your web site, but is sold elsewhere.
  4. A Variable product is a product which has several different variations, each of which may have a different SKU, price, stock options etc. For example a t-shirt available in several different colors and/or sizes.

Note: Product Types: downloadable (digital), or virtual (service) product. Virtual products don’t require shipping – an order containing virtual products won’t calculate a shipping cost.
