TAGs: Free - Offline - Standard - Pro - Enterprise
A well-configured catalog is essential to the success of your store.
It will allow you to set up a powerful sales process, generate clear reports and better manage your inventory.
Adding your products in the right way is the best way to achieve this.
Types of products:
Here are the 3 types of products you can add to your store
Simple product :
This type of product is a single product, without variants and which has its own inventory
Product with variants :
This type of product is actually a group of products that are similar but are offered in different variants such as: several sizes, colors, ...
Each variant of this product has its own inventory and is independent from the rest of the products in its group.
Composite product :
This type of product corresponds to a set of different products, which are assembled to create a set of products that we want to sell as a single unit.
Each single product or a product variant can be part of a composite product
